Interferon and BCG-Doctor refused to give

11 years 3 months ago #14749 by Sol
Hello everybody,

To refresh, I was diagnosed in May 2007 with T1 High Grade non invasive Bladder cancer. Doctor also mentioned that it was multi focal. I had one round of 6 BCG treatments. After the first clean cysto the second showed reoccurrence. My doctor pushed hard for Neobladder surgery, but if I am willing to take a risk he would do another round of BCG if I ask for it.

Here is my concern: When I mentioned to him that according to what I researched the right thing to do is to give Interferon and BCG he didn’t seem to agree and only prescribed BCG without the Interferon.

How come he disagreed with this? Why wouldn’t he try the Interferon and BCG especially if I failed the first time?

Sincerely,
Sol,
