mytomycin c for 6 weeks

10 years 5 months ago #25538 by cljjlk
Suzy,

Last year at this time I was completing 8 weeks of Mitomycin C and other than some minor side effects (fatique and the normal evasive irritation)I have done OK. A year later I have had 4 cystos and they have all been clear. I know some have done better with BCG and some with Mitomycin. :unsure: What we all strive for are those clean cystos. Hang in there.

I never had BCG. My uro preferred an 8 week course of Mitomycin C. I was TaG3 plus CIS. I have never had a recurrence in 8¾ years. I wish the same for everyone else. Perhaps you will have such a response.

Hi Suzy

I was TA Grade 1. The BCG after 2 failures, finally did work for me. I am now 16 months cancer free.

Have you had a 2nd opinion?

I wish you all the best on Thursday.
