Donna, same here as Nix stated. Just had my follow up two weeks ago and after a nerve wrenching week I got the "benign" call. Started 2nd round of BCG last week. Everything will be just fine.

Hi Donna, Good luck on Monday, I will keep you in my thoughts - it is easy to worry before the cysto, and a great reason to celebrate after the all clear sign.

Donna you slept with BCG, tumors never had a chance.
You will be clear, so will monitor on my birthday.
Don't forget my present.

My first cysto was the time that I was diagnosed in December.The uro team did not use drugs, but used a deadening gel. My doctor used a monitor and I saw the tumor up close and personal. There was no denying at that point that I had a very large coral shaped tumor floating around inside me.
I am scheduled for another one on Monday and I am hoping that there will be nothing to watch on TV! Fingers crossed!

My URO doesn't have a monitor. However, he seems to to very up on what is going on. He taught for a few years at UTSA(San Antonio)and is a diplomate of urology (not sure what diplomate implies). His bigget concern is to not miss anything.

DX 5/6/2008 TAG3 papillary tumor .5 CM in size. 2 TURBS followed by 6 instillations of BCG weekly with a second round of 6 after a 6 week wait.

Never had a scope with a monitor - all have been with the eyepiece. I think I read somewhere that there is a particular type of light they can use that lets the doc see better (near UV or something and done in Europe), but I've never had it done that way either.
