I had BCG after initial Turbt, then another Turbt followed by BCG, then another Turbt followed by weekly BCG and 12 monthly maintenance treatments.
Cancer free now 18 months. Took a while for BCG to work for me.

Guess I am in the 20%. I was clear after the 2nd look and 2nd TURB and it came back in just under 2 years. Went for the RC at that point.

:unsure: Hope so, let's try! The report is about 248-pgs.

"Because of the tendency for bladder cancer to recur, it is extremely important to have careful follow-up after the initial resection. Most authorities advocate a follow-up cystoscopy within three months of initial resection. Studies have shown that 80 percent of those patients who are recurrence-free at this ‘second look’ follow-up will remain free of
disease for at least three years afterwards.

Conversely, 90 percent of patients who do show recurrent disease at this second look will continue to have recurrences during the first three years after initial resection. In one study carried out at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, New York, it was found that up to 76 percent of patients who had already undergone a trans-urethral resection for
superficial bladder cancer had residual lesions or recurrent lesions requiring further excision when they underwent a re-examination only two to six weeks after the initial resection."

This got my attention because I have my last BCG-treatment (round #1) this Friday and my first followup "cysto" in 7-weeks :S

B) Any of you folks ever purchased Dr(Phd)Moss's report on Bladder Cancer?

IF so do you have an opinion? My son (Family Prac Dr) and wife (OR-Nurse/Mgr) pressured me into purcahing it! I do believe it will be an asset if the BCG does not work and I have to have real-chemo and/or an Rc. :side:
