Hi Nancy

Congrats on the all clear and on moving to the 6 month cysto cycle. I was moved to the 6-month cycle in June being 33 months all clear. I like you am not totally comfortable with this arrangement but since my original dx was TA Grade 1, my Uro seems to think I am ready. We have agreed I will have a urine test beginning of Oct which my GP will arrange.
I also like you am done with BCG, which has been confirmed by my Uro, 2nd opinion Uro, and Dr. Lamm. The bladder can just take so much.
I wish you all the best,
Jack

Nix, excellent news. I know what you mean regarding the 3 month follow up and the comfort level with that time period. However, you will like the 6 month span. And in 2-3 years we will enjoy the annual cysto even more.
