Hi Barb ........ Doug is referring to my 6th, and final "graduation" BCG treatment, described in Episode 4. Got it? I don't understand or know all about stents, but mine was EXTREMELY uncomfortable with multiple discomforts for the 2 weeks. It was a blessing to have it removed. Thanks for following my journey.
What is #6 that Dougg is talking about, I have only seen 4, you did a great job informing all of us about your journey, It is no picnic. Did I tell you that I have a kidney stent? It goes from my stoma to my kidney, I have it changed every 5 weeks. I don't mind, without it I would have lost my kidney as the ureter was blocked. Good luck with your journey.
pT3a no mo

Hi Doug ......... a few smiles on the journey are good. But no cake! I haven't seen any reference to a time frame for the effects of BCG to "wear off", specifically the frequency. I'll be out of the free pills tomorrow. Thanks for following the journey.
