Nix,

FWIW, my uro had me do 6 weeks on, 6 off, then 6 more and that was it. He reasoning was that BCG can cause serious problems as a cumulative protocol. He also studied under Dr. Lamm in San Antonio when he was there so he did deviate. Also, his reasoning is mine was caught early (small papillary tumor) so the lesson here is everyone is different.

Congrats again on 6 years!

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.

Nancy I believe thar Dr. Lamn does additional BCG like every other year to keep the immune system on alert.
