Very happy to hear that you were able to finish the BCG treatments. I hope you get the best results possible with the medication. Please check in to let us know how that is going as you go through the monitoring process.

Here's to a great beach season!!!

Having that questionable delay, we did another complete 3X of the BCG maintenance. No problems and finished up yesterday. Next scope was also moved out to 3 months. Put positive on top of the list, and think we've got BC on the run!
Now to focus on new issue, which has fewer options. Back on a medication, needing testing every 2 weeks for 3 months to monitor results, and evaluate situation and direction. Attempts are to halt, or at least slow, progression. Looking forward to a perfect beach season soon.

That is great news about your blood count going back up in the normal range. Glad you can resume your BCG treatments and hope you continue to kick any and all cancer's butts!

Previous BCG usually had the 1 hr time 'to go'. Yes, 3 hr was a surprise. Is longer better? I don't know either. No increased side effects. Will watch final (#3) next week, and maybe drink some extra liquid after 1 hr. I always have it done early AM, then head right to work. Yes, the boss (and others) know about my bleach disinfecting process during that day. I put a sign on the potty! No need to 'frighten' others as to what BCG actually is.

I guess it would be good. I would be concerned about side effects being worst. But maybe not, I don't know!!

Mine says 2 hr, if you can. Minimum 1 hr. One time was only 30 minutes! Made 3 hr, cause I didn't have to go at all?
