Very glad to hear your good news. Been there, done that, and want to tell you it gets better over time, with each "all clear" check-up. Will you be having maintenance BCG treatments for a period of time? There are several different protocols for that.
Small TA Grade 1, May-06; recur (2 tiny), same, June-08; TURBTs both times. BCG begun July-08, dosage to 1/3rd May-10, completed treatment December-11. All clear since 2008.
Congrats on finishing your BCG treatments. That's good news on your 3 week check. Every clear cysto is "winning". Your uro seems to be very vigilant in checking you again on the 19th. It's good to feel that your doctor is keeping a watchful eye on you.
Thanks for the reminder of how important it is to keep up with those appointments!
Best wishes... Catherine

After finishing my bcg treatments I went for a biopsy 3 weeks later. No tumors were found. I go back Nov. 19 for recheck. I'm nervous. I haven't noticed any syptoms. And believe me I'm always very aware that my situation can change. I know with bladder cancer the reoccurance rate is high. I'll take every good result. But not gonna let my guard down. I know how important it is to make every Dr. appointment. I let my guard down once. I'm not gonna do that again.
