It has been awhile since I was here, but after almost 3 years my BC has moved into a CIS phase, still non invasive but higher grade now, and will be starting BCG this coming Wednesday. Everyone is saying I will be fine, yet I feel as if I am going into the unknown and am a bit scared.
I have read everything and one thing becomes more confusing than the next....the Dr said a six week program and then follow ups every 3 months for 3 weeks, for a few years is my protocol.
Nothing has been shown to have become invasive anywhere so I am hoping this stuff works the way "they" say it will. The side effects will be what they will be, and it wont stop me from trying this, but I also wonder if I should just have the bladder removed at the first signs that this is not working.
Any feedback has always been greatly appreciated.
2/2011: diagnosed with non invasive Type1 stage1...and had turbt in march....first follow up 5/19/11, had laser again as it re-occurred.
10/12/2011 TURPT with more bladder laser....still non invasive..
