Nine years Cancer Free and counting

3 years 1 week ago #52103 by Nix
Hi Suda,
I am so sorry to hear of your husbands bladder cancer, but so happy you found this forum.
I originally had 6 BCG's and one year later had a reoccurrence diagnosed as
CIS.
So went back to BCG, in total I had 23 (including the first 6) treatments My bladder was really messed up from all the BCG's. It took two years to clear up
from all the treatments.
I can't say I had any problems with the first 6, but everyone reacts differently.
I always advise people to get second and third opinions, with the best Bladder Cancer doctors that they can see with their insurance.
Also, put this out there on this forum, because you may be surprised how many patients live near you and can advise.
Best of luck, and please keep me informed.

Hi Nancy
That's wonderful news.
My husband was diagnosed with Ta and had two TURBT in 2012
6/13 'Tis and BCG 6 instillation
10/16 after three years of cancer free now back again TURBT in November.
I really don't know what to expect now. Again the same as the last time? BCG again?
He had some side effects with the BCG.

How many BCG total did you have before this last visit?

Does this make you the longest survivor on this site? There may be others that have survived longer but they have forgotten us and Nancy never has.
