Diagnosed in January 2017

1 year 5 days ago #54441 by cltyxx
Hi Sara/Alan,

I had a good discussion with my doctor today on the next steps.'

My doctor suggested 1) BCG + Interferon after another TURBT, possibly in the 1st week of 2018; or 2) RC.

I will go with 1) for now. Meantime, I want to try my best (changing diet and going alkaline) and see how it goes.

Thanks for all the advice!

It is really a puzzle to me. I guess I will just take it one at a time, :)

Surprisingly, I feel much better and calmer nowadays than the time when I first diagnosed. Life will go on and I am just enjoying it every day.

Have a good weekend!

Yup, your case is a puzzler but, I am not surgeon. Plus, I have learned to almost expect surprises with some health issues including mine! Here's to you getting to the end of this and eradication.

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.

Hi Alan,

I did have one TURBT with no conclusive pathology report in early March. My 2nd TURBT did not find any cancer. So it is a little surprising to me they found some cancer cells from the scar area. Most likely, I may need to do a 3rd TURBT.

Thanks!

I also second the second opinion option! It almost sounds like not all the cancer was taken on the first TURB or possibly a re-seeding?
