Just an update on my tests after gemcitabine. I went for my 2nd cysto after receiving 6 series of the gemcitabine in December, on August 27th and my bladder was clear, I got my cytology report today and no cancer cells present. I know the odds were not in my favor, but so far it has worked. After two years, three TURBTs, 18 BCG treatments, 6 gemcitabine treatments I finally got my first clear cytology in April and now a second one! So keep trying whatever they offer you, you might be in that 30%.

Hematuria 4/2016
TURBT 5/2016
BCGx6 7/2016
Reoccurrence & TURBT 2/2017
BCGx6 4/2017
BCGx3 7/2017
TURBT 10/2017
Gemcitabine X6 12/2017
Cytology negative 4/2018
Cytology negative 8/2018

I’m a little late in responding but I received 6 treatments with gemcitabine and finished end of December. My 3 month cysto was clear with a negative urine test also, finally after two years I got a clean test. The doctor told me to come back in 4 months since mine kept coming back with the BCG instead of 6 months. I’m headed back for my cysto tomorrow. I will update after my appointment. Please let me know if you out received the treatments please.

There are some prior comments about the BCG alternatives on this site, as well with a google search. Click the SEARCH tab on the menu bar at the top of the page, and enter one of the following terms for each search:

"intrarvesical gemcitabine" and intravesical gemzar"
as well as
"intravesical mitomycin" and "intravesical MMC"

Best

Has anyone with NMIBC recurrences had intravascular gemcitabine? I mean a series treatments installed thru a catheter after non response to BCG treatments? I would be interested in hearing about experience.
