Vince,

Great to hear your good news! I will start my maintenance from early Dec and finish before Chrismas.

Take care and hope all the folks good luck ahead!

That is great news! My latest check also came back negative on the cytology. However, I am still showing inflammation in the bladder. Doctor thinks this may have been due to the the interferon, so they will take me off of interferon for the remainder of the maintenance treatments.

I start the second round of 3 maintenance next week.

Just want to share some good news! I had another cysto last Tuesday and it came back clear. Cytology results not known yet.

A good relief for the holidays!

Yes, after my first 6 treatments with BCG alone, we still found cancer after the biopsy. I was then started on another 6 treatments using BCG + Interferon. My biopsy after that round of treatments was clean. I just completed my first round, 3x maintenance treatments using BCG + Interferon 7 weeks ago. I will get checked every 3 months, (cysto and urine cytology) and if I remain cancer free, we will do the maintenance treatments every 6 months over the next two years. So I am scheduled for a check up in August and likely 3x treatments in November.
