Could be a part of the BCG. Tumors do not grow back that fast...3 weeks. Most if not all that respond on these boards are not doctors and I am not one. Perhaps you could call the office. Sometimes nurses can help or, pass that note along and your URO may be able to respond via text or email if he should check while out of the country.
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.
I'm a very healthy 65 year old male. I was diagnosed with CIS in October. Went through TURBT, and then 6 weeks of BCG. I had little to no side effects from BCG. Perhaps after the 4th I was a bit achy.
Nonetheless, almost to the day, three weeks later I had a couple of days of little red clots showing up in my urine. This lasted about 48 hours and then it cleared up.
My Urologist is currently out of the country, so I cannot consult with him. I live in a rural part of the country as well so access to other professionals is not very good.
Can this still be the after effect healing from the BCG treatments?
Or can the cancer come back that fast (3 weeks) and I am seeing the results of the reoccurrence?
I am hoping a health care professional will see this?
