Congratulations on your progress so far!! Will keep my fingers crossed for your scope. I am five years out, and I think the only "side effects" I have are an increased nervousness every time my exam is approaching.

Welcome to our "club" and found us but sorry you had to join! A lot of good people here and a lot of survivors. Here's to limiting your treatments to BCG! Keep us posted. Each poster adds something and all keep us humble, honest and thriving!
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.
Im 49 yrs old,I got diagnosed with non invasive BC on Sept.10/ 2013. I have finished 5 of the BCG treatments with 1to go!! I've experienced only mild side effects. I feel better than I've felt in my urinary health in a long time. After my 6th treatment my urologist said ill get a scope done to see if it has recurred. Even though I'm feeling better I don't want to get my hopes up too high. This is a nervous and scary time, but I do think a positive attitude is the way to approach it..
