Hang in there rheako.  Keep us up to date on all your stuff, how it goes, in case we end up following your path.  I will be praying for success with your gem/doce.  Stay Strong, You Got This!  Eddie

Well I had my second TURBT on Monday. I suggested that since my tumor came back so quickly with the BCG txs, we should consider alternatives. My MD totally agreed and I'll start the gem/doce txs in 3 weeks. Will keep you posted. Going on vacation for a week in the meantime! Healing of a different kind...

Well, I just had my 3 month cystoscopy following my first 6 BCG Treatments and a cystoscopy followup.  Does that make sense?  Anyway, it's been 3 months and the Doc says all looks normal.  I guess that means I get to start a round of 3 new BCG Treatments starting Tuesday.  So far things are going along successfully for me.  I kind of dreaded this scope knowing that I have been just sitting around for the last 3 months waiting and was worried about the outcome.  I guess that's the process and I must have passed this test.  I hope you all are well.  If you are going thru more treatments, I hope that is going well.  If you are just waiting for the next step, I hope you can keep a good attitude and stay strong.  I'll post how my second round of BCG is going.  Until next week, hang in there.  Eddie
