husbands 1st cysto was created by mlp51
My husband was diagnosed with superficial BC/CIS 6/07, turb & turmor removal 7/08, back in 8/07 to check (all clear) then had 6 weeks of BCG in Sept/Oct, another look 1/08 (all clear) then the 3 wk treatment in Feb. He goes tomorrow for his 1st in office cysto; naturally he is very anxious & really wondering what to expect. Any advice that I can pass on would be greatly appreciated. He is seeing Dr. Sam Chang at Vanderbilt; is anyone familiar with Dr. Chang?

Dear MLP,

We have a poster whose Mother is being treated at Vancerbilt. I did a little search on our home page and found several references to Dr. Chang. These tools may help you in your quest...

1. Go to forum home page and key VANDERBILT into the Search Box

2. Once you see the referenced threads, once again go to the Search on that page
key in CHANG

Not being familiar with Vanderbilt (except that it is a very good hospital for Urology and Cancer) this is the best help that I have for you.

Good luck on the Cysto tomorrow. Been there!!!

Best regards,
Rosemary
