I did not have BCG until after my 3rd turbt. Didn't even have post-op mitomycin until that 3rd trip. I have been clean since. I agree with everyone else that if the tumor was single, small, papillary, noninvasive then you are probably ok with watchful waiting.

BCG Maintenance after 6 week treatment
Low grade, non invasive? BCG could be overkill. If your pathology is Ta, grade 1, singel tumor less than 3-4cm, you could be just fine waiting 3 months. And also migght be lucky to have no evidence of residual disease. If not, it is not a life threatening move to wait 3 months.
good morning. was dxd w/ noninvasive low grade bladder cancer. one dr. said to do bcg. the other wants to watch and wait and do another cystoscopic exam in July. We're going with the watchful waiting. Is that a good idea? Any input would be appreciated as we r new at this and very apprehensive. Thanks
