good question slabman...do you suppose they make up their own protocol? I'd ask and see what his stats prove?...also many don't go for the reduced BCG mainenance (they go full strength)...whats their information that Dr. Lamm doesn't know?....I'm curious myself.........Pat

I've been terminated on maintenance BCG for over a year because of arthritis issues. However, I seem to remember that we were scheduled for quarterly maintenance treatments last year.

That article brings up the question of how members of this board are receiving their treatments. While I start my first of 3 maintenance treatments next week, I am under the impression my Doc wants a 6 week interval between the 3 instillments. However, this article speaks of quarterly treatments, meaning there would be 9 weeks in between the 3 treatments. Sooooo....what are others on this board doing?
