The more I learn about BCG the more I get upset with my uro. He only gave me 6 treatments and said I didn't need any more. Sence then I've had 7 serguries for tumors. Right now I don't have any tumors, so it wouldn't do any good to go to St Louis. It just ticks me off that he would be so arrigant about it!!
Yes, Dr. Lamm is known almost as the "father" of BCG treatments. But not only that, while I do not know him personally, he was kind enough to answer, by email, some questions I had as I went through that "adventure." A lot of physicians wouldn't take the time to do that for someone who is not their patient.
