Gary,

Multiple high grade recurrences warrant a serious discussion about getting rid of the bladder. My chemo brain makes me forget sometimes and I don't recall if you mentioned going to a top bladder cancer specialist yet. If not, I highly advise it is time todo that.

These recurrences seem to be saying that the BCG regimen is not working.

Sorry to hear of the setback. High recurrence rates are an unfortunate aspect of BC. Hopefully, BCG maintenance is an option. Take care, Phillip

I'm going to have to have another surgery to get them out? Then the doc and I will go over the next thing to do. I may push for more BCG treatments or some other kind of treatments. I would like to go 5 years with out cancer. So far I have only went 2 years.
