BCG Treatments Questions

5 years 9 months ago - 5 years 9 months ago #47491 by alanlee
It has been awhile since I was here, but after almost 3 years my BC has moved into a CIS phase, still non invasive but higher grade now, and will be starting BCG this coming Wednesday. Everyone is saying I will be fine, yet I feel as if I am going into the unknown and am a bit scared.

I have read everything and one thing becomes more confusing than the next....the Dr said a six week program and then follow ups every 3 months for 3 weeks, for a few years is my protocol.

Nothing has been shown to have become invasive anywhere so I am hoping this stuff works the way "they" say it will. The side effects will be what they will be, and it wont stop me from trying this, but I also wonder if I should just have the bladder removed at the first signs that this is not working.

Any feedback has always been greatly appreciated.
