That is good news!!

I am now almost 15 years from CIS diagnosis, BCG, etc.  Still getting CT-Urogram every five years and annual cystoscopy. 

Keep up the good work!

Had a Cystoscopy and cytology test last week and both were negative. Now I'm 3 years cancer free!!   I'm going on 6 month surveillance cystoscopies. He is also doing a CT urogram in 6 months.  So far so good! I hope everyone has good fortune on their journey.

Finished BCG instillation #30 today. That completes the SWOG protocol for me. Started in October of 2020, First induction series didn't work, fortunately my doctor suggested another induction series and so far my tests have all been clear. I see him in Feb. 2024 and if that is good he'll probably just put me on surveillance. I was lucky to be able to tolerate the BCG at full strength with just some urgency and burning for a day. It's been quite the journey since I first posted on this message link. I'm very thankful for all the support and advice I have received in this forum. Good luck to everyone dealing with this.
