Haven't posted for a long time on bladder cancer progress
Doing very well with the BCG injections for the past two and a half years. No new tumors in about two years. The Dr. says he will continue with the BCG twice a year. For those who worried about the affect of BCG, please try it . In the beginning I had a bad reaction then The Dr. watered down the amount of BCG. He said even with a reduced percentage it would still be effective, he was right.

I don't know what BCG is but I'm so glad it's working. The best to you.

4. Glad to hear it's going well.
I just passed my two-year check-up and this time I got to watch it on TV (sadly, no DVD was available). It was strange but kind of cool to see the inside of my bladder. I go back at the end of the year. I never look forward to cystoscopies, but that's one test that feels awesome to pass!

Be well. :)
