They found a 1.1cm tumor in my ureter and few spots
of smaller tumor. SO my left Kidney has to go. They can't assess the stage unless they open up. SO the course of action is chemo in case I need it. Since they can't do chemo with one kidney.
The chemo I am about to receive is the same/similar to those given for invasive bladder cancer.
I heard the treatment is based on 21 days cycle where as you get two injections the first week and rest for two weeks. and repeat for 4 months. Am I correct?
I know about the side effect how it affect some more than others.
For those who had BCG and the likes and chemo how do you compare the two.
If you had to stay 8 hours on the dentist chair being worked on without novocaine would you prefer a chemo day instead? or a BCG day?
I am trying to see how much personal sensitivity play a role in chemo.
My sister for example said that her chemo was hard but not as hard as going to the dentist for a root canal
What is your experience?
