I just finished my 5 th BCG treatment. I am 56 and this is the second time I have had aggressive cancer. I had it when I was 43 and went through the course of BCG. Then is was aggressive superficial and in one location. Now it has returned and is cis and all over the bladder, but still superficial. The doctor recommended BCG and it sounded good to me. I have read several posts and am concerned that others have gone the same path and regretted it because the cancer came back and was worse, invaded muscle or lymph odes . For those people where the cancer cam back were you being tracked with cyctoscopes every three months, along with a urine analysis. Also what type of cancer was it and how much penetration had occurred. Just wondering what the best path is. Keep the bladder and risk a recurrence possibly worse and more complicated or remove it and suffer the surgery and recovery process. Also the question is in which case can I continue working. The surgery would knock me out for 4 to 6 months and the BCG would require me to take off 4 Fridays every three months for 3 years. Assuming I had no bad side effects. Not sure which way to go.
