October thru November of 2000. Six BCG treatments on Fridays. Stent removed after the third treatment,next three treatments without the stent. In December 2000, I was checked in the hospital to see how the bladder and ureter handled the BCG treatments. Biopsy was clean. Stent place in the right ureter again, for two weeks. I am now scheduled for 3 maintainance BCG treatments starting March 16th 2001. I don’t know what else to tell you, does anyone out there relate? Will I survive this thing, so far, so good.
