transitional cell carcinoma grade I-II stage Ta
After the last IVP, I was fine until the next check up. I had not one, but 10 tumors. I had another TURBT. All were Ta I/II. I decided to go to M D Anderson for another opinion. I had biopsies done there. Another small tumor had already begun to develop. MDA removed this and did some biopsies, revealing the same Ta I/II tumor and a small focused area of CIS. My bladder was perforated during the biopsies so the healing of this delayed my BCG for about a month.
I have had the inital 6 BCG treatments and 2 main. treatments. I have been all clear since. I will have another round of BCG in July and then another P & P after that. I have had a good response to BCG, but plan to continue the schedule according to the Lamm protocol.
I will finish my 4th round of three main. treatment this week. I had a cysto in Sept. 05 and Dec. 05 and both were clear. I will have another cysto in March. I also plan to have an IVP this Spring.
