Hello folks. I was on these boards 4 years ago but changed email address and couldn't remember password, I think my old user name was JD_Smith58. But anyway. I've been dealing with bladder cancer tumors for 4 years now. I've had many removed via cystoscope fulguration and many times I've been anesthetized for the procedure. The last 2 checkups resulted in fulguration of a tumor cluster. I had one done last week and was for the first time in quite a bit of pain after the surgery. I did the BCG treatment 2 years ago and only had one clean checkup. My doctor wants to try that again but I'm not going for it. With the side effects and not great results, I want to try something different. He suggested I try Mitomycin C, same process, different drug. Has anybody had these treatments? I have my first treatment next Wednesday and every week after that for 5 more weeks. I'm praying this works. It seems to be a little harder every time I get a check up.
