The cancer is NOT in the muscle wall!! Can I get a "Woohoo"?!!!!! He'll have to finish healing from this last surgery and at the end of the month, he'll start the 6 week BCG treatments. The cancer is apparently a more aggressive form, but for now things look okay. It was only in the bladder, it didn't spread to anything else. And the BCG treatments are supposed to be very helpful in making sure everything is gone. He'll have to be checked every 3 months afterwards for recurrence and if the cancer stays away, then he can drop down to 6 months and eventually down to only once a year if things stay good. If the cancer comes back, they are looking at bladder removal. But we'll cross that bridge if we get to it.
Thanks for all the good thoughts! Much appreciated.
