Re: Who has had BCG treatments?

Sandy,

I did a lot of research when I was diagnosed back in 2005 with a Ta, Grade II, and it seemed that the only time they treat Ta with BCG is if it's high grade (grades III or IV). They do monitor with cystoscopies, and I had one every 3 months for the first year, every six months for the next two years, and now just once a year for the past four years. So it sounds like your docs are in agreement with the advice from a lot of urologists, which is good.
