@Courtney_J Hi, I think I've said this in a few of the threads, so sorry if it's repetitive. But I just had stage 1 so I was lucky and my treatment was brief and effective. I had the TURBT procedure done to get the tumor and see how and if it had spread and they were able to get it with the one go. Then a few hours later I had the BCG treatment to get any remaining cancer cells. I had a bit of pain from the TURBT which I think it pretty standard given what it is, and then I did have some flu-like symptoms after the BCG. But it was all worthwhile because I'm still cancer free today!
Stage 1 intermediate risk. I was diagnosed May 2018. I have had 3 TURBT and 12 BCG Treatments. I tolerated the BCG’s well. No pain but urgency for 24 hrs after. Up to now I have been receiving cystoscopies every 3 months. NED.
