Had my 2nd incident of superficial bladder cancer last fall and had 6 treatments of mitomycin. Considerable burning by the last treatment. Now my urologist has started me on 3 “preventive” treatments of mitomycin… 7 months after first insertions and one month after a “clean” cystoscopy. After the 2nd treatment I had significant blood in urine for about 3 hours and am currently on my 9th day of continued “burning”… although improving daily… I did go on antibiotics after 8 days and a culture is still being processed. I am hesitant to take a 3rd treatment of mitomycin, scheduled for 4 days from now and wonder if this is really helpful???

i am a 2 yr. survivor of high grade bladder cancer w/2 surgeries and 24 bcg treatments behind me. i didn’t have med. ins. and found that organon, the co. that makes bcg, will donate it free of charge without income requirements or applications. this saved some $$$.

#29

Diagnosed with Bladder Ca in 2004, since have had numerous treatments and low grade tumors removed. Still feeling good but the aggravation of 3 month cysto’s and letdown when another tumor is found is sometimes tough. Thought sharing and information would be worthwhile.

Hi everyone my name is Larry and i have bladder cancer which i am undergoing chemo therapy for. I just joined this group to find out more about it and to have a support group with which i can talk to other people with the same infection.

I am not sure who sent the message about brussel sprouts and bladder prevention cancer to me, but I appreciate it very much.

This site is VERY confusing with no good explanation as to how to sort out such things as who sent a message and how to directly respond to that person.

Maybe in time…

I am a 64 year old male who has had a radical cystectomy in Mar 2008. Cancer was confined to the wall of the bladder. There was no spread and I now just get CT scans every 6 months.

I live in the northeast and suffer from seasonal depression. I basically hibernate from november until april. Besides moving, I’d really like to talk to people about how they’ve conquered their depression. I’m a really cynical person and depression has got me beat :confused:
