Two Week Follow Up to Surgery

I just had the two week follow up and the polyp they removed on February 15 was cancer so this is strike 2 (strike 1 was the first operation). When (or if) I have one more strike; I will have to start BCG Therapy. BCG Therapy is where they inject genetically modified tuberculosis into my bladder once a week. This genetically modified tuberculosis kills off any cancer in the bladder without giving you tuberculosis (in most cases).

I go back in three months for another scope. I did not have a scope today – just a report on the surgery results. Also every time I get cancer it resets the “every three month” scopes back to zero. So I have to start over with my first year of “every three month” scopes and June 7th will be scope number one. Bummer.
