Thanks for the info Mike.

I've been reading a few of these papers in the last few days.

I'm curious about the chap that died.

Did he have any treatment other than apricot kernels?

How long was it between diagnosis and his death?


I spoke this afternoon with my friend who has been taking kernels and has been symptom free for 5 years. He certainly has a great deal of self belief.

The other thing that is very important after a TURBT with a diagnosis of bladder cancer is a follow up TURBT 2-6 weeks after the first one.

Bladder cancer is very often under-staged. The 2nd TURBT increases the chances that they got it all, and confirms the initial staging (or could wind up proving that it was under-staged).

Here is a very good article on T1G3. T1G3 Rule of Thirds

After reading the article, you will understand just how important the follow up TURBT is, especially in determining the best treatment path for T1G3.

I hope you find this information useful.

T1G3 is very treatable especially with BCG. While it is no picnic and can have serious side effects, the sucess rate speaks for itself. It is certainly not near as bad as chemo and radiation! This is one fight that you don't want to pass on!

DX 5/6/2008 TAG3 papillary tumor .5 CM in size. 2 TURBS followed by 6 instillations of BCG weekly with a second round of 6 after a 6 week wait.

Hi horace,

I'm in the same situation as you are. T1 G3 and new to this forum as a poster (have been reading for several weeks)
I think nature holds many keys to cures too, and I have altered my diet to include many of the fruits/vegetables believed to hold chemicals that are beneficial to people in our situation.

However, I do feel that conventional treatment is the smartest way to go at this point (BCG for me) with the dietary change serving as a way to boost my odds of success.

This is not a fight we can afford to lose. I highly recommend using every weapon at your disposal, especially those already proven to be effective.

All the best to you. My you be blessed with being cancer free soon!
