Had my Cysto today and still no cancer (23-mo clear), even going to every 4-mo schedule. He has ordered a CT scan, this coming Monday, to be sure all is clear elsewhere!

Prostate: Long standing BPH, which will require the "old roto rutter" w/in the next 12-mo.

Could be worse!

Thanks all!

Hi Bill... Sounds like you've had a rough two years but the upside is that you have remained cancer free. I hope your cysto goes well and your uro can find something that brings you relief from the pain.

Best wishes... Catherine

Hi, folks, I hope all is well with with you!

1st, at 2-yrs I am so far cancer-free ("09" T1 Hi-grade superficial). Had 9-BCG's, then had to stop due to unbearable pain & heavy bleeding. Two attempts later at 10% dose was aborted as everytime they Cathed me, I bleed from the Cath. If there is bleeding at Cath, BCG cannot be given. So Uro has given up on BCG treatment!

Prostate pain during the 4th - 9th BCG got pretty bad, so I was on Antibiotics for 6-mo with little change. The Prostate calmed down for about 4-mo, now the pain/ache has returned big time. It's been about 9+ months since the last BCG!

At the last Cysto (every 90-days) the Uro said my prostate was now pushing into my bladder. Prostate meds and I do not get along, as I have serious side-affects. PSA has risen from <1 to 2.9 over 2-yrs, but this could come from BPH, who knows.

This Wednesday I have the Ole 90-Cysto.

I am also going to be scheduled for Colonoscopy, just to rule other possibilities out :woohoo:
