Hi Sue. My husband, who is also 78 was diagnosed several months ago with Stage 1 aggressive non- muscle invasive bladder cancer & underwent 6 weeks of BCG (no side effects). The doc told him to come back in 3 months to have a biopsy to see if it has returned. He is scheduled for his biopsy the middle of January. Prayers & best of luck to you & your husband- I will let u know how his biopsy results when we get it

Thankyou for your kind words. Happy your husband had no trouble with his gemcitabine treatment. Hope his three month follow up visit's results are perfect.

@texascitylady how is your husband doing? Thinking about you and @plugger as my husband is now at the start of BCG treatments (giving it a try one more time). I hope he can make it through the six treatments as he could not tolerate the gemcitabine (which apparently is not common according to his urologist) nor the BCG seven years ago. Dont want to think about the bladder removal option just yet.
If you feel like sharing, please let me know how your husband is. Hope you are keeping well.
