I will know more about my treatment plan next week when I go to Johns Hopkins for a second opinion. Thus far I’ve had 6 weeks of a chemo wash from a local doctor. Hopkins thinks that could have had no effect on the cancer.

Just finished 6 weeks of Chemo Wash…..went to Johns Hopkins for second opinion……they said BCG probably will have little or no effect on the bladder cancer….going back to JH in two weeks. They will do an inside look to see what’s going on.

Mary….I’m into a weekly bladder chemo wash or Bacillus calmette-guerin (BCG) therapy. My GP has now recommended that I get a second opinion from John Hopkins, which is close, I live in Annapolis, Maryland. My only problem now is fatigue. I do not have any pain.

This morning’s Washington Post (April 26, 2016) has an extensive story on why getting a primary or second opinion from a prominent medical institution, such as Mayo Clinic or Johns Hopkins, is very important.

If you’re interested I’ll keep you advised as to my progress.
