Pensive. Diagnosed with 2 tumors, had the TURBT a week also, still waiting for the call from the MD with the news. Been reading ALL that I can about what can and might be, possible future treatments options, etc. Hoping to find out soon.

@Gina, I’m glad you got some clarity from your urologist about administering BCG in different countries! That is so interesting. You shared some great tips for the event of a leak on the way home. Having incontinence pants on hand is always a good idea. Thank you for sharing that here! Wishing you a pleasant weekend. -Sarah (BladderCancer.net Team Member)

Hi Gina!

Thanks for sharing your experience with seeing a naturopath. Getting those second opinions from your naturopath friends must have helped you feel more confident in your regimen. Avoiding sugar is tough, especially when you have a sweet tooth. I hope to hear updates of how you are.

Take care,

@fionay68, I’m glad to hear that Mac’s writing has been encouraging and affirming for you. You are certainly allowed to be ill, after all you’ve been through so much! It can be difficult to step away from work, though that’s good you did it if you were feeling exhausted. We hear of fatigue very often here. I’m sharing with you an article about it:…
