Gemcitabine vs BCG

Can someone tell me why some doctors use Gemcitabine and some use the BCG. I am taking the Gemcitabine, but I notice that more people talk about their doctor using the BCG.

    1. I had bcg treatments kept getting reacurrences tried gemcitabine also failed had RC in November going well now Cance free

      1. Thanks for sharing your experience, @shakey. So glad to hear you're cancer-free since having your RC. ~Liz, Moderator

      2. Shakey - Happy to hear that you are doing well. Please make sure to keep vigilant with post RC testing as that is very important. Great news for you, Linda ( moderator, BladderCancer.net team member)
