USAF GULF WAR VET

Last updated: January 2022

I was a healthy 57-year-old man very active Golf, Workout five days a week non-smoker. Then one November day I had blood coming out of my urine with chunks of blood so I learned that day - that I have bladder cancer.

Let's be real treatment isn't easy

So I did a couple TURBT‘s.
Very painful not a lot of fun.

BCG fears and uncertainty

Thankfully it was nonmuscle invasive however, I’m facing the year-long BCG treatments. I really don’t feel like going through all that pain and discomfort if it’s not a silver bullet that’s gonna knock the cancer out.

Is it worth it?

If it’s gonna keep coming back anyway why go through all that pain. That's my story.
Anyone survive without BCG??
