A -- WOMAN 63 YEARS OLD
B.- CANCER IN BLADDER
-- TRANSURETHRAL RESECTION area of resection of 3 or 4 sq.cm. tumor was totally removed / not arrived to the muscles.
C - RESUME OF HISTOPATHOLOGIC EXAMINATION:
-- (bladder)carcinoma urothelial cells high grade pappilary not invasive.
-- (tumor) several fragments/pieces of irregular tissue, "slightly grainy", firm and elastic color clear/brown, being the measure of the entirety/set 50x36x14mm.
D --TREATMENT/BCG DETAILS: instillation in the bladder for three weeks with a solution of 80 mg of BCG weekly during 45/60 minutes. After that, due to strong reactions(blood and colics)only used BCG on the 5th week ( two weeks interval) with only 40 mg ( treatment interrupted due to colics etc...)
FINAL WOULD THANKS FOR IDEAS/ORIENTATION/EXPERIENCES AND MODERN KNOWLEDGE, specially regarding:
BASIC QUESTION : Is it normal that 30 days after the final of BCG treatment there are still reasonable problems of blood in urine and colics???
THANKS FOR OTHER INFORMATIONS - Is it correct that in her case the cancer do not goes to other organs ( methastesis ) and, normally, only attacks/goes inside the bladder?; with adequate bladder treatment and follow-up we do have a big possibility of "no methastesis"?.
- Are there any help/remedies or unnoficial trial remedies to improve her immunity, to help? Please: informations about possible future treatment and suggestion of period/examinations.
- we are treating the problem with a good urologist; is it very important to contact oncologists to see/hear other possible ideas?
