How are you doing now ? My dad is starting his BCG after his second turbt. I know this is posted 2 years ago but wishing you the best of luck!
John Shires (10 месяцев назад)
I've just been diagnosed with BC and recently had a TURBT. Many thanks for the video. Inspiring and will help me make decisions if BCG is an optional extra at any time . Many thanks and good luck with your treatment

With the grace of Almighty great Allah my lab reports came and It’s benign tumor I’m very happy
ikram khan (1 год назад)
Your video gave me courage today I had my First TURB it’s hurt too much they remove 13mm soft tissue tumor from my bladder and now I’m awaiting for lab reports I’m quite nervous 😟 any suggestions?

ikram khan has your doctor prescribed BCG?
ikram khan (1 год назад)
Peter Connors thank you very much for you kind reply, BCG is the last treatment or what ? And how many sessions they usually do kindly let me know the cost as well as and my day off from my office
Peter Connors (1 год назад)
ikram khan so you had your first cystoscope ? The first one is the worst. They get easier as you get used to breathing at the right time as I show in the video. Usually the next step is getting BCG like I did. Read as much as you can, research it like crazy. I'll be here for anything you need, just ask. If you have the means, get a genealogy test. To see if you carry Lynch Syndrome. It can help to know your steps forward. DO NOT BE SCARED. Be confident. It's a fight for a reason.

I just started my treatment and i like that you took the time to share the actual experience, im going in for my second treatment today actually hence me watching and looking up videos, their are others but none as personal and direct, so again i want to thank you for being brave and sharing a personal, intimate, emotional, scary moment in your life so others like myself can get a better understanding that im not the only one who is scared or experiencing uncomfortable reactions to it, makes me feel a little less alone despite the support i have around me, its hard going in alone and trying to share as a man how uneasy and discomforting it actually is. Thanks again, and goodluck to you, i wish you all the best.

I went to the er today I was peeing brown and my back was hurting. They did a ct I have a 11mm mass seeing a urologist tomorrow. I'm 52 had cancer 21 years in my small intestine any advice? Is 11mm large mass?
Peter Connors (1 год назад)
Manufanatic 99 how are you doing?
Peter Connors (1 год назад)
Manufanatic 99 that's almost my story. Mine was 8 mm. My mass was closer to my kidney. But over that year I grew more and more in my bladder. Only BCG stopped it. After two other chemos I had no other choice. Good luck. A prayer your way. If I can help just lean on me.

I'm female and I was 37 in 2011 when they first found out I had non-invasive, low grade BC that covered 60% of my bladder. I have had 6 TURBTs since and have felt like I've had a severe UTI since they used Mito chemo on me during #3, #4, and #5 surgeries. Severe pain all the time, no pain meds work for me for some reason. I've been sent to the Mayo Clinic for this last #6 surgery and had it two weeks ago. The doctor is already talking about removing my bladder because it's so scared up and had greatly reduced my quality of life. No one has ever mentioned to me about drinking more water or anything else natural that I should do to help prevent it from coming back. They just keep doing the camera every three months and I get TURBTS almost every year.  I really hope BCG works for you and that you never have to worry about BC again! So far, they haven't found anything that works for me.

AnnaBelle Lee how are you?
Peter Connors (1 год назад)
AnnaBelle Lee bCG only worked. Water like mad and no sugar and carbs in my diet. That's all. I kinda did this myself. I trusted no one.
Elizabeth Cochran (1 год назад)
Such an awesome thing you've done here! I am in between cycles but am almost done! Two more rounds of treatments and life time of checkups but so far so good. Congrats on the remission. 😊
Elizabeth Cochran (1 год назад)
I am good thanks! I go in for an MRI and checkup in December. Of all is well I do my next round of BCG. I am thankful it isn't as daunting as full IV chemo.
Peter Connors (1 год назад)
Elizabeth Cochran how are you?

Ricki Lynn Wolfe (1 год назад)
Thank you Peter for the video it was very informative.My husband Steven is on his 11th bladder and kidney cancer. ,now the doctor wants to do the bcg I think the doctor should have done it along time ago and not waited this long due to everything I read said doing it early stage of cancer is better chances ! I begged my husband to do the bcg now but after hearing it hurts I feel so bad asking him to do this !.Does it hurt everyone who has it done ? Did you have pain at home in the groin and get sick ?He just had his 11th bladder and kidney surgery two weeks ago and there gonna do the bcg in two more weeks .I pray it does not hurt him , God bless you my friend you are in my prayers:) thanks again Mrs.Ricki Wolfe
Gege Xu (1 год назад)
Thank you so much for sharing. My aunt just finished her first surgery, and it turned out very successful. However, she is so worried about the chemo therapy. I am collecting as much information as I can about the BCG treatment she is going to use. Would you mind letting me know what brand that you had used and where was it manufactured? Thank you very much.
Gege Xu (1 год назад)
You are the best! Thank you sooooooo much!
Peter Connors (1 год назад)
BenjiDiDiFoxieGeGe X I can do some research what kind Sloan Kettering in NYC uses. I was just there for my one year check up and I'm still clear!! Please give me a few days to find out.
drumr72 (2 года назад)
Peter! I am four years out as of today, had the dreaded cysto am in great shape according to my brilliant Urologist. I used cannabis as well, this kept me at stage zero A. Big Pharma doesn't want people to know this. RSO oil is amazing stuff. Read up on it people!
Peter Connors (1 год назад)
drumr72 how are u doing??
Badmon Vegeta (1 год назад)
How often and how much RSO should you consume?
Peter Connors (2 года назад)
drumr72 four years!! Sweet. Congrats. You had BCG? We all know oils work, that's how my friends and I are alive, but thank god for BCG or I'd be gone.
Soviet Mapping (2 года назад)

Mahep Martinez Hernández (2 года назад)
Good to know you are in remission. Where did you do this BCG vaccine? Do you know if it worked with anyone with stage IV melanoma? I wish you all the best and many years in good health!
Peter Connors (1 год назад)
Mahep Martinez Hernández please tell me how you are
Mahep Martinez Hernández (2 года назад)
Thank you so much for answering. I wish you much luck and hope in December you will have the best results!!
Peter Connors (2 года назад)
I went to Sloan Kettering in NYC. My friend was stage IV and sadly, it didn't work without chemo too. His doctors never had a clear plan. It was frustrating to watch. Thank you for your kind words!! My next big test is December, I have Lynch Syndrome, big December coming!!!

Peter Connors (2 года назад)
If you need any advice as to what you will expect over the coming weeks, just ask. Fatigue is normal and sleep will start to be difficult after the third treatment. Tell him the feeling is amazing out the other side of treatment. Cheers!!

I won't kid around here ... I'm crying because next week after two bladder cancer surgeries (I'm told that the tumor is all gone now) I will start a si week BCG course. I HATE having cystoscopys, and a couple of weeks ago (following surgery #2) he went in to remove the two stents that he had placed in my L/R ureters. I wonder if a person ever stops feeling that they are "walking on eggs" or "waiting for the other shoe to drop". So thankful that my tumor was non-invasive and low grade ... yet, being a cancer survivor yourself, I'm sure you know what I'm talking about. I HATE what is coming in those six weeks of treatment, but I know that research says this is one good insurance against recurrence. Best wishes to you.!! I'm tired of fighting, but we can't give up!!
Peter Connors (1 год назад)
LifterWill how are you doing?
LifterWill (2 года назад)
Oh man, Peter .. when I saw that smaller catheter, I was somewhat relieved ... though I am expecting some pain from the BGC itself. I am deeply sorry for the uncertainty with which you live, but I certainly understand it. That cystoscopy camera AND the regular catheter (which I have only had inserted while I was under anesthesia during surgery) are ... unforgettable. The first time I had the catheter removed following surgery one .. I swear I thought that the nurse had damaged me to the point of needing another surgery or something. Fortunately that pain was momentary. The second time, the nurse told me to "Take a deep breath" .. and it was removed without my hardly knowing. So glad that we have some sort of "support" so that we can talk about these matters and know that what we are experiencing isn't something that we are walking through alone!! Best to you regarding the Lynch Syndrome!
Peter Connors (2 года назад)
After multiple rounds of two kinds of chemo and 19 surgeries, bcg is the only thing that worked. I have Lynch Syndrome so I'm walking on more than egg shells but I live I different life knowing the shoe will drop. Sooooo happy that it sounds like you're doing better. The little catheter they use during BCG is nothing compared to the cystoscopy camera!! Go get em!!

I had my 9th BCG treatment last Wednesday. It's Sunday and feeling pain through my urethra every few minutes. I decided to take a painkiller an hour ago. It's barely touching the pain. I know why it's called "fighting cancer".
Peter Connors (1 год назад)
Randy Ady how are you doing?
Randy Ady (2 года назад)
it took a long time for my bladder to heal but it finally feels a lot beter.
Peter Connors (2 года назад)
Painkillers never seem to touch this kind of pain. When I drank water like crazy was the only time I felt better. I took Azo for the worst days. It always helped. I hope the treatments do the job.
Peter Connors (2 года назад)
I just found out I'm cancer free!!! BCG worked! This is longest I've ever been in remission. God bless anyone that watches my video. Stay strong, stay positive. With a controlled low sugar, low carb diet, bladder cancer is very beatable. The BCG was the little kick I needed to get my body to beat what was left.
HS (3 месяца назад)
Congratulation sir. I hope you are still cancer free:)My dad is going to have his second treatment today
Lucia Giannattasio (1 год назад)

Lucia Giannattasio (1 год назад)
Peter Connors Hi Peter! tomorrow will know how is going all, my dad will go to explorative surgery to know if is working, i will let you know how it works, hoppe God will make him better! how are you?!
whats the exact name of the numbing thing they give you ??
Peter Connors (2 года назад)
I'm here if you need anything :-)
does comments help .. and that we are not alone
Peter Connors (2 года назад)
+Ensenada Tour Guide I totally understand, trust me. I've had those days when it will hurt for four days after. I've had a catheter put in over 38 times now, some days I feel nothing. It's seems to be about breathing. If you don't fight it on the way in, it gets better. I think it's that sphincter muscle it passes. If you fight that, you're in for a long ride. I hope the video helped somewhat.
jon levesque sr (2 года назад)
yes, thanks you and the doctor and the camera person.i start my bcg 4/22/16
Peter Connors (1 год назад)
jon levesque sr I remember those days!!! Glad things look good!! God bless
jon levesque sr (1 год назад)
3 operations...and 3 treatment sessions of varying time and he said it looked good after this last operation...so we wait 3 months for another look....i think i was good before this last operation...i was listening to mike adams about how we all have micro tumors but they are not usually cancerous...after my last 2 operations i get the "good news...the tumors weren't cancerous" word in the visit after the operation....so in other words... they were for nothing(the operations)
Peter Connors (1 год назад)
jon levesque sr how are you?
Peter Connors (2 года назад)
+jon levesque sr I did chemo twice and it didn't work. I lost my kidney and had over 20 surgeries to remove tumors. BCG is the only thing that worked. I have Lynch Syndrome so I'm happy that this therapy can beat this thing!! I eat a no sugar and no carb diet now and I started a self defense class for fitness and I'm still cancer free. Good luck!
N Muller (2 года назад)
thanks- my hubby starts BCG next week.
Peter Connors (2 года назад)
If you have any questions, please ask. I'm cancer free now after a 5 year battle!! I'm praying for you guys.
Randy Ady (2 года назад)

My fiancée is currently undergoing BCG treatments at Stanford Medical Center. Like you, she had a nephrectomy prior to her bladder cancer tumors and their removal. I really appreciate the video. I want her to keep fighting just like you. You will kick cancer's ass!!! God Bless.
