I was diagnosed with high grade bladder cancer in 2022 at the age of 37. 2 turbo, 11 bcg treatment, currently no reoccurrence. 

Would love to find people in the same boat as me, maybe make some friends etc 

Thank you

    Best wishes to All,   rily.

  • Sassy Girl, that’s great news, well done.I am on 2 TURBT, and 6 BCG, fingers crossed.Quite a few people like us on here, so welcome!


  • Hi Sassy Girl, 

    Great to hear your treatments are going well and working for you. It's great to hear when things are going well for others.

    Also diagnosed in 2022 at the age of 51, grade 3 non muscle evasive BC.

    12 BCGs here, and my last biopsy beginning of March came back clear. Next biopsy due mid June and BCG instillations 13,14,15 due soon after.

    15 more BCGs to go all being well, but I'm now on 6 monthly intervals which is a relief. The biopsys are still at 3 Months, but must not grumble.

    Take care.

  • Hi Angela, So true cancer can be such a lonely journey even with close family around you, it really helps to chat with others who know what your going through. Take care of yourself. Love Lynn x

  • Hi Sassy Girl, 

    I was diagnosed with high grade bladder cancer at 45. I am now 9 BCG in and having a tula cystoscopy later today. I did feel pretty unusual being a relatively young woman - it definitely added to / was part of  the shock of the diagnosis. It is rotten luck at any age but at 37 seems particularly unfair. I am really pleased there is no reoccurrence.
