I was fortunate to catch my Bladder Cancer early. I had a different back pain than I was used to. After an ultra sound with "no issues", my accupuncturist suggested I go back and ask the doctor for more tests. My doctor sent me for a CT scan which revealled a tumour in the bladder. After my initial cystoscopy the urologist discovered two tumours which were non-invasive and removed in March of 2014. I was fortunate to have a very issues free recovery. I have had 18 BCG treatments since. (as of April 6th 2016). I have now been moved to six month check ups from three months since my surgery. I am a member of the Bladder Cancncer Canada Board and executive committee, with responsibilities as National Walk Lead for our September 25th Walk in Canada. Nice to meet you ! @FergDevins
