"Incomplete treatment"

About: Lincoln County Hospital / Oncology

(as a service user),

My BCG instillation treatment for Bladder cancer stopped after one year. Missed my 6 month BCG in April due to Covid lockdown. Waited 4 months before asking to restart after cystoscopy. I attribute my recovery to the BCG treatment. I feel that the policy decision to discontinue treatment after one year is high risk. It is like not finishing your antibiotics. Meanwhile the anxiety of incomplete cancer treatment continues.

Dear Sparty

Thank you for taking the time to share your story with us at clearly a very difficult time for you. We would suggest that you contact your GP in the first instance so you can discuss your concerns regarding why your treatment was discontinued.

Regards

Sharon
