My brother in law had it, and he under went 3 treatments, and it took care of it. John must have a more advanced, or aggressive type. Sure hope they caught it in time.

Just did some research... fascinating stuff.  85% is the chance of the cancer returning if you do nothing else.  If you get 6 follow-up BCG treatments (a liquid placed in your bladder via a catheter that promotes your body to heal itself), one treatment per week, the survival rate is 95.4% over 5 years.   I am sure John's doctors have discussed this immunotherapy with him if his cancer was not aggressive or invading the bladder walls.  John's a better golfer than a doctor.  Wishing you the best, John.


Bacillus Calmette–Guerin (BCG) treatment can help prevent cancer from returning following surgery for early-stage bladder cancer...

This is something we all can agree.   Cancer sucks.   Here's hoping he's able to fight it successfully.  

Cancer sucks for sure. Get well Mr Daly.

    • Thanks! I can go. We all put in for our vacations at the beginning of the year (healthcare vacation days can be annoying). I can def get the time off. Just need to know the dates by like February, no hurry on them.
    • MEH. I haven't watched TGC other than golf coverage for decades.
    • I know enough to be dangerously wrong, but also wise enough to know when great advice is given, such as @iacas has given above.  When I am in my practice zone, which is my backyard, I am focusing on one area of my swing - is it impact, is it backswing, is the downswing - what do I want to accomplish/see today.  Great thing is some days I see the mountains move, other days I can't hit my way clear out of a very wet paper sack, but I press  on. Often when doing work at the desk, I am turning my body - working through the torso motions.  My stretches in the say are to replicate what happens in a swing.  Flipping my wrists - I can show you video from about 2 yrs ago and some more recent.  I have gotten better at ball striking, not flipping wrists, but using the the KISS principle - Keep It Simple Son. One part at a time - Erik gave a great reference many moons ago when he spoke of how a classically trained violinist learns a piece (you can insert any instrument here).  At first is seems like disconnected, dissonant notes, yet as they accomplish a piece, they move forward little by little. Then at the end of the day, when it is time to play the notes are fluid and flawless.  This process is about learning it note by note - the YouTube guru's all have a fast cure - the only good one is hard work on A SINGULAR KEY POINT till it is automatic.  Muscle memory is a fantastic thing - it makes things automatic.  Please pardon the ramblings of an old man who had a good day on the course!
    • Golf: $600-900 depending on what courses we decide to play.   Stay is free, no cost for any of the nights at the lake house.   Everything else is kind of unknown at this time.  Am I missing anything? I'd provide a good portion of the food and drinks for the meals at the lake, but we may want to go out a couple nights for dinner, and I am no cook. We do have a grill and a full Kitchen at the Lake that we could use.   Btw, I'd recommend anyone who would be flying in to go through Minneapolis. It's only about 2 hours to the lake vs 3 from Milwaukee.    
    • Day 70 spent an hour on the range chipping/putting and getting some video of my full swing. I’ll get it up either tonight or tomorrow.
