BAMA: I'm 61 and like you, first time really scared. I read some things and no matter how strong you think you are and I thought I was, I am on a type of medicine to keep my head straight. Three meds were tried, 2 failed and 1 did the trick. I can really get depressed easily and the med does help!!! Good luck and ask away, this forum is fantastic and Sara Anne is extraordinary!!! Jay

There is a LOT of information here on the Forum about BCG....In fact, I would bet that it is our "favorite" topic! For a start, go to the thread "Non-invasive...." You will find, at the top, several threads that cover this topic extensively which we have saved for people such as you, new to the topic, and wanting information. You can also use the "Search Forum" funtion at the top of this page.
If you have any questions after checking these out, ask away and we will try to answer them.
