Hi Steve
I have had 23 treatments and like Jack, I had progressive response to BCG.
Do they do a urine test to check for infection before each BCG treatment? This is the protocol. Once in a while I had a low temp, but the spasms grew more aggressive and lasted longer. There are meds for some of the side effects.
I can't speak for the bleeding, that is one side effect I did not have. It is important to keep reporting your fever and bleeding to the Uro.
I agree with Jack, it is always good to have a second opinion.

Hi Steve

I have had 30 BCG treatments.

First of all the only treatment that ever hurt was my 29th, because a rookie nurse had trouble cathing me. It is also the only time I ever noticeably bled from a treatment.

My side effects from BCG were progressive. 1st 6 only burning for a few hours, next six burning last about a day. Then the side effects began to worsen with longer burning and spasms. The only time I had a fever or flu like symptoms was when I had UTI infections.

Have you spoke to your Uro about this?
Maybe it is time for another opinion?

I had six treatments from late january to early march. the first five were not bad, the sixth was awful. I had chills, fever and bled for about 12 hours. It also hurt to urinate for some time. I had the camera down the johnson two weeks ago and the DR thought we looked good. the urine test showed cancer cells a week later. now a repeat of three BCG's and I just had the first one tuesday. It hurt, I bled alot and the fever chills thing was there. Any info on bcg and it effects would be appreciated.
