Beginning BCG

4 years 2 months ago #50383 by jeffrx
Congrats on the 6 treatments. Glad to hear you are feeling OK. Do you have another cystoscopy soon to check it out?

Also, how is the actual administration of BCG? Is it painful in any way getting the catheter and the medication? I'm really not looking forward to constantly getting tubes shoved through my penis to be honest...

6th treatment today! when I void feels like tabasco sauce and razor blades, but Doc thinks I might have a UTI, will know in two days. I'm feeling positive will see in 4 weeks if the BCG had a good effect on my BC! I'm drinking water like a fish and pyridium helps. But this is Do-able!

I would say so. I definitely didn't see this coming. It looks like we're in for long-term relationships with our urologists.
