5th BCG treatment

Its 10:12 pm really stings when I void so I'm taking some pyridium, this is a pain reliver for the lower urinary tract! and more water, it does turn your urine bright orange and stains. but definetly works!

Had BCG number 5 today, 2hrs hours out drinking water to flush it out and voiding like crazy feels like I drink water and 5 minutes later it comes out! not painful but a nuisance. 6th treatment next week then 4 weeks later another TURBT, I'm praying they see nothing new in my bladder or prostate, but if they do I'll continue from there!

Lotech. Sounds like you are tolerating the BCG fairly well. I remember at this stage I tried to tell myself "it is downhill from here, 4 down 2 to do".

DX 5/6/2008 TAG3 papillary tumor .5 CM in size. 2 TURBS followed by 6 instillations of BCG weekly with a second round of 6 after a 6 week wait.
