Okay its been about 6 hrs. I've used the potty a bunch of times, due I'm sure to the water I've been pounding! Nurse said the sooner you wash out your bladder the less rhe side effects. Ive got 1/4 of a gallon of water left. Im taking a break and drank a glass of gingerale. I'm not feeling hungry but I ate a small chicken salad. Funny did I mention I'm a type 2 diabetic. I've lost 20lbs from the last few months I think due to operations and medications. My primary said my diabetes is under control more so now then before. I try to eat what is healthy to assist my body even though I'm not hungry. Wife makes sure I eat something on the regular which us good. I'M glad I have her by my side makes all this easier to get through!

Hello

I just started BCG today. It stung a little when the catheter passed my prostate most likely due to my last turbt there.

The insertion of the BCG is painless so far I'm at the 1 hr mark a little stinging And im am starting to want to pee but lying on my back and writing this helps.
