BCG availability

6 months 3 weeks ago - 6 months 3 weeks ago #57435 by RJake1
Unfortunately I was told by my Dr office that all their BCG is spoken for and will be used for patients in the midst of their treatment program. There are four of us waiting to start a regimen of BCG but there is none. They are hopeful of getting some within the next couple of weeks. Until then its just sit, wait, hope, and pray (and drink 64 oz water/day). Not sure what else to do. Its a very uncomfortable position to be in.

Hubby’s treatment will stop on Tuesday after notification today that they will only be doing 15 treatments because of the shortage. Signed up for this board to figure out what is next.

I just read that there is a shortage of BCG. I have been clean for 2 1/2 years, and go on May 1st for my 6 month cysto. I have no bleeding or visible symptoms so I am optimistic about the check up, but I am a little spooked about this BCG news. What is everyone hearing about this?
