all i can tell you is, I had six rounds of BCG, and although it didn't take care of the stage 2 cancer that i had (an operation did) i didn't experience any 'burns'... seems to me that the first thing you might do is get a second opinion... i wish you and your dad all the best... mark

My Dad has bladder cancer, he caught it early, I'm guessing from what I've read a stage 0. He has one treatment of BCG, things look good. He goes for another round of treatment, 6 doses of BCG. After the last treatment he starts passing urine every 20 minutes. Goes in for a check up and the top of the bladder appears to have been burned by the BCG. He meets with the doctor next week to talk about what to do next. The doctor has recommended removing the bladder.
Does anyone have any links about damaged bladder from the BCG? Has anyone been through this that could share some insight?
I do not know if he had an overdose or not.
