Your bladder is going to be a little bit "irritated" after the BCG treatments, so I would hold off hot chili peppers for a couple of days.
As I have said before (and the old timers here are probably tired of hearing it) the time when we should have been cognizant of what we were eating (if indeed it has an effect) would have been about 20-30 years ago, when whatever damage to our DNA was being done. That said, it never hurts to eat, in general, a healthy diet with the requisite fiber, vitamins, and minerals.

I am newly diagnosed and will be starting BCG the 22nd of this month. I had my first TURBT in Sept. and my second TURBT in October. Two tumors, my pathology report said HIGH GRADE UROTHELIAL CARCINOMA, TUMOR INVADES INTO LAMINA PROPRIA/SUBMUCOSAL TISSUE. NO INVASION OF MUSCULARIS PROPRIA. So I believe I am a T1 HIGH GRADE. Second pathology report came back clean of cancer cell being present.
After reading about the side effects of BCG on this site, I was curious if there is any special diet that would help offset the side effects of the BCG, and improve the chances of the cancer not returning.
