When should you start BCG treatment after TURBT?

Your bladder needs time to heal before you start the BCG. 5 weeks waiting is normal.

Not sure what the usual time gap is - Your urologist will want to give the bladder chance to heal before instilling bcg, but I am pretty sure that beginning treatment too early is not advisable.

I had a TURBT on May 21. Starting BCG on June 25. Is that OK? or should I start BCG earlier than June 25?
