Yes, Donna, Dieseldoc is right. Please do discuss this with your doctor.

Hi Donna, I haven't been on here for along time. Let you're Doctor know about this, and if it gets to be to much he or she can reduce the dose. That usually helps!!

First treatment was mitomycin C immediately after TURBT2. The internet says that one's body can systemically absorb mitomycin when open wounds are present. I did have some side effects of bad taste, fatigue, nausea and decreased appetite. They lasted about 3 weeks.

Week 6 after TURBT2 was my first BCG intravesication treatment. I did fine until bedtime when I developed chills all night, but no fever. The following day felt pretty good. That night, though, I had the worst joint pains. I never knew the heels of one's feet could hurt like mine did. The pain was everywhere. Temperature up only 1 degree. I guess we know then that my immune system has kicked in. I do have fibromyalgia and dystonia. I knew this would be painful for me so am expecting pain, but if don't get much will be ecstatic.
