Bladder Spasms

1 week 5 days ago - 1 week 5 days ago #58698 by Alan
I was one of the lucky ones. Yes, some side effects but not bad spasms but, all in all tolerable. I did try to drown myself with water to hasten the expulsion of this BCG junk. On the second round it did take a day or two to get back closer to normal.

DX 5/6/2008 TAG3 papillary tumor .5 CM in size. 2 TURBS followed by 6 instillations of BCG weekly with a second round of 6 after a 6 week wait.

The spasms are terrible. For me, heating pad help some, and sounds strange, but green tea
Ice tea help.
Keep trying all things and find what works for you

I have begun my second round of BCG treatment. I tolerated the initiation phase pretty well, installations 5 and 6 were hell with respect to the spasms.

Today was my second installation for round two, so I only have next week until my break.

The oxybutinin is NOT helping at all :(

Does anyone have some suggestions to calm the severe bladder spasms

I don't want to drop out of the treatment (I am involved in a research study of the TICE versus TOKYO strains).

I have tried sitting in my bathtub full of hot water (last week) and a heating pad (this week).

I look forward to hearing back from some of you more experienced members.

Thanks
