digestive problems

Thanks, Patricia, I did not realize that especially since my uro didn't think it was related. I began the problem after my BCG treatments were complete but it makes sense that it still could be the cause. I am going to follow through with the colonoscopy just for peace of mind but it is good to know that about BCG.

I am not on any antibiotics or new medicine although when I first went to my family doctor with the diarrhea problem, I was given a week of cipro. She thought I might have a bacteria infection but it did not help.

Did they put you on any antibiotic? One of the antibiotics, doxicycline, that they put my husband on created diarrhea.

Not sure if that helps especially since your urologist doesn't seem to think your BCG treatments and all are related.

Wish you the best of luck!

I was diagnosed with bladder cancer in January, received 12 BCG + interferon treatments, and had a recurrence this month with a second surgery last Thursday.

For the last couple of months I have had diarrhea everyday. Has anyone else experienced these problems with bladder cancer? I saw a gastro doctor last week and am scheduled for a colonoscopy in 2 weeks. My urologist doesn't think it is related.

Thanks,
Balihigh
