Dr Lamm does recommend cutting the dose, however my Uro said, since I have not had any bad reactions, he has been using the full strength. So far, so good. If I do run into any problems down the road - he will cut back.

Nix, does your Doc use a less concentrated form of BCG on those maint. treatments? I though Dr. Lamm recommends a lower doseage for these vs the initial 6 treatments.

As you know already, everybody reacts differently. As for my Maintenance BCG, The reactions was a little more pronounced, but certainly bearable. I have had two maintenance so far, and three clear cystos - so hands down it is worth it - so far.........
Good Luck

4th one today. I am starting to hate Monday. I'd rather go back to bed and be lazy but i have to go there .

Just 2 more after this one. then he said i wait til sept. to do a look in the bladder.
if I have to have more of these bcg's does it get worse or stay about the same? I hope it goes the same since i been feeling pretty good mostly.

I hope you had a nice 4th of July weekend. I did and ate too much though.

bye till tomorrow hope you all are feling good.

Yes , soon done :) I am feeling good now, just a little tired still , but not tired enough to complain about it. Could even be the heat here. I don't do well in the hot weather.
i wonder if they will continue to be mild effects from that stuff. i am happy so far.
