For Pain?

8 years 8 months ago #30967 by Patricia
Bacille Calmette-Guérin (BCG) in intravesical instillations is the reference treatment for urothelial carcinoma with a high risk of progression. Compliance with this treatment is altered by its potentially serious locoregional or general side effects. Prevention of these complications requires implementing rules of good practice for the instillations. The undesirable side effects should be recognized early. Their treatment should be rapid and adapted to the patient. The results of the French randomized, placebo-controlled ITB01 study showed that the class II side effects of BCG were significantly reduced by administration of ofloxacin after each instillation of BCG. The number of class III side effects requiring antitubercular treatment was also reduced in the patients in this study who had received ofloxacin.
Try this one out on your uro.
And Bill, Jr. I can't figure out why you're being so mis-managed........Pat

:woohoo: OH, Boy! BCG-treatments. I had 9, and thought I would die after each (PAIN, PAIN & bleeding). Pain was so bad after #9 I was on antibiotics for 5-mo, with n0 relief.

Dr at UVA told me to not take any more BCG-treatments, that to do so I would only be asking for trouble. However, my new Uro says that at my next 90-day Cysto, he wants to discuss starting BCG again.

I have had reccurent prostate-PAIn ever since BCG #9. NO more BCG for me!!!!!! :S :woohoo:

My Uro contacted Dr. Lamn when I was having some problems and he recommended 1/3 dose. I had my last two treatments at the level. According to Dr. Lamn, the success rate for lower dose is not compromised. He also recommended that the treatment dose be reduced from 6 to 3. It seems that there no benefit after 3 doses. I'm sure Patricia or someone else has the link to Dr.Lamn site where he talks about it. Somehow I lost the link. Hang in there, the benefits of completing the treatments in my case was well worth it. I finally got a clean biopsy report. :cheer: :cheer: Chuck :cheer:

The nurse said she'd get the dosage diluted for this week's treatment - yes!!!! I cannot picture getting on a plane six 7 hours later after peeing out pieces of my bladder all afternoon...hopefully, it will only be half as bad.
