Joining The BC Club: Episode 4

7 years 2 weeks ago #40263 by rbmc
Hi Barb ........ Doug is referring to my 6th, and final "graduation" BCG treatment, described in Episode 4. Got it? I don't understand or know all about stents, but mine was EXTREMELY uncomfortable with multiple discomforts for the 2 weeks. It was a blessing to have it removed. Thanks for following my journey.

What is #6 that Dougg is talking about, I have only seen 4, you did a great job informing all of us about your journey, It is no picnic. Did I tell you that I have a kidney stent? It goes from my stoma to my kidney, I have it changed every 5 weeks. I don't mind, without it I would have lost my kidney as the ureter was blocked. Good luck with your journey.

Hi Doug ......... a few smiles on the journey are good. But no cake! I haven't seen any reference to a time frame for the effects of BCG to "wear off", specifically the frequency. I'll be out of the free pills tomorrow. Thanks for following the journey.

Hi Diesel ......... glad to hear someone else experienced the treat of the air pocket! A totally unexpected event. ABLCS will have to be the source for my 3 page e-book. Thanks.

I had to laugh out loud at treatment #6: Graduation! "Crazy doc even hummed the tune for the event." Good documentation and advice on the Vesicare. Thank you for sharing your experience.
