Have a question

Anita,

Have had 2 now. Experiencing nausea and fatigue, but I understand that's normal. Starting to have a little burning when I go, hope it won't get any worse.

You are so sweet to ask. Thanks!!

Cindy

Cindy B,

How did your first BCG go? Best wishes on your treatments.

I agree - you should not take any drug "just in case". Not a bad idea to have anti-bladder spasm drug on hand , in case you need it, but unless the side effects are very bad, I find that the best way to avoid uncomfortable side effects is by drinking plenty of wáter.

I never took anything for the BCG....But taking it now sort of sounds to me like taking aspirin the day before you get a headache!! You may not need it, at least at first

Just a thought

I'm starting my BCG treatments tomorrow and I was wondering, will it hurt if I start taking Pyridium today to kind of get ahead of the side effects? Will it interfere with the BCG treatment doing it's job?

I know this is probably a dumb question, I'm just trying to be proactive with the burning side effects.

Appreciate any advice.

Cindy
