First cysto after TURBT spot spied

Oops! My mind must have been on the up and coming spring/summer/fall temperatures here in the deep southwest when I stated, "...on the sixth installation my urologist gave to me 104 degree temperature...." My temperature didn't go beyond 102 degrees. Sorry. I must stress that my temperature spike lasted no more than a few hours.

Thank you for your replies and support. I was apprehensive about posting my condition, but you all proved my worries were groundless.

Until the next concern creeps into my world....

Any temperature above 100.5 maybe 101.0 call for an immediate contact with your URO when taking BCG. It sounds like an infection but, they should be notified. Even if it is a weekend!

DX 5/6/2008 TAG3 papillary tumor .5 CM in size. 2 TURBS followed by 6 instillations of BCG weekly with a second round of 6 after a 6 week wait.

In October 2014, I had a TURBT that presented two tumors (1 cm and 2 cm) with the diagnosis of CIS. Two weeks after my TURBT, I was placed on four weeks of Mitomycin followed by six weeks of BCG. I felt fine with the Mitomycin, but with the BCG it truly was a cumulative treatment. During the six treatments, I would experience the typical, urgency, nausea, malaise, and dysuria. But on the sixth installation my urologist gave to me 104 degree temperature, chills, and a partridge in a pear tree.....WOW!

Two weeks after the BCG treatments, I had my follow-up cysto where my urologist announced he spied a red spot on my bladder <GASP>. He insisted on a two month follow-up to observe any changes and recommend the next phase of my treatment.

Meanwhile, after this cysto, I started to feel a bit “off”. My symptoms – dysuria, dark, smelly urine, urgency and lower abdominal pain – peaked on Thursday one week after my cysto . But the following morning, I woke felling great! I contact me urologist's office regarding my symptoms, and they instructed me to come into the office for a “precautionary” visit. As always, they tested my urine and found some occult blood.

Any words?
