BCG/Interferon

Dolphin,

I hope the BCG + Inf does the trick for you. Multiple sources recommend the use of the combination for repeat induction treatments. As usual, postings here described a wide range of reactions when comparing BCG to BCG + Inf. May your reactions be minor.

Best,
Jack

Had my third treatment and it was followed by some minor bleeding and fatigue. Headed for my 4th treatment this week, fatigue has somewhat followed me after the last treatment, so we'll see what this one brings. 2/3rd's is the way through.

Had BCG protocol starting in 2001 with 6 week follow ups in ‘02 and 03. Have had low grade tumors removed in 2012-‘17, a few times each year. Just started on BCG/Interferon two weeks ago, 4 more weeks to go and all well so far. Had a pretty bad headache the second treatment, first day and, with arthritis in my hip, some aching in that hip for three days. Outside of that have done well with the treatments. Have not experienced the more significant bleeding and bladder spasms that I had with straight BCG. My Dr. does not feel I’ll need successive treatments like I had had with previous BCG treatments.
