BCG Maintenance Yes or No?

12 years 6 months ago #5405 by wendy
Hi,

Welcome to the club (nobody wants to be in).

Experts have recently published that no, side effects of BCG are not cumulative and do not get worse with time. Funny, that. I've noticed people complaining that they do seem to get worse with more treatments, especially women. That's after about 9 years of listening to bladder cancer survivors talk about their stuff.

Prove me wrong and the experts right, and I will be very happy for you!

Best,
Wendy

I've only just begun.
Its 4 weeks after surgery for the first treatment. 5 more to go (for now).
My Dr. is a firm believer and the data I've seen leads me to believe
there's more good in it than potential harm.
My reaction to the treatment was mild; elevated temp for a few hours.
I am curious about the "cumulative" effects?
Do reactions get worse over time?
