Had my first BCG treatment Wed 11/15. A lot better than I had feared. So far, no side effects or reactions. I have read somewhere that the reactions might be cumulative over the 6 weeks. Has anybody had or know of such?

Just had surgery follow-up visit with uro. Going to start BCG treatments next Wed 11/15. That's only 2 weeks since surgery. Seems like most of you started a bit later after TUR. Guess we'll see how this goes. Not looking forward to it, but needed. Will keep you posted. Thanks for the thoughts.

Hi Tommy,

Glad your surgery went well. My husband started BCG about 5 weeks after his surgery. The urologist said the bladder needed time to heal before they started with the treatment. He's doing well as I'm sure you will too.

Surgery went fine Tuesday 10/31. Tumor was golf ball in size. Ta with no muscle invasion. Great news for me. Nx and Mx. Follow up uro appt Thurs 11/9. I'm guessing BCG treatments will start soon. Thanks for the support, it helps to know others have been there. Will let you know what uro has to say.
