Welcome to this site. You are among many cancer survivors who have gone through what you are experiencing.
I have a couple of questions.
What is the stage and grade of the bladder cancer tumors that were removed?
This information is available from your pathology reports.
What are the treatments that you are to begin, BCG or Chemo?
Once you supply us with this information, many survivors here can share their experiences and advice.
You have come to the right place.
All the best.

I am currently undergoing my third round of BCG. It has not been bad for me, just a little uncomfortable at times. Chills, nausia the day of treatment, tiredness. By the next day I am usually back to normal.
Wishing you the best. Let us know your grade when you get the info.
Steve, I'm so glad you found this site. There are a whole lot of us here ready to answer questions, support you and cheer you on. And plenty of arms available to help you get a solid grip on this thing we all have. Good luck with your first BCG treatment. I've been there too.
