Hi Sean T, I started my first BCG treatment today. I have the same issues with urgency and control at times. Fortunately I haven't had those issues for several weeks. I started taking Oxybutynin ER 10mg which is a generic for Ditropan XL. Hopefully this medication is keeping the urgency in check.

I am heading into my third round of BCG in a week or so. The only issue I have with BCG is I have urgency and little control of urination for a few days and then in a week or so after the last one I'm back to normal.
I've also had blue light. They did it during the same procedure as a TURBT so I was knocked out.
08/16/16 - TURBT - 1 tumor, T1HG, 7.5 cm x 7.5 cm x 1.8 cm, non-invasive papillary.
BCG treatments (15 rounds total - last March, 2018). As of latest cysto, Dec 10, 2019 - cancer free!
I'm not sure if a "Blue Light" procedure is like a cystoscopy or something like a TURBT. Sometimes it's difficult for me to delineate between all of these terms. But true the ultimate goal is remission.
You can see from the various posts that the side effects varied as BCG Treatments progress. No matter what, hope the treatment will get us to what we hope for...
I have not heard from my doctor on next step but it normally would be a scope after 1 month or 2.
