For most, BCG effects are cumulative. Meaning they get more pronounced. Urgency, fatigue, burning while urinating and frequency are common. I told myself that if that is the case, it is still better than systemic chemo that other cancer people have. All doable but no fun.

DX 5/6/2008 TAG3 papillary tumor .5 CM in size. 2 TURBS followed by 6 instillations of BCG weekly with a second round of 6 after a 6 week wait.

Lisa,

I wanted t to let you know your posts are being seen BUT.... check the date time stamps on the threads that you are responding to (upper right-hand side of the posts). Some are 3-10 years old, and those people probably have gone on to running the rest of their lives or no longer use this forum. As you go on to your journey, go ahead and start your own thread and questions. There should be someone lurking with answers.

Where are you getting BCG treatments. We were told it wasn’t available in our area.
