BCG treatment, female

1 year 3 weeks ago #58350 by sara.anne
For me it was no big deal. Lucky you are a lady....males tend to "splash.":lol: My procedure was that as soon as I was finished I poured a cup of bleach into the toilet bowl and let it sit 30 minutes before flushing. Often I had such urgency that I couldn't wait 30 minutes to go again....just went in the bowl with the bleach and waited another 30 minutes to flush. When my six hours were over, and I felt better, I just poured bleach into the bowl and cleaned with a brush.

BCG IS a live bacteria preparation, so caution is advisable. However, it has been genetically modified so that it is NOT a virulent variety. General cleanliness and washing of hands is what is needed, not "hazmat suits."

I would recommend buying a large bottle of the cheapest generic chlorine (liquid) bleach at the grocery store. You will run through a lot of it!

We are due our first BCG treatment on Thursday, Sept 26. We are concerned with the toilet clean up each time fluid is passed from the body.

Any helpful suggestions would be appreciated.
