My first BCG experience with a neophyte led to an E. Coli infection (two nights in the ER and 14 days of daily antibiotics by IV) before treatment continued.
I found a PA with a heart who administered the balance of the treatments, layered me with betadine, gel, Valium and I regularly provided her a gift card to show my appreciation to make sure she stayed with me for each treatment. An Angel! Having a single provider, consistently applying treatment was the BEST money I ever spent.
In my first cystoscopy the medical assistant (nurse?) that injected the anesthetic gel was rude and apparently damaged the tip of my urethra. As a result of this I was for more than 3 weeks having pain on urination. Anybody else have similar experience? I had more cystos after and the gel was injected slowly without problems.
