I will echo what others have suggested - give it a try!
For me, I cut back on alcholic beverages because I didn't want there to be a chance that it would thin my blood to the point that it may develop complications with bleeding. This was simply due to the fact that my urologist kept reiterating that it was normal to see blood (brown or red) during urination while undergoing BCG. This said, I didn't have any signs of bleeding, and was probably being overly cautious.
My 6th treatment was right before Christmas, so with New Years Eve right around the corner, I welcomed the new year with several glasses of champagne and welcomed the tears of joy and apprehension that surfaced because of it.
I wish you and everyone here a Happy and CANCER-FREE New Year!
Hi folks. Happy new year to everyone. Catching up on last week and I completed #4 BCG with no issues. Held it for 2 hours while rotating every 15-20 minutes with some lite dancing the last 30 to hold it. Lol. Had the typical urgency issues while drinking a ton of water the first 24 hours but only minor burning. #5 this upcoming Wednesday and almost there.
Quick question, although I have done a great job avoiding any bladder irritant over the past several months, carbonated, citrus, etc I was wondering about lite alcohol usage during BCG. Was looking to have a glass or two of wine. Would love a beer too but curious to anyone's thoughts or experience. In the past, before BCG, I would have two or three a week with no effects to my bladder.
