BCG Treatment

5 months 6 days ago - 5 months 6 days ago #57796 by Alan
Pretty normal side effects. Temperature of less than 100.5 is ok, much higher call your doc. Urgency, razor blades voiding, aches, fatigue, spasms are all normal and become cumulative as you go. The good news they do subside. For me it was all ok usually by the second day. Should these become really bad dosage can be reduced to 1/2, 1/3, 1/4 and usually the same coverage. This is was better than systemic chemo!

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.

I completed six BCG treatments two weeks ago. Hope it is working. I do not have fever but my body aches at the end of the day. I take Tylenol and it goes away.

Did any one have these symptoms?

I am going for a biopsy in a couple of weeks. It looks like BCG is in short supply and may not be available for additional inductions and maintenance treatment. Any suggestions on what to expect?

Thanks in advance
