Barb,
You can buy something for urinary pain and/or burning ,over the counter, called "AZO".
Wishing you well,

Hi Barb,

I had my first TURB with mitomycin last August. I had burning for 1-2 weeks, I had frequent trips to the restroom but overall no big deal. I was back to work in a day. My bladder did not return to what I would all normal for about 5 - 6 weeks. I have had 2 clear cystos since the July TURB. All my best,

Gregg

Thanks for all the great replies. This has really been my only side effect from it, but I have only had the one dose. It's not unbearable but just wanted to make sure it was normal. Thanks, I love that we are able to help others through this site.

I am also new here...I start my first round of mitomycin next week (Monday) and also worried about the side effects. My urologist gives the impression that it is no big deal. I was first diagnosed in July of 2005 and just finished with my second surgery for a reoccurence. I guess I am looking for some reasurance that this treatment is less painful thant the TOR. ::)

I suspect different folks react to Mitomycin in different ways. I did have burning for a week.. and when I tried to have weekly mitomycin put in, I really reacted to it and only took 5 instead of 6. Tried a treatment of 3 six months later and could only tolerate 2 treatments.. burning lasted about 10 days after just 2 treatments. I told my Uro, no more of that stuff for me... :P

Hang in there.. it will go away.. my Uro never offered me anything to alleviate the burning...!!!

It is not unheard of but if you are worried call your Uro. There are medications they can give you to help with the burning.

Chin up and straight forward
