Becky, I just had my first BCG treatment today. They gave me a brochure from the company that sells the stuff. You put two cups of bleach in the toilet and let it sit 15 minutes before flushing. The is done everytime you go for six hours. The nurse also suggested that at the six hour mark I use the toilet one last time with the bleach to be sure that most of it is out of the bladder. So far, so good...the procedure was minimal. Now we see how I do the next day or so and the next treatments!!
