For Pain?

My last BCG (and I have two more Wednesdays to go) was very painful, after the first void. It lasted for about six hours - peeing blood and pain for the whole time. If any of you have this problem, what do you take? Should I ask the nurse who does my treatments to get me a prescription for something? Ibuprofen didn't work last week.... :ohmy:

Thanks,
Lauren

do your symptoms last more than 48 hrs? Maybe BCG induced cystitis....the french have come up with a solution

you might do just as well on a reduced dosage...see if he'll go down a l/3.

From what I have read a lower dosage is often the best approach. Rick

Prosed or pyridium either one helped with the burning. I had terrific spasms, and oxybutynin worked wonder on easing the bladder spasms. 15 down, more to go.

Good Luck,

Rebecca

The nurse said she'd get the dosage diluted for this week's treatment - yes!!!! I cannot picture getting on a plane six 7 hours later after peeing out pieces of my bladder all afternoon...hopefully, it will only be half as bad.
