Western North Carolina is also a nice place to be from, Although I must admit I transplanted from NY 8 years ago But I'll never move again.

HI Duke,

Thank you for the welcome Duke. Sad to hear BCG did not work for you. You know what my last name is Dukes and I can tell from your get tough, be tough, stay tough attitude and also with the Duke name that this speed bump is not going to stop you.

Best Wishes and God Bless,

Ray

Ray, sorry you have a need to be here, but welcome and glad y
ou found the site. This site and the people that operate it are a blessing. I am two yrs out after neobladder and the site has been like a road map for my journey. Knowing what to expect next and how to cope as you say is a lot better. I hope that the BCG works for you. I found very few side effects when i had BCG, But it didn't work for me.
Wishing you the best.

Thanks for the reply Joey,

Not knowing what to expect after TURBT through me through a loop and I talked to my urologist since then regarding that.

I now know a lot more and have a better idea going forward thanks to people as yourself and this forum. It's a lot better knowing up front at least for me.

Glad to hear you've been clean since 2008.

Regards,

Ray

Hi Ray

I have had 27 BCG treatments and you just never know from treatment to treatment what the side effects will be. Some were more obvious than others. I always had burning of various degrees, fever, aches, frequency. Sometimes I would develop a rash but all side effects would be gone in about 2 days. I was dx in dec 2007 and had one recur in 04/08 but have been clean since then.
