It should not make a lot of difference because the BCG is usually administered by a nurse...it does not require "surgical" expertise! Also depends on how long a drive. The drive from my uro's office to my home was less than 30 minutes. I couldn't have made it much farther before the cramps and, eventually, peeing started.

Trying to decide whether to have BCG treatments at the NCI hospital where my surgeon is which is a bit of a drive or have them at a local urologist office/facility. Would like to know what others have chosen and how it worked out between you, the facility, a local uro and your NCI surgeon if you chose to have them at an offsite facility?
