joint pain/swollen knees/ conjunctivitis after 9 BCG instills - ractive arthrit

1 year 9 months ago #55921 by Tallinn
Hello- this is my first post- brandnew to the site.

I had Turbt 18 December 2017. HG TA urothelial carcinoma./ - started BCG 6 weeks on 16 Feb 2018/ 3 weeks June 2 2018/ 3 weeks Sep 11 2018.

Cystoscopies- 2/6 2018- 5/8 2018- 8/14 2018 have all been clean.

After last BCG Sep 25 I developed severe neck pain within 5 days followed by left knee pain and an eye infection..Saw optometrist and was put on steroid drops....

Urology has not been concerned at all and only orderd metabolic panel and urine All normal. My primary care did
C-reactive protein =4.8mg and Sedimentation rate =36 mm. Both high indicating inflamation. Am on naproxen 500 X 2 dailey.

Does anyone have advise? Feel miserable- jaw now also hurting and right knee swollen Am afraid that this could be directly related to BCG treatment.. Reactive arthritis comes to mind.

Thank you all- sorry this was so lenghthy. At the moment I have no faith in Uro and feel like I am being brushed off.. No call and hey have results since yesterday.
