My husband has non-invasive bladder cancer. He has been doing it for 18 months. In that time period he has had three reoccurring tumors. He does not qualify for bladder removal and building a new one because of his current health issues and weight. After this last surgery to remove tumor my husband had two options, so he chose to start back on BCG treatments. He just had his first treatment of six for the beginning of 6 treatments. We’ Experienced a first this time. After emptying his bladder of treatment it was bedtime. At night he uses a urinal and the next morning it was full of tissue-flesh colored that sank to the bottom of bottle. He has not complained of discomfort or pain when urinating. He did have a brief spell of very low abdomen pain about 20 minutes in between first and second release of BCG. We’ve dealt with blood clots but never this fleshy stuff. Should we be concerned? Oh he is diagnosed with T1 Highly aggressive bladder cancer. Any answers or suggestions as to what it would be will be appreciated.
Similar to my experience. T1MO, NO; 9 BCG treatments to date. More often, “fresh” tissue with void within a day or two of treatment, then “scab” tissue within four to five days following treatment. No discomfort and I think it’s just part of the process. Hope this helps.
Bladder; High grade Urothelial Displasia, non-invasive Papillary Carcinoma.
Regarding the fleshy tissue in urine, my Doc and lots and lots of online research indicate this is normal. Since I also have prostate cancer of the same type my symptoms may be a bit different. I find that I experience SEVERE pain the last couple of seconds during urination followed by a very few drops of blood. Not intolerable but uncomfortable all the same. Next BCG treatment is Thursday @1500 hrs. Feel good and keeping a good attitude!
