Alcohol Drinks after Diagnosed With Bladder Cancer

Thanks sara for your reply, you have always been a great help and support.

I've tried drinking alcohol on couple of occasions and it did not affect or irritate my bladder like before. I was fine. I also read couple of articles regarding this matter and every one of them made their conclusion as alcohol is not related to causing bladder cancer, or recurring it.

I never had any warnings about alcohol and BCG. IF it irritates your bladder, that is a different story.

This is from a handout for patients being treated with BCG

" The drinking of alcohol (in small amounts) does not appear to affect the safety or usefulness of BCG."

It's passed 2 month since i was diagnosed with bladder cancer stage I, and i have only 1 BCG left to inject into my bladder. I didn't ask my doctor about drinking alcohol, he is in a vacation and he wont comeback in 1 month.

Is it okay to drink alcohol? I remember in the past 1 year everytime i drank alcohol drinks my bladder got irritated a little, also cirtus fruits and tomato had the same effect of irritating.
