Number 4 of 6 BCG

I do have Urobel but MD said not to use. Perhaps because it has a anti inflammatory aspect?

Hope your husband does well with Neobladder!

My husband had a burning sensation after BCG treatments, and the urologist perscribed Uribel tablets that really helped. Be aware it turns the urine blue.

Also, looked at the photo and it was mild in comparison to flushing out the neo-bladder after surgery. That is really gross ! I've been doing it twice a day for a week now since we got home from the hospital. Another week to go before follow up to see if neo-bladder healed for activation.

That's the kind of photo that would send you running to the doctor, if you wern't being treated already, and expecting this as a "side effect" of treatment.

Hoping that BCG does the job for you. Not a barrel of laughs, but still the best chance of resolving the issue.

Number 6 of 6 in the books!

It was again very painful. Not constant but urgency off the charts, pain from muddle to end of stream, and small volumes which kill. The first 6 hours are the worse.

When describing symptoms my treatment team felt I had infection. I was actually hoping that would be. The case and I could expect relief from antibiotics. Unfortunately culture came back negative.

Nothing I can’t handle but glad I have some time before maintenance 3 weeks.

Lots of tissue again for first 2 days in urine. Kind of proud of it. Would share picture if I could figure out how to attach.

Now I have scope first week in May then the 3 week maintenance.
