Dr. Lamm opined some time ago about bleach, and questioning the need to use a disinfectant.

I'm on a septic system, and cautious about bleach and cleaning products. After talking to the local health department and others, I used hydrogen peroxide instead. Check on local rules.

Dr. Lamm addresses the issue , see message #51785 on this board, or use the following link:

See what your Doc and local authorities say.

Best,
Jack

My doctor/Urologist biggest concern immediate is running out of bleach to disenfect the commodes after void from sessions. No bleach anywhere. Probably depends on location for no general rule on this.

I start another round of Maintenance on April 10, so I'm in the same boat - waiting it out. I have had other appointments changed from in-person to phone calls.

Just wondering if anyone has been advised by Dr. to delay BCG Treatments until COVID-19 pandemic settles down. I'm due for another round next month and in high risk age group obviously have concerns about it. Thoughts?
