I did ask the nurse why I would pass blood after the first installation but none of the other ones and she suggested that it was probably from the insertion of the catheter and not the BCG.
I was also searching online to see how long your immune cells work at attacking the abnormal cells with BCG. I was trying to see if your immune cells only went after the bad cells while the BCG was in the bladder of if there is a lasting effect for hours, days or even weeks. But I couldn't find any definite answers.
