All 5 of my treatments were without side effects other than minor burning. My urine was clear at every visit. the 6th treatment was the most painful but nothing I couldn't handle. Like I said the more it hurt the more water I drank to clear everything out. I am experiencing a lot of back pain and do get UTI's more often but that is normal after treatments. I was told

 hubby and I used this treatment day as a getaway, we watched all out favorite movies stayed up late so I could drink water and use restroom. He was my support and anchor.  The BCG treatment will go great if you drink lots of liquids and follow the instructions. I have my 7th treatment in September, although my bladder cancer was clear the treatments ate to prevent the cancer from coming back. they will not be as often as the induction (6 weeks). hang in there and be positive you will get through this. Prayers your way

Yes I drank about 5+ 16 oz bottles of water and a large, iced tea with dinner. I found the more water you drink the better you will be. I wanted to make sure the drug was flushed out before coming into the house where my special needs daughter was sleeping. I was staying in the motorhome in the front driveway. My sister was taking care of my daughter during my 6-hour contagious time. Please use the bleach as instructed. I also used small bars of soap to wash my hands then threw them away after use. I took a lot of extra precautions which most people don't have too.
