Hello, I really like hearing from you and Clyde. You give me hope. Tomorrow is my 6th BCG Treatment and as you know I have a break. I get a scope in 3 weeks and then Doc will tell me how it went. I am hoping that in about 2 to 3 years I can say what Clyde is saying. I am greatful for all your posts. Hopefully in a couple of years my posts will inspire some newbees too. Thanks. Eddie S.
Hello everyone Just thought I give a update on my treatment. Just finish my first maintenance treatment with really no side effects just a lot of blood for a while for the first 4 hour after treatment. My second scoping can out good. In April it will be one year clean. I have noticed that by adding a exercising program to my treatment it has help me so far. I lost over 16 pound of weight by walking 5 mile a day at fast pace over the last few months.
I am going to tried everything possible to prevent this cancer from coming back Will started second maintenance treatment in May this year and put it God hand .
Thank for information One thing I didn't mention I also started a exercising program walking 4 mile per day and have increased my time per minute
I walked around 14 to 15 minute per mile It seem to help me with my side effect. I don't walk the day of treatment thou
Just finished my 8 BCG treatment and I have noticed a lot more blood in my urine when peeing I took 4 hour of drinking a lot of water to have clear urine. I drink 8 bottle of water this time before clear urine.
I really hadn't had a lot of side effect except blood in urine and having a hard time peeing.
I just completed my 23rd BCG treatment today. I get burning in frequency for about 24 hours. However, any burning and discomfort is well worth the goal we all seek, I've been clear for 21 month's now. I had to do two 6 week induction courses because the first one didn't clear my CIS from my bladder. I'm following the SWOG protocol. There is allot of good information on BCAN.org. BCG is a blessing to me. We are fortunate to have access to it. Good luck with your future treatments!
