BCG treatment

HI,


I completed 5 BCG treatments. The 5th was extremely painful. I told Dr about it. He suggested to cancel the 6th treatment.


Will it make any difference in the results if the last treatment is not taken? Can anybody clarify?
Thanks.
Josh

  1. , so glad you're here. I'm sorry to hear that your 5th BCG treatment was painful. Unfortunately, our team is non-clinical and we cannot give you this answer. You should really discuss this with your doctor if you haven't already. Only a physician who knows your entire case can say whether or not the last treatment will make a difference or not. Good luck and let us know how it goes. ~Liz, Moderator

    1. - As Liz stated we are not medical professionals and cannot provide medical advice but I am wondering if possibly your doctor can offer suggestions as how to reduce the pain should you decide to move forward with your 6th treatment. Did you have pain with the other treatments also? I would reach out to your doctor and confirm that cancelling the treatment will not negatively impact things just to make you feel better if that is your decision. My best to you. Please keep us updated. Linda ( moderator, BladderCancer.net team member)

      1. Hi . I'm so sorry to hear how painful treatment has been. How are you? Have you noticed any new differences after the last BCG? We also shared your question in the Facebook community and had a few extra responses. https://www.facebook.com/BladderCancerDotNet/posts/4084942351566326
