Skipping a week in my BCG treatment?

Hello! So I just had my non invasive tumor removed from my bladder. I will be starting my 6 week BCG treatment soon. I am hoping I will be able to skip 1 week during the treatment due to a vacation then continue on to finish the treatments. Have not heard back from the Nurses yet. Also all the good info on here is helping me get through this..

  1. hi. I am glad the information here is helping. Wishing you well with your treatment. I am not medically trained but I would say unless any medical reason, I am sure the nurses will support your request if possible. Take care. Wishing you well with the treatment and

    1. @Jfire - Happy to hear that you are finding info on here helpful. I did not have BCG and am not familiar with taking a week off so to speak during treatments. I hope that you get a positive answer on this. Enjoy your vacation and let us know how you are doing. My best Linda Urbanski ( moderator, Bladdercancer.net team member)

      1. I did hear back from my Dr. Office and they are fine with patients skipping a week during treatments as long as they complete the total number of required treatments.. Thank you...
