Diagnosed with cancer 2

Hi

Went for my 2nd BCG instillation on Wednesday, with no problems.  Discussed my side effects with my doctor. (Chills after 24 hours and minute blood spot on the Tuesday - 6 days after instillation). He said that side effects indicate that the medication is working. (Horay for side effects)

This time however my side effects began about 2 hours after receiving the BCG - Chills and fever (flu like) and the most agonising burn upon urination (only the first 2 times). Also had some hermaturia.  By Thursday midday I was fine. Would like to hear from anyone that has had the same side effects. (Keen to reasure myself that this is normal - it does list these side effects on the pamphlet that comes with the bcg vials
