My husband is newly diagnosed (HG-Ta and Tis) had the TURBC and is now having the weekly BCG treatments.
His Dr. said:
1. He doesnt have to lay down and turn after treatments and said to keep it in for 1 - 1 1/2 hours but said 1 hour was OK.
2. He said there is no need to use bleach in the toilet.
3. He said no need to use separate bathroom.
4. He said no precautions were needed for intercourse, no protection (condums) needed.
We went for a second opinion at UCLA and specifically asked about the time the BCG should dwell, if he should lay down and turn, and if we needed protection during intercourse. He said our local Dr. was right. He said my husband can walk around while the BCG dwells and 1 hour was OK. He said no precautions are needed with intercourse.
Has anyone else heard this?
Had anyone transmitted BCG to their spouse?
