What happens right after the procedure?
After the procedure, medications will be given to help prevent side effects. A person will also be told how to manage any side effects. A person who has been given BCG into the bladder may need to take special precautions. The BCG is live and can potentially cause infections. Bleach must be added to the toilet bowl each time the person urinates for the first several hours after treatment. Care should be taken not to handle urine without gloves. Handwashing after contact with urine is important.
