I'm a 67 year old white male in very good condition for my age. I work a full time job doing reasonably hard physical work. I am a HVAC/R technician that requires me to climb ladders carrying tools and parts, and work on hot roofs (Houston Texas) and on "live machines" meaning they have 460 volts to them. I have been doing this work for 35 years.
Now I have bladder cancer. I had an operation on the 29th of last month, and my first BCG treatment the Friday before last (9 days ago). The results were that I was fine until Saturday morning around Noon and then almost instantly I ran out of energy and got "flu-like" symptoms that lasted until the following Wednesday.
Thursday I felt 100% normal.
Friday, I had treatment number 2. The results were horrible. By 6 pm (4 hours later) I was unable to function. I was in the worse pain of my life. It lasted for about 40 hours.
The bottom line is.... I can't handle it. That's the last treatment I'll have.
