bladder ca

4 years ago I was Rxed for polymositis rheumatica with prednisone. Now a day or 2 after instillation of BCG into the bladder the sx all recur. Is it OK to take a small dose of prednisone (5-10 mg) for these sx without jeopardizing the BCG rx?

I'm not sure if you are aware of this, but there is an excellent bladder cancer forum, hosted by the American Bladder Cancer Society. You might want to join that (if you haven't already) and post this question there.  http://www.bladdercancersupport.org/

Thanks for your help. I checked there plus a couple of  othe places. With what I could find out plus a long conversation with my urologist and a rheumatologist we seem to have figured out the problem
