Hi everyone, I'm facing another major challenge with this bladder cancer. I'm advised now that there is a (worldwide?) shortage of BCG, which is a treatment for bladder cancer, at least here in Canada, but I was also told this shortage is worldwide. I am due to start another round of treatments likely next month, but now this is uncertain. I hear that some patients may receive one third of the regular dose, but how they will determine who gets even a reduced dose, is beyond me. Its' even being said that some patients may end up having their bladder removed. (which is a major operation, especially for women) because of this shortage. There isn't any information out there as to when or if this problem will be rectified. This is really upsetting. Its' bad enough to be dealing with cancer period, without now having this shortage to worry about. I guess it just never ends.
Anyone else out there dealing with this problem? Is there a shortage in the UK?
