  • Suppose to do instill today and I am sick!

    Hey Gals.
    I am suppose to do my first instill today and yesterday I came down with the flu or a nasty virus. I had a fever and my body aches all over. I woke up this morning feeling a tiny bit better, but still feeling yucky. My son is sick too, he brought it home to us:o)

    I am not sure if I should cancel the instill appointment or not. I am so reluctant about doing it. I keep thinking that something bad will come of it or that I will have a bad reaction to the instill. It just seems so unnatural to be injecting medicine up there. I am worried for alot of reasons. First, that it will make me worse, second that I will have a bad reaction to the instill, and third that I will get an infection from it. And me being sick now with this bug is making it all worse.

    Geez, this is a hard decision to make. I swear I am so indecisive about this. Part of me says that I should just do it and get it over with, and the other part of me is saying that it is a bad idea that it is not a natural thing to do and there will likely be side effects. I guess the idea of them putting 4 different meds in me kind of scares me. I mean if I had a reaction , I would never know which med it was from. My biggest fear is not being able to pee afterwards and it making my pain worse.

    Right now, I already get that feeling like when I pee at times, I dont empty completely and worry that the instill will make this worse. I know there is not way to tell if that will happen unless I do it though.

    Well, my appointment is at 2:30, so I will have to make up my mind soon. I was hoping I would feel better though. Thanks gals for listening.

    Anytime you are sick and have an appt. with the Dr. for a treatment or something, a call to the Dr. is in order to see if they want to see you. My guess is no in this particular case but you should always check with them. It would be pretty hard to lay still for an install with the flu.

    Feel better soon.

      Thanks Jolene.
      I actually cancelled, my fever came back and I just feel horrid. The only bad thing is that I have to wait until next Friday to get the instill. I pray my bladder will be kind to me this week while I wait. Thanks again.
