  • Whhyyyyyyy did I get an instillation today? Burning! & Question-

    Hi all,

    I'm really kicking myself right now. I had been in a flare for almost a month and for the past few days was feeling better. Had two instills over the past two weeks and re-visited my dr. today. She encouraged me to get the third instill today as she thought I could be getting better from the previous instills. Well wouldn't you know it. No I'm feeling worse than I have in the past few days. Burning, burning, burning in my urethra! Is this a flare caused by the catheter perhaps or a side effect from what they used in the instill? I'm so mad at myself. I wish I would have listened to that voice in my head and held off on getting one today.

    I hope you're feeling a little better today. If not, I suggest you give your doctor a call. It could easily be irritation from the catheter --- if that's the problem, over the counter AZO might help. It turns the urine orange and stains everything, but can be very soothing. Do you know what was in the solution instilled? Do you have any pain meds?
