    I agree with some of the other ladies - try a few more weeks of instills if you can.

    Whenever I need a cycle of DMSO treatments, I always find relief at the tail end of the 6-8 weeks....I would not write it off until you had a whole cycle under your belt.

    Good luck with everything!

    Hugs,
    Beth

    PS I just finished my 6th instill of a DMSO cycle this week and feel TONS better than March/April!

    My improvement happened about a week after the last of 7 once a week DMSO cocktail instillations. I had become very sad thinking they weren't helping & then I suddenly felt better. After that I had them once every 4-6 weeks.

    That said, I had improvement, but I still didn't feel well, so the next summer I tried heparin rescue instillations. Those work a lot better for me, so I learned to do them at home & they're one of my main treatments now.

    I'd see if you can try the DMSO a little longer & then see how you feel a week or so later....

    It took me 5 before I saw any results. Talk to him & ask to try it a few more times. Kathi

    It took me about 6-8 DMSO treatments before I started to feel better so maybe you shouldn't give up yet. I have been using DMSO every 3 weeks for the past 15 years and it has been a lifesaver for me.

    DMSO - what should I do next?

    I've had 3 DMSO instills, and my Uro says most of his patients see improvement by now. He doesn't think it's worth continuing since I'm not better. I'm confused 'cuz I thought it took 6 or more sessions to see results.

    My urgency/frequency is a bit less, but pain is a bit more. Should I insist on continuring or write off DMSO as another failure in my LONG list of treatments tried/
Working...
