  • Side effects of instills

    My daughter had her first DMSO instill yesterday. She was quite anxious about it before hand but did well. However she started complaining last night about an upset stomach and has not been able to keep much of anything down. She is also running a low grade fever. I was just wondering if anyone else experienced this or if it's possible it's just a coincidence. Thanks.
    I am the mother of two daughters. One is 11 and was diagnosed last year with IC, the oldest daughter is now 14 and was diagnosed with IC also at the age of 11 but only after many months of suffering and misdiagnoses until we found Dr. Atkins in Wes Chester, PA who has been a huge support for Megan. You see most IC specialist will not see children, he made an exception and gave her her life back! She had a cystoscopy and hydrodistension in December 2010 which confirmed the diagnosis.

    Remember: You know yourself/your child. Don't let anyone convince you that "It's all in your/their head" or "you/they just don't want to go to work/school". Keep pushing until you get a doctor you are comfortable with and an answer that truly addresses the problems.

    It could very well be coincidence or even nerves, but if she doesn't feel better by early afternoon, I suggest she be checked to be sure she doesn't have an infection.

    Stay safe
