  • 1st Uracyst Instillation Wednesday! Anyone else tried it yet?

    Just wanted to report that I'm having my first Uracyst instillation on Wednesday! Has anyone else tried it yet? I'm in Spain and my doctor said he's heard that people get better results from it than from Cystistat. I'm very nervous because I was finally contacted by my employers (I've been trying to get info from them for weeks on their policy for sick employees!!). They said they would essentially "accept my resignation" if I could not come back to work by Wednesday. I explained that I finally begin treatments on Wednesday and that I would be back, I'm hoping for a miracle even though I know it can take several instillations for results. Also when I had the catheter in for my cystoscopy last week it was the most intense pain I've ever experienced in my life, and then my symptoms were much worse for a few days following. SO, wish me luck, and I"ll be reporting back to let everyone know how the Uracyst is working!

        Hi Danielle,

        My Dr also said that he's had better results from uracyst than cystistat. I am going Tuesday to start having them. Have they done anything for you?
