    Everybody is different. What works for some doesn't for others. I had great luck with the heparin/lidocaine installation which I have done once a week and have been doing it for at least 10 years now. It did take 8 months before it started helping but I seem to be the odd ball on that. From reading others posts they had relief faster then me. It's really a gamble but for me I would say yes it was well worth it. I get 3 days of relief from pain and peeing. In the beginning I peed every 10-15 minutes. After the heparin instill started helping about every 30 minutes. Then pain medicine was added and I don't have to get up to pee at all during the night. Well, unless I had a really bad mentally day and my bladder is upset but on normal days I don't get up anymore.

        There are different solutions being used for instillations. And there are some ICers who self instill as often as every day. A close friend does them every day, sometimes twice a day, and is able to work full time by doing them.

        Sending well wishes,
