Hi,  anyone know if antibiotics can be added to bladder instillations?   Isn't the general protocol to get rid of infection *before* instillations?   Some people with proven infections & who can't tolerate abx seem to be given treatment with instillations anyway (which as I understand it re-build bladder wall) without getting rid of infection first.  They are under the impression the instillation treats the infection too.   The specialist I'm seeing says infection must be got rid of first!      Confused [confused]

Surely instills when infected will only seal infection in.I also find this the most confusing condition ever all the conflicting veiws from people if you keep reading them you will drive yourself nuts.

ha - so true.. but at the same time if you already are a complicated patient you have to research all you can.  I tend to find specialists run screaming in the opposite direction unless I sort most of this out for myself & give them an idea of what I can and can't deal with.. [rolleyes]

It seems some instillations do use Gentamicin https://www.ichelp.org/diagnosis-treatment/treatments/bladder-instillations/bladder-cocktails/

Not sure who Mr A is - can you PM me with his dets?   I talked to Prof K when I finally got to him , asked if surely we can have abx via instillations because (a) it gets straight to the problem area (b) it won't badly upset the rest of your bod (c) those of us who can't tolerate abx might be able to tolerate that system as using much smaller doses - it would bypass areas of our bod which react badly to abx.   He says he does in a very few cases but that it causes "other problems", didn't go into it in detail.

Healthwhit - let us know how this works for you?  [thumb]
