Customer Question
Sept.2011. None of conservative treatments...
I have been diagnosed with interstitical cyctitis in Sept.2011. None of conservative treatments (VesiCare, Elmiron, hydroxysine, amitryptiline, uribel, DMSO and Elmiron and corticosteroid instillations worked. I had two fulgurations, was syptoms-free for 2 months only after the first procedure. Then symptoms returned at full force (frequent, painful urination, up to 40 times a day, up to 10 at night, spasmodic urge attacks to void every 2 minutes for 2 hours). I went to Russia for treatment in June, had only 6 instillations (protargol, followed in 30 minutes with Levomekol_+Synthomycin+Lidocaine heated cocktail), and I forgot about symptoms after the second instillation! Now I am back to the States, and I am wondering whether I can continue this simple and miraculously effective treartment here. I read that protargol is not used in USA. Can I have any hope being treated for real in the States? Cyctectomy is not the answer.

Looking through literature I found that protargol was used in USA early in XX century.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
