I use this: http://www.dealmed.c..._7c7870_a_7c944

with a 2 oz syringe. I cath, then when I am done I fill the syringe with the solution, attach it to the end of my catheter, and push the solution through the catheter into my bladder, then I suck it back out. I do it two or three times. I went a few months without doing it because I couldnt find the solution (which is why I recently bought it online, same exact product as what the doctor office gives you) but I'm starting to do it every few days or once a week.


Your doctor should just be able to write you a presciption for Sodium Chloride 0.9% irrigation USP and the syringes. If your doctor won't, you can just ask the pharmacy, I think.

Yep, I do saline flushes twice a day right now. My Urologist ordered it and it has made a drastic difference in my situation. I have litterally had back to back UTI's for 1 1/2 years Not more than a week without one. I have only been doing this for 2 weeks but it works. I must note though, I have a suprapubic catheter. The best decision I ever made.

Microcyn is available OTC as Vetericyn, which is the veterinary equivalent, double strength. I let Amazon find the best price for me. Do read the thread on CureCare forums for how to.

The only thing I use now in my bladder is Microcyn/Vetericyn VF. I order 4 bottles at a time so my shipping is free at: http://medi-vet.com/ (I always order Vetericyn VF) I usually receive my shipment in 1 to 2 days but they are located in Louisiana and do not have far to ship it. I will cath and leave the catheter inserted and inject 20ml of VVF into my bladder. I leave the syringe in the catheter and remove the catheter/syringe, leaving the VVF in my bladder. I just leave the VVF in until I cath again. It has helped me out tremendously in killing/preventing uti's and also I use VVF for pressure ulcers, cuts and burns. I use it also when I get conjunctivitis (pink eye) in the eyes as it heals it quickly.

I wish you luck and I hope this helps.
