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.

Hi guys its been a while since i posted my last account i forgot the password, but i tried all the anitbotics in the world its seems and my urolgists says now that he wants me to go on iv antibotics but before i do that i read some of the others posts on here where you have had goodluck with bladder flushes. i need to find out where i can get the microsyn and or saline solutions so i can try todo a bladder flush myself but also need to find out the technique to do it and how much of the ingredients to use.thanks guys anything would be helpful at this point
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.
