OB right before Christmas... What should I do??

Recommended Posts

austintxee

I am 21 and home for the holidays. I had my first outbreak about two weeks ago and now it is coming back. I am taking the meds the dr gave me but apparently I am having another one anyway. We are supposed to drive 15 hours tomorrow and I am scared to death. I don't want to ruin everyone's holidays but it hurts to pee already. There is no way I can ride in the car that long and pee in public restrooms... I have to pee in the tub and even then I scream. My mom and dad know about it, but the rest of the family doesn't and I don't see any reason they should know. I don't think my parents are taking my fear seriously and I am scared to go that far. What should I do??

I know that you most feel really bad. I didn't know that I have it until a few months ago. I am experiencing the same thing as you are I just had a outbreak 3 weeks ago and I am in the middle of another now.

austintxee - usually this symptom only happens with a first ob and once it goes away you'll be okay.

drink lots of water to dilute the acidity of the urine and reduce the stinging sensation. You can take a bottled water with you and pour it over yourself while urinating, when not at home, to dilute stuff and wash clean. Pat dry.

starting today take some warm baths with Epsom Salts. They will help to stop some of the pain and speed healing. I also like the Aveeno Active Naturals Soothing Bath Powder added to the bath.

you can take otc pain meds such as Tylenol, Advil and Aleve to help with pain.

I'm sorry you are hurting so much.

Thanks so much for the advice. I talked to my parents about it and they finally understood how much pain i was in when i had to try to potty here in the bathtub. I guess they could hear me crying. I think this ob is worse than the first one... I thought it got easier. Thanks so much for the advice! I made the trip and my parents were very patient when I had to use the restroom. Thanks again!
