After two minutes, patient is asked to rate the discomfort and urgency on a scale of 0-4 with 4 being the worst they could imagine. Water is drawn off and 40 cc of Solution B was instilled into the bladder. After two minutes, patient is again asked to rate the discomfort and urgency on a scale of 0-4, considering their baseline.
