View Full Version : sharing my story

Hi everyone. My story begins in 1998, July I think.. My GYN was treating me for Bladder Infection. That didn't work so then he dilated my urethra...didn't that hurt?? Ok for 3 days. My GP then referred me to a urologist who performed a hydrodistention, finding IC. I have been on Elmiron and Amytrytline ever since. I have bad days and good days. Now that I am retired and no longer on my feet for hours at a time, I feel much better. I try to watch my diet but I am a junk food junkee and it is sooo hard. I am looking forward to hearing from you and hope to find out some new things to try. Firstmate from Canada.

welcome!!! We are here to help you if we can. I am usually much happier the less active I am too, but that just doesn't seem fair to me.

I think I answered a post of yours yesterday but may have got lost in the downtime of the boards. I was dignosed in July and started Elmiron 8 weeks ago and I am actually starting to feel good. I am also in a lot less stress then I was thru the summer and I know stress affects me big time. There are now days when I can almost forget I have a bladder.
I am in NS feel free to pm me anyime.
I have learned more on these boards then I have from uro and Dr. Welcome to the boards. Everyone is very helpfull.

Thank you for the great greetings. It is so good to know that you are not alone. I am new to the world of computers so I am slow to finding things. BUT I am learning.
