    Question Tens Unit

    Well I just had an appt. today with my uro. Since I've started physical therapy and bladder instillations I have been flaring really bad. My uro put me on a tens unit to try and see if it works for me. I'm not sure yet if it's working, but it seems to be helping somewhat. Does anyone else have a tens unit and find that it is helpful? Thanks Chelsey

    Hi
    I use a TENS on back especially when bladder and back are acting up at the same time.. I did not find it helped with the bladder but sure does help with the back pain..Curious as to where your Dr told you to put the pads...My uro showed one spot on leg that was some how connected to bladder. I sorted experimented with different spots.. Let me know how you make out with it..

    The doctor said I could put two where my bra line goes and two down near my tail bone. That way I was getting all of the nerves that ran to the bladder and the pelvic floor muscle. I believe that is what she said that targets. She also said I could put two at my hip bones and two lower. Of course she did mention I can use my tens unit anywhere on my body except for my head. I'm excited, I really hope that it helps me out. I can't stand being in pain. Especially since I'm a college student and hearing impaired. It's very important that I'm in my classes. I've had to drop out of a few just because the stress has been too much on me. Chelsey

    I have a TENS unit but it doesn't help me alot.... I have an interferential*sp unit in the mail right now that I should be getting in a few days. My chiropracter uses that on my back and when he puts it on the right spot my pain completely goes away.
