Just found out
I was just diagnosed with IC a week ago. I'm a 21 year old male that's not too optimistic about this, and was hoping others can support me to believe other ways. The doctor said during the biopsy, they pumped water into my bladder, normal bladder would hold about 1200cc and mine held 500cc..this is during anthesia periods...my bladder wouldnt hold that much when i'm awake. My biggest problem is the urgency and frequency to use the bathroom. I have made two other threads, since i didn't want to mix all of this together...but here are the links to the others, if anyone can respond, that would help...thank you.

to the IC Network family. Have you found the Patient Handbook? The link is at the top of this page. You'll find a great deal of information about treatment options, including the IC diet, which I suggest you begin immediately --- the diet can help significantly.
