Percutaneous Tibial Nerve Stimulation
Well I got my Interstim re-programmed today. I also started the 12 week therapy for Percutaneous Tibial Nerve Stimulation. It wasn't bad but tonight I have severe bladder pain and spasms. The only thing I had to do was shut off the Interstim and then they set me next to the toilet in the office because I have to pee every 10 minutes. I sat there for 30 minutes and that was it.
Hopefully the Interstim re-program helps and they told me it would be 5-6 weeks before anything on the tibial nerve stimulation.
