    Has anyone been diagnosed with a Hunner's ulcer? What did they do for it? If it was lasar-treated, how did you do with the procedure? Did it help?

      I have them and in my case, the treatment is the same as for any other IC patient.

      Stay safe

          Hi, I have had Hunner's Ulcers for 29 years. I have had them fulgurated, treated with DMSO and Chlorpactin irrigations, taken oral Amicar and every urinary antibiotic known to man, and even had a partial cystectomy. I have EC(eosinophilic cystitis) not IC but have been treated with the same medications, irrigations, treatments, and surgical procedures used to treat IC. Nothing has worked for me. The ulcerations I have bleed so badly that I suffer from severe anemia. My hemoglobin ranges between 3.7 and 5.2 ( it should range between 12 to 14). The severity of my condition is somewhat rare from what I understand. Hopefully others suffering from Hunner's ulcers will benefit from treatment.
