    Hi All! I am posting this here. I saw my uro last week. I explained how Physical therapy went----not good. She left it up to me if I wanted to continue. I don't. With the pain as bad as it was she was fine with me not continuing. I was so worried!!
    She put me on 800 mg of Ibuprofen 3 times a day for the next week. she thinks the PT has everything inflamed. We shall see how I do on that!
    I asked for a hydro! This time she was fine with it. We will schedule and if I feel better then we can cancel it. She thought maybe end of june sometime july.
    It was a very good visit. My uro is at UC San Fransisco. I drove there myself also! usually my husband has to take time off from work. BUT I DID IT! my older son went with me. It was great!

    Many ICers have a problem with ibuprofen. I know I can't take it.

    Stay safe
