  • Electrical Stimulation

    I was just wondering if any body has ever had to do the gene probe Electrical Stimulation?? I'm scared that this will hurt. I am new to this whole IC I didn't even know that it exsits until now. I have to go and have the electrical stimulation for 6 weeks once a week. I'm not looking forward to it.

    Hey, I am off the subject here. I want to post about my doctor appointment and Interstim implant.

    I have been put on a 3 month waiting list for a trial Interstim. The specialist I saw tells me that not only will it help with my IC pain, he said it would help with my chronic pelvic pain, my back pain and help my bowels. He said i am a good candidate for the device.

    The doctor at the Pelvic Floor Center in Minneapolis tells me basically I have nerves that are miss-firing and they are sending messages of pain to my brain. He says that these nerves some how start sending the wrong message.

    I do not want to wait the 3 months if it will help me with all of these areas of pain.

    The doctor tells me my Burch or what he called 'a bladder vault suspension' is still intact. He doesnt want to go in and operate or remove the scar tissue. He says i am at the age where i should start menopause so when that happens the endometrosis will stop growing.

    I also had a bladder scope and the Dr. gave me some peridium s.p. to numb the bladder and an Rx of seems to help some.
