    Here, here MG~
    I'm on the same page, like I said before, if it was his Mother, daughter or child or anyone he truly cared for, a two month wait would have never entered his mind, and now that time has passed and Mom is no longer bleeding, the fear for her is gone, and I think she still needs to address it, but it is difficult to tell anyone what you think they should do or try and make them do it. She knows how I feel and all I can do at this point is pray that nothing serious is wrong. My Mom is my all time best friend and I want her to get better so I can have her for many more years. The Dr's make me crazy but my Mom has to be the one to make it happen, I pray she keeps the Appt. will keep you posted if it transpires. Thanks for touching base, it helps to know that people care about what happens to those they have never even met and your response is truly appreiciated. Hope you are well, Carolyn

      My Mom is my best friend too but she is from an era where Dr's are gods and you don't question them, it drives me nuts, and sometimes I sound like a broken recordered you need to get that looked at. But it often falls on deaf ear, and I think your mom needs to still deal with this, these things have a habit for IC pts to happen again.
      Take Care MG
      My are with you all. May you all find a way to peace and joy in your lives.

        Hey! Glad to hear the bleeding has stopped, at least for now. I think it helps to worry less (which is terribly hard with IC of course!), but then again it sounds like now she may not be worrying enough lol! I do hope she keeps the appointment, I think you have a very good point about waiting until the day before to make her mind. No harm in this. Also, if she is worried about them "going in" you know that she doesn't have to have anything done she doesn't want done. Now, they may not feel comfortable prescribing certain things if she refuses a test or procedure, but I know for me I am more comfortable if I go in once and just talk about things, go home, decide, and then come back feeling more confident.

        What you said about your mother was just about the sweetest thing ever. I feel the same way for mine, I don't know what I would do without her! It sounds like you guys have a great relationship and that is so important. And thanks for the compliment you paid me, I do try to stay as positive as possible as I know it helps me feel much better - some days are easier than others lol!

        MG, I think it's funny you talk about your mother being from a different era from with doctors. I am quite young, especially to be in a uro office, and on several occasions I've had doctors get frustrated with me and say, "why can't you just be like my older patients who don't question everything so darn much!?" Lol. Those who've said it never meant it in harm, they just also think the difference is a bit strange and new.
        Have had IC symptoms since childhood, but did not seek serious treatment or become diagnosed until I was in college.

        I've had a cystectomy with an Indiana Pouch. It was a success and has helped my symptoms and pain immensely.

          Thanks MG & Ollie R~
          Yes MG, my Mom is definately old school and when I'm on a roll, she does go into defensive mode, and can be very difficult in that she doesn't want to step on any toes, she may agree but is very shy in nature with others, always has been, and finds it hard to voice her opinion, I on the other hand am very vocal and have no problem with giving my opinion, you and I are definately the same in that respect! I sometimes think she wishes I would not call for at least a day, give her a breather, so to speak.

          Both you and MG are right, and I am pushing for Mom to go through with her appt. and pray that she does. I will continue to push even if she does get sick of me, it's for her own good and for me, shelfish reasons, she's too good to loose!!! I'm glad OllieR that you do keep a possitive attitude, your very young and can't imagine what any of you go through except to see what my Mother has gone through. You uplift me and I call and read to my Mother what you post and she too is amazed at your being so possitive, she thinks that at least she is older and can at least be at home and doesn't know how one so young can go through such terrible times, you give her hope and for me it makes me so greatful!! Thank you both, you seem to be the of two you, I now look forword to when I come to the IC network. Your both so insiteful and full of energy and the rub off is wonderful for me and my Mom, I feel like I have both of you as friends, and I thank you for that! I pray for you everyday to recieve healing! Talk to you soon, Carolyn
