  • Gotta go gotta go right now!!

    Hello all, I had a hydro on May 6 with DR. EVANS he is a great man/DR. Everything went smooth. Then same day my Parents split, my dad lives w/ me and my mom alone. Then my husband and I have his father living here also. I am under sooooo much stress you could not imagine. I know stress isn't good for the bladder, tried Cymbalta ewww sick all time. So now, since I do take Migraine meds I have made myself appt w/ my Neuro to see what he would like for me to go on. Dr. Evans wants me to take something for my stress but I like to be very safe. Does anyone have the pp all the time thing w/ ALOT of Stress. I need prayers too. My dad has superficial bladder cancer, which they have mentioned removing his bladder now I don't know about that he is 75 yrs old and that is a Major surgery. I have read that you have to cath yourself after that is done am I correct? We are going back to the dr. tomorrow I have a page of questions and treatment options I have looked up for him. I love my Daddy but, I need some private time w/ my child and husband and I know my husband loves his but we need some PRIVATE TIME.

      No matter how stressful life is, to really get control of your I.C. symptoms, you need to control your stress.

      I can't say how paramount stress relief is when dealing with any medical condition that involves alot of pain and frustration - here's what works for me when I'm going through a particularly stressful month/season/year...

      Having some alone time in a field or by a lake (anywhere where you can get in touch with nature)
      Being with animals
      Low dose valiums and hot baths (at the same time - and of course I have to mention that you should only take medication prescribed to you, etc...)
      And sometimes, when those fail, I try to sleep for a long time, because things seem brighter when I wake up

      Just remember to stay strong and when you make it through this tough time, life will appear all the more magical.
      Diagnosed with IC in 2005, since then have been diagnosed with an unspecified autoimmune disease, with inflammation in my bladder, colon, left knee, left ear, left eye, lungs and pericardium. Argh!
