    Keep mailing 'Oprah'

    Saronjini (Jen) has mentioned doing this somewhere below her signature. I think it's a wonderful idea. I emailed the Oprah show a few days ago and some other people did the same. I just keep thinking...people watch Oprah. There needs to be someone 'high-profile' to bring IC to the public. She is very good at educating and making the public aware of womens' cries for help! We need a loud voice calling out in this wilderness (referring to the general public and some of the medical community who either don't know about IC or don't really care!)

    Couldn't find it..

    ...what is on the U.S. cover? I know Jill said it's the April issue....I'll keep looking. If they happen to put it on their website...it would be nice so I can email it to friends and family.

    Thanks,

    Dani

    Hey,

    Thats the wrong April issue. The IC article is in the issue dated April 1st. Women's Day sometimes has more than one issue a month. I hope that helps.

    My last few trips to the ER, the doctors & nurses all knew about IC.
    Most said upfront that they don't have a lot of knowledge, but they do know it is very painful. Progress.

    Better than 4 years ago when I first got IC, didn't know what I had, horrible pain & bladder spasms, went to the ER in the middle of the night, negative urine test at the hospital ER, negative culture, sent home with antibiotics anyhow, then spent several months battling the insurance bill for the "non-emergency" visit.

    Which issue of Woman's Day?

    I picked up the April issue of Woman's Day and could not find the article. Maybe because I have a Canadian issue? My copy says April 17, 2007 and has colorful Easter eggs on the front.

My brother was in Med school at the time I was going from doctor to doctor trying to figure out what I had. He said that IC was just barely mentioned. Since then he said it is amazing how many people he has run into that have IC. Med Schools have got to start educating our doctors about IC. OK, I will get off my soap box now.

    Actually, I think some med schools MUST be making more a big deal out of it. When I went in for my annual at my gyn's office, they gave me one of the physicians aids (basically a student gyn). When she was poking my stomach etc. before the exam she asked me about any conditions or medications I tentatively said (because I was expecting a cross examination over this...

    "Well, I have interstitial cystitis...."
    "I can tell, your bladder is a bit tough and very tender."

    And that was IT!!! She was TOTALLY familiar with the condition, and made no fuss whatsoever. Every other gyn/ or other doctor I've had has either just recently read about it in a journal and therefore asks a lot of questions, or have never heard about it and asks a lot of questions. I was in shock..... So I think I'm going to start LOOKING for younger doctors if the need ever arises again.
