  • Anyone in Northern Colorado?

    Hello all!

    My name is Shelby and I am wondering if any of you are living in Colorado, more specifically Northern Colorado? If so would any of you be interested in forming a support group somewhere in this region. It would be nice to hear from people just like me and share support with each other.

    Let me know!!

    I hope I hear from some of you!

    Hi Shelby,


    I live in Colorado, Colorado Springs that is but I drive to Denver to see a IC specialist up there and there is a support Group up there I have not been to a meeting yet I was just recently diagnosed but plan on attending the next one!

          support groups available

          There are actually 2 support groups in Colorado, one more specifically for northern Colorado and they usually meet in Firestone which is near Longmont. I They don't always meet on a real regular basis.
          Our group in Denver meets pretty much every month and has speakers a lot of the time. e mail me if you want more information: Nancy at [email protected] or feel free to call me at 303 919-5401 if you want to talk personally.

            Hello Shelby,

            Are you still around and still looking for other people with IC in the NOCO region to be able to talk to?

                Hey everyone,

                I live in the Colorado Springs area and if there are any support meetings that happen somewhere around this area I would love to attend. Both to receive support and help give it to others who have IC.

                Thanks!

                  Hi there!

                  Can anyone provide information on the Firestone support group? I live in Fort Collins and that would be an easier drive for me than Broomfield (I already drive to work in Greeley everyday). I used to live in Thornton before I was diagnosed, so it would have been convenient to go to Broomfield then!

                  It sounds like there are quite a few people in Northern Colorado. Maybe we can all meet up sometime for beers and pizza? JK, maybe some water and blueberries?
                  About me: 23 year old female. Diagnosed with IC on 1/30/14

                  Current Medications: Elmiron 100mg 3 times per day before meals | Urelle 4 times per day (as needed) | Macrodantin- as needed after intercourse | Birth Control Pill

                  Symptoms: Urgency/frequency that worsens at night, (unbearable) pain (burning) during and after intercourse, burning/discomfort during period, side pains, and cramps. I have to go to the bathroom about every hour during the day, and I usually only wake up once during the night to go to the bathroom.

                  Tried IC diet in February 2013 with no improvements at all.
                  Tried pelvic floor Physical Therapy with minimal improvements

                      Hello!

                      I'm late to the thread, but I also was wondering if there was anyone in the NoCo area. Does anyone know if there are any active support groups? I am newly diagnosed and would love to meet some people.

                      Thanks
