  • hey joliet area...

    Hey, any Joliet area people out there. I am in need of a new Urologist. I recently was going to Advanced Urology in Joliet and my doctor there has basically given up on me and says there is nothing more that he can do. Now, I refuse to believe this and give up. So, if anyone is in the area and has a great doctor they can recommend I am all ears. I am willing to go to the same practice and see a different doc there. I'm just looking for recommendations from anyone if they have one.

    Thanks
    Sue

    Diagnosed with IC in 2003, PFD in 2009, colitis 2012

    Symptoms: Frequency and bladder retention

    Treatments so far:

    Hydro in 2003 (put me in remission for six years)
    Atarax (didn't really make a difference)
    Flomax (for retention...didn't help)
    DMSO instills (got rid of burning pain...helped a little)
    Pelvic Floor Therapy (2010)
    Cystoprotek (started 08/10) no change

    Currently the pft that I do at home, xanax( to relax my muscles), and urelle when needed has given me a mostly symptom free life!

    I go to a uro/gyne in Naperville. He is fantastic and a very caring man. He is from Park Ridge, but comes to Naperville a couple times a month. He has really been helpful to me-and he was my 3'rd doc. p.m. me if you would like his name, etc.

          Hi sue
          I know that you posted this quite some time ago but I just saw this. I see a doctor also from advanced urology in Joliet il who I've had good luck with. Can I ask which doctor you were seeing? And also who did you end up switching too?
          Been diagnosed since 2011
          Thanks
