  • Evansville or the tristate area? anyone?

    I always look here to see if anyone is nearby me but no such luck for a over year. Thought I'd get it started in case someone else was just looking and hadn't posted where they are from. Love to talk with others who are nearby!

      i live in terre haute,indiana which isn't too far from evansville.i too always like someone else close by to talk to it makes it easier. i had an older lady who has been a long time friend of my family.she had ic too but mostly pain with frequency but she died a few years ago so i miss her.it was nice to have someone else who knew what i was going through because my family doesn't understand.

              I only went back once after my hydro last year. Ill not mention the guys name because he scared the crap out of me. I didnt get put under nor did I get any meds when he did the hydro. I tried another doc at a different clinic, but no luck with him either. I think Ill try that guy in Dekalb if I ever need to see a doc for IC. I just hope it would be worth the 3 hour drive.

                I see Dr. Ulrich in Muncie. He's got a great bedside manner. I really like him. We have a new uro in town, too, who seems equally as nice. My hubby saw him for a kidney stone. I don't know his IC experience.

                        I am a 3 year IC patient, but just recently joined the Network. I live in Newburgh. I am currently in a huge flare and would love to know who treats you. I really like my doc, but would be open to someone else who maybe specializes in IC.

                            I currently see Janet Lang who is an RN at Gateway bladder division. She gets all her directives from one of the top IC Dr. His name escapes me right now. I want to say though he is out west San Fran maybe. I think Janet is wonderful. Luckily I haven't had the need to see her much lately as I try to handle things myself. I'm too fearful to try anything that might make things worse for me. Who do you see? I had a horrific experience with a uro in Eville, dearly hope you don't see him.

                              I had heard of her. My thoughts were that if things got worse or if there is something new to treat IC in the coming years I would try to get to Madisonville to see her. Glad to hear even more good recommendations on her. Thanks
