  • Need Urologist

    I'm visiting my father in Olympia while recovering from surgery. I had my occipital nerve stimulator removed in Seattle. Afterward I had to sit constantly for a week because I was unable to lie down or stand. It triggered a massive IC flare (sitting does that to me even after 10 minutes). I'm having awful urethral spasms and worsened bladder pain.

    I want to find a urologist that specializes in IC around here. Does anyone know of one? I'm willing to go to Seattle if need be.

    Thanks!
