  • IC name change

    I was on my way home from the uro yesterday (3 hour drive) and started thinking about the name change to Painful Bladder Syndrome and who it was pushing the change. It was the Europeans, I think.
    I thought of the joke which maybe some of you have heard:
    If you live in the United States, what are you when you are in your living room?
    American

    ... What are you when you are in your dining room?
    American

    ...What are you when you are in your kitchen?
    American

    ...What are you when you are in your bathroom?
    European (Your a peeing)
    Sounds like 3rd grade humor, but I got a little laugh out of it.

    So I guess that's why it's the Europeans changing the name. That was my lame connection.

    It might be 3rd grade humor, but it took me several times saying it for it to make sense to me.

        I have been diagnoised for 6 1/2 years now. I have taken a long break from the ICN but really miss helping out my fellow IC patients and want to get back into posting.
        1st hydro 4/07 showed no visible signs of IC but tons of mast cells in all my biopsy samples which did prove IC.
        2nd hydro 4/13/09 showed dark purple glomerulations and I had a capacity of 450 cc's. This hydro proved that my IC had progressed.
        I have tried every oral medication as well as rescue instills and DMSO.

        I have been lucky enough to see Dr Hanno, the top IC specialist in PA who has told me due to the fact that I have not responded to any "standard" treatments that I have a severe, end stage case of IC with a horrible quality of life (didn't have to tell me that last part!)

          Well, that explains my situation! I am from Europe. No wonder I'm a-peein' all the bloody time!
          Je vous souhaite de la joie, de la bonne santée, et tout ce qu'il y a de bon dans la vie.
          Wishing you happiness and good health, and all the best out of life.
