  • Toilet wiggle...

    This is getting ridiculous! How many of you have to do the 'toilet wiggle' to empty your bladder?? This is a new thing for me...side to side and touch your toes...LOL

      LOL sometimes I have to do the blot with toilet paper to make more come out or lean really far farward and touch my toes, it just varies.

      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!)

        That makes me feel better guys... I am in the middle of a bad flare and all of a sudden I can't quite get my bladder empty the normal way...and was just wondering if this happened to other people.

            LOL I do the lifting one butt cheek. Turning on the water in the sink helps as well. Also standing up and then sitting back down. I'm sure there are many others out there with my funny and inventive ways. I hope they post soon and share their tips. I need a good laugh today.

              For IC I use Elmiron, Elavil and Freeze dried Aloe Vera (it works likes Elmiron, but naturally)and Azo as needed. I also take Zegerid, Randitine for Barrett's Esophagus. (which causes me to have constant yeast infections!)I take Cymbalta for Neuopathy/Myopathy pain. I use the Climara patch for menopause symptoms. I'm on a very strict diet because of the IC, IBS and Gastric Bypass. I take Primal Defense Probiotics and whole food Iron.
              I no longer have the awful urethral pain! I've been using MSM gel now for 4 mo. and haven't had a flare up or the urethra pain.....it's amazing stuff!!:woohoo:

                Its looks a bit like a Cirque Du Soleil performance when I'm in the bathroom.

                    and it's too bad though that we don't get crazy & beautiful outfits for our performances! no standing ovations either. no one can really witness and appreciate our talents.

                      LeeAnn--perhaps you need to buy you some interesting and flashy loungewear and have it be your performance outfit. When I'm home I can always be found in my colorful loungepants. Designs that I have consist of: Pepsi Cola, Stewie from Family Guy, Dr Pepper, Beer Nuts, a pair that has tons of small horse shoes on them, a pair with chili peppers all over them; the list goes on and on, i'm sure you get the picture.
                      I expect a standing ovation from everyone who happens to be in my house at the time after my 'performance', and if I've had to perform longer than usual I expect cash! $$$$$

                      Kidding of course about the cash, though its a darned good idea!

                        Funny, I'm guilt of the bending forward thing. I'll have to consider the outfits myself.
