    She posted a couple of weeks ago and said that she was in one of the worst fibro flares. I'm guess that she still is because she hasn't really been around since that post.

    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!)

            Hi guys,

            I've had a really rough time of it lately and have spent most of my time in the bed. I manage to get myself up when my kids get home, get dinner made, then sit and watch TV with Tom for a while, then it's back to bed again. I'm finally starting to feel a little bit better and stronger. I hate that I keep disappearing, but I honestly have not had the energy to get on the computer at all. I had so many emails I thought they would never end when I just downloaded them all a little while ago.

            My IC was also acting up, along with the fibro flare. I just didn't have the spare energy to sit in this chair.

            I'm sorry I left you guys wondering, yet again, where I was.

            Hugs, Sandy

            04/17/09 Crohn's disease almost killed me with a combo of extreme constipation from pain medications. My bowel ruptured, I almost died from peritonitis and spent several days in the ICU then more in a private room on the floor. If you have any questions about severe constipation from pain meds please don't hesitate to send me a message.
