  • Bad flare up

    I'm having a bad flare & it's been a year since I've been in this much pain. I feel like such a burden & I'm so irritable to my husband & kids because the pain is so bad. I'm really tempted to have my bladder removed. I haven't had sex in over a year & don't think I'll ever again have any kind of sex life with my husband. I just want the pain to go away, I've had IC for 20 years. I think it's time for me to have my bladder removed.

    Are you on any treatments? Following an IC diet? While I agree that bladder removal is sometimes the only alternative, it should really be the last resort.

    I hope you feel better soon.

    Stay safe

      How have you managed it this long?
      I'm 21 and was diagnosed last year after my first pregnancy. I'm constantly in pain. It's unbearable most days I can't get off of the couch!!!
      Have you ever had a piece of your bladder removed???
      Or anything like that?
