  • Surgery next week

    I have scheduled surgery on the 18th for Coaptite injections. On month 3 of Elmiron, not seeing any results yet, but know that it can take some time. Also sticking with the IC diet, again not seeing any changes, but I didn't really eat or drink many of the things on the NO list. Also taking Vesicare, again, no changes other than being really thirsty all the time, which doesn't help with the incontinence issues.

    Having alot of lower back/hip pain and still just suffering through the IC pain. I do my best to not let it effect my work schedule or plans with the family, but sometimes it just gets to be too much and I sadly what suffers are the plans with the family as I just can't afford to miss work.

    Still praying for a miracle that healing will come!
