  • Doc suggested interstim

    Hey guys, just checkin in and lookin for feedback. Went to Uro today. Ive been on Elmiron for 8 months and elavil and hydroxyzine for a couple months. He asked me to think about the interstim. My main symptoms are frequency and the dreaded feeling of thinking i have to go to bathroom but really dont. I have pain but not a lot and not all day so that is tolerable. The other stuff isnt tolerable. Thoughts on my doc's opinion ??

    The interstim isn't usually considered until all other treatments have been tried and failed. The only suggestion I have for you is to do your research first --- look at both the positives and negatives --- before making a decision.

    Warm well wishes,
    Stay safe
