    It is sadly exactly for these reasons and my own bad care I received that I have no faith or trust in doctors anymore! And that's sad.....

    You have every right to be mad. I never realized until IC how many doctors are ignorant, rude, and just plain bad doctors. It definitely is a problem for us ICers.

    Your not alone feeling like things could have been caught earlier since they were brought to the doctors attention but instead were dismissed!

    I mean I suspect my PFD was known by my gastro back in 1990 but no one recommended pt...and now PFD has progressed to prolapse!

    Feel for you!

    Trust me, i could write the book on bad gyns! I saw about a dozen of of them over 13 years before being diagnosed with endometriosis and another 6 gyns before being diagnosed with IC. I've been told that the symptoms are 'just a woman thing,' that the pain's all in my head, and have been told by 4 gyns that i need a hysterectomy. To me, that's not just bad doctoring, but negligence.

    I really wish there were more understanding docs out there who don't just write us off as 'hysterical females.' IC is a very real, very painful and very common condition. You'd think they'd be taught more about it in med school...

    add me to the list of moron gyns. mine told my husband that there was nothing wrong with me. I was only seeking his attention, take me home and explain to me that there is nothing wrong. needless to say at the tome he stayed drunk, and caused a massive fight between us.. some people are not cut out to be doctors. ((((((((((((((hugs))))))))))))))))))

    You know what makes me REALLY mad?

    I have severe pelvic floor dysfunction for which I am in therapy. PFD causes a lot of my pelvic pain. PFD is more painful than my IC right now.

    What makes me mad is that after I had my daughter almost 4 years ago I KNEW something was wrong. I would go to my gynocologist and asked her if I looked right, was I sewn up wrong etc....and she said I was "fine." I even told her that I was leaking some urine and that I couldn't hold a tampon in. As soon as anything hit the tampon it would literally fall out. I TOLD her this & her general attitude was, "yup, that can happen after you have a baby."


    I will ALWAYS wonder what would have happened had I had a doctor who said, "NO, that's NOT normal, you need PT" if I'd be where I am today. Would I be here with severe pelvic pain and IC?

    I know it doesn't matter to wonder such a thing but I really feel like my medical care was poor these past 4 years. How many other women are suffering under this gynocologist b/c she is ignorant to PFD and/or IC??

    Makes me mad!!!
