  • bloating after hydrodistention

    Is it normal to be bloated after hydrodistention (yesterday). I look 6 months pregant and feel so swollen plus I still have urgency. Does anyone know if that is a normal occurence?

    I personally didn't have any bloating after mine, I had some pain and urgency/frequency but not bloating. Hopefully someone else will chime in and share their experiences. If you are worried about it though I don't think it would be a bad idea to call your uro's answering service and get someone to call you back. Hope you start feeling better soon.

    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!)

      I had severe urinary retention after my hydro and yes I looked 6 months pregnant. It was a very serious situation. Please let your uro know...you probably need to be cathed with a leg bag for a while to give your bladder a break. If your symptoms are still present, I would go to the ER. Let us know how you are doing.
