  • More Interstim Questions...

    First of all, thank you all of you who are providing me with such invaluable information and comforting me through this whole process. I have basically decided that I AM going to have the test trial. When I watched the video they stated that the patient should not be on any muscle relaxants during the test trial or the implant b/c it will interfere with the muscle response. Does this include benzos (ativan/valium) b/c I take one or the other everyday twice a day and would probably be unable to empty my bladder at all and be in horrible disconfort w/o them. Also, would I be able to take the ativan/valium and my urised when I do my pre-trial and trial voiding logs? Or do they want you to be basically med-free which I do not think I could tolerate for more than a day. Finally, how many of you had the test leads implanted with the use of a fluoroscopy? Thank you all soooooo much again!!!! I always know I can come here for support and information. I hope everyone's having a good day

    Nancy~ask your uro about the ativan. I took one before I went, not knowing you weren't suppose to (this is the 1st I've heard of it). I have severe panic attacks and I KNEW I wouldn't make it thru the trial without the medication.

      Well my uro said that I could use the Ativan when I do my voiding log before the trial and during but that I couldn't take any right before the procedure b/c it could mask muscle activity. But he said I could take one right afterwards. How anxiety provoking
