    oh wow!

    Thanks for the reply, you have encouraged me as the fear of actually going through with this is starting to set in. I have made up my mind, I just hope that I will have success.

    I was real sore when I woke up yesterday from surgery but they gave me pain meds and that takes the edge off. Today I am sore but I am up and walking. The hardest thing and what hurst the most is sitting on my left side where the interstim is at. It has helped so much though. I can't believe the difference. Even with the trial when I would shut it off to shower I had the feeling I had to go potty. As soon as I got dried off and turned it back on, It felt great and back to the way it should be

    I have never had the Interstim, (since pain is my big problem, instead of urgency and freq), but I just want you to know that I am rooting for you too! I hope that you will be one of the Interstim success stories and I will be reading a post on that board soon, written by you.

    Please keep us posted on your progress. I hope you get alot of relief from this.

    Many hugs,
    Amy

    Oh to clarify Cindy,

    I have severe urgency-frequency. He said that my bladder was neurogenic?

    I have decided to go for it. I have done research, read all the posts here, ordered an info packet, called in on a teleconfrence, understand the risk and the expense, watched the movie. I have decided to do this because I owe it to myself to get the best treatment available. I have been suffering for 6 years, so this was an easy choice for me. I have been thinking about it for some time, and as the meds kept failing, diet hasn't worked, instill, cysto and biofeedback was usless this was a good try. I already talked to my family, my grandfather did research and he called becuase he thought I had incontinence and felt bad. hehe Jake knows he will have lots of responsibilities during the recovery period.I have made up my mind and I have been praying that this is the right choice. My gut tells me yes, and I know I will regret not doing it. Thanks for listening and looking out for my best intrest.

    He sure sounds like a sweetheart. Very compassionate.

    I hope the PT helps you - I wonder if 2 weeks will be long enough to really see results before making a decision about the Interstim?
