    Hmmm. Similar in principle to the Interstim, n'est ce pas?
    Je vous souhaite de la joie, de la bonne santée, et tout ce qu'il y a de bon dans la vie.
    Wishing you happiness and good health, and all the best out of life.

    Peace, Carolyn

      Yeah but for pain management!

      Urgency and burning may actually improve at the same time i guess.

        You know, I don't know. I think I would hesitate, especially if my doctor is not familiar with it. But it's an interesting idea. Would you do it, do you think?

          I don't know any place in Canada for now.
          I wonder what the price of the trial would be.

              I have a friend who has it pain control for crohn's disease. She said it was her life saver. However... my guess is it's as much of a crap shoot as InterStim. She was an integral part in my decision to go for my trial.

                I do have pubic burning that maybe reachable by Precision BUT what about the male form of VV.It's not just discomfort,it's sensitivity and irritation.

                Perhaps if pubic burning improve the male form of VV will improve too as it is truly close area.I did search about it quite extensivly and it seems to be the terminal branch of the pudendal nerve irritated.

                Sometimes i wonder if it is bladder pain.It seems to come from my lower sigmoid colon.Gas simply get trapped there creating discomfort.Precision apparently creat a "vibration" where the pain is perhaps helping gas to expell i guess....
