    I am so glad that I read these success stories about the insterm. I am thinkng about going to have it done if it helps me. I gave the doc the ok to set it up it takes a few days to set everything up. I am doing alot of research and asking alot of questions about it.

    That's great news, Jess!! It is good to hear some success stories. Others have had such difficult times with the device, so it's great to hear that you did your research, the trial, and now have found some success. This will give you energy to work on the other problems.

    Sending an angel for you!

    Jess-------I am sooooooooooooooooo glad that the
    interstim is working for you. I just celebrated my 1 year anniversary last week. It is really
    nice to have your life back again! Just be sure to take it easy until you are completely healed. I know that it's hard to do, but so worth it!

    Hi Jane and Carly-- hi

    Well I am currently not working and trying to get SSD because on top of the IC I have Fibro and that is making life pretty miserable. But about the Interstim and SSD--I don't think they can turn you down because of that, because it isn't a cure and it doesn't help with pain. I might be wrong, but Brat has the Interstim and is on SSD. Hope this helps.

    I really wanted the Interstim to work for you! Keep me posted.

    Hugs and love,
    Jess

    I am very happy for you that it worked. As you know it did not work for me. I had fantasies about being able to work again. Do you work or are you on disability. Does SS think just because you have the interstim that you are not disabled?

    Congradulations!! I am so glad that the interstim is working for you!!! You can try to avoid the flares by watching what you eat and lots of water.
    I am so happy for you.
