  • thinking about interstim

    hi ya'll!! my name is melanie. i'm new to this website. i am 24 and have been diagnosed with i.c. i've had it for almost a year now . i don't have any pain ..just really bad urgency all the time. can't do much of anything. i am getting married in 7 months and would like to try interstim cuz i don't want to feel this way any longer..especially on my wedding day. can anyone give me some confidence that this will work? i am scared about doing this. does the test stim hurt? what does it feel like when they move those wires around when you're awake? thanx, melanie

    melanie~what else have you tried? There are alot of different meds that can help with the urgency. Have you had a hydro done? There are so many different things to try and I think that it may be a little too soon to be thinking interstim unless you have had all the other treatment options.

    When I had my implant done it was because I had exhausted ALL other options. Please, let us know about your treatments up until now.

    tons of hugs
    Courage does not always roar. Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow".
