    Re: Electrocautery & Interstim

    My dr gave me info for InterStim treatment by Medtronic. Has anyone had this done and has it helped you? Also want to know the cons of having this treatment. Thank you.

      I think if you search old posts, you'll find lots of info. I've had one since 2004, and it definitely helps. There are drawbacks, of course, as with any treatment. It's been my most successful treatment to date (tried 26 before getting Interstim).
      IC & fibromyalgia since ~'77. Osteoarthritis since ~'88. Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia Purpura (autoimmune blood disease) since '96. IBS for who knows how long. Interstim implant 2/04, revised 6/06, replaced 11/12 & again in 9/17. Antibodies to thyroid since at least '92 (finally diagnosed & treated 1/06). Asthma & vocal cord dysfunction 12/06. Hypoglycemia '07. Perimenopausal at 37, menopause at 45. Pituitary & adrenal failure. Osteopenia. Grade 3 sacral fracture by S3-S4 at age 12, healed 14mm out of place.
