  • Wondering why there aren't more success stories with interstim?

    My MIL got the interstim for her OAB back about 6 months ago and she said it has made a big difference in her frequency and she never has accidents anymore. I talked to the PA at my uro's office about it one day and he said they have had ALOT of success with it for frequency. He's the one who does it. He says it's changed people's lives! Just think it's kinda weird more people don't have it here, since he said alot of his patients were ICers with frequency issues. He said it would not help much for pain.

        Not sure if it's true or not but I heard the new Interstims are better than the ones when they first came out and alot of people are replacing their old with newer ones.
