      Rose - if you go to, you can search trials by ailment, etc. It is a very helpful site. I found two studies I have done (well, one I am currently still in) for IC this way.

      From what I've read there, Bion is an implantable microstimulater.

      Good luck Sonja! Keep us informed.

          Hi, cher daisy, welcome! I'm so excited for you, I hope that you have good results from the Bion too! Please feel free to ask me any questions that you might have. It's normal to have lots of questions and to be somewhat apprehensive before any procedure - so let me help!

          Blessings, Lori

            Not the case at all! But I'm glad u replied. Which Bion do u have implanted? Mine was implanted in 2004. The case study was cancelled a year later. I received a revised consent form to sign over and over again.
