  • Excellent article on IC/PFD by Dr. Moldwin

    http://www.bio-medical.com/news_display.cfm?newsid=47

    It has great self care tips. He explains it in such a way that I understand it better. I think.

    I apologize if it's been posted before or is already on this site and I missed it.
    8/2007 - My constant bladder pain is now gone due to a surgery where the ilioinguinal and iliohypogastic nerves were cut. I still have IC symptoms but they are improving. It's still early to say, but I believe this solution will work permanently for me.

    Symptoms since 2005 - 24/7 abdominal pain, cold sweats, low back pain, vulv, etc.
    Surgeries: Spinal Fusion L4-L5-S1 10/97, Anterior spinal fusion L5-S1 9/05, Lap for Cysts, Endo 9/06, Hysterectomy kept cervix 12/06
    Meds: Morphine, Neurontin, Valium, Hydroxyzine, Vivelle Estrogen, Thyroid,
    Exercise & PT: All at least 4 times a week
    Whirlpool baths, Moist heat, Treadmill, Stretching, Trigger point, Yoga Positions; Ab & Pelvic Massage

    I think I read this article when I was going to my therapy. Really great article. I think it's essential to have a good understanding of how IC & PFD are related if people want to control IC flare.

        Thanks leelee! Same here, I think my PFD is worse than my IC. I've read his book but that article explained it better. I've read that article about three times and find something I missed earlier each time.

        I'm trying to follow what he recommends in it. Are you doing any of the PT, relaxation, trigger point or baths that he suggests?

              Hi Janie Miranda, do you mind me asking what put you in remission? Did you have PFD therapy? Do you think your TENS just put a band aid on pain, or did it help solve your problem?

              Or, was it a combination of meds and diet and PT?
