    I also considered having my bladder out, as severe pain is my major symptom. I elected not to do it, as I believe the nerves are damaged and was worried that the pain wouldn't go away. Most here have said that the bladder removal was more for urgency/frequency. I went for 20 years in pain until I finally found something that helped. I'm on 25mg of nortriptylene at night. It's been a miracle for me. I've also tried Elmiron, Vistaril, and a myriad of other things. So, don't give up until you've exhausted all the options. LDS
