  • Those Of You Who Have Had Your Bladder Removed

    Did you also have related illnesses, CFS, Fm, IBS? One of my uro's says that these illnesses basically are all related to IC.

    If after you had your bladder removed did your other illnesses subside? Go away in time or do you still suffer with them?

    Your respones will be much appreciated.

    God Bless,

    Serenity isn't freedom from the's peace within the storm.....I had my sick bladder removed Jan 7th 2010.....Even though I had many complications.......I would do it again in a moment.....I have no regrets......Sunflowers in memory of my sister who passed March 14th 2010......they were her favorite....

    I dont think that removing your bladder will make the others illnesses go away. For me, I actually was diagnosed with other things years after my bladder was removed.

      Bladder Removal and Other related conditions

      I agree with Judith. Having your bladder removed is about the bladder and improving issues with the bladder at end stage only. Other illnesses need to be treated by means for that illness in particular.

      For example, I have Endometriosis and Infertility. Those did not improve or have anything to do with having my bladder taken out. I still have those conditions.

      After having my bladder removed, I developed Celiac Disease. So I gained a Disease.

      I also have some journals of my journeys, past and some present at: and

      Most of my Journaling now is currently on Facebook. These are old and my ICN Patient story is very old and outdated.
