    Foley is even more prone to infection and less comfortable. She has had them over the years for multiple hospital visits and surgeries. The latest specialist says it is not PBS but Pudendal and inguinal neuralgia, the later most likely due to a C-Section mistake many years ago. PT is the first step but will probably require surgery at some point.

    What treatments have been tried? Is she following an IC diet? Has she tried a foley catheter?

  • Can a suprapubic catheter help during extreme flares?

    After suffering with constant urge over the last two plus years and trying almost every conceivable treatment, I find myself in the midst of an unbearable flare, and finding no relief whatsoever. Has anyone tried a suprapubic catheter during times like these and found relief? My doctor was skeptical that it would work, but I feel like I've read about people having some success with these. I'm at the end of my rope and would do anything for a little relief and sleep.
Working...
