Hello all.

I suffer with frequency I can go upto 25 times a day sometimes. I have no pain or other symptoms just that. I have tried various meds but no luck.

Im booked in for a bladder stretch under GA tomorrow and after reading things online im terrified as Im not ill or in pain its just the frequency.

I really don't know wether to go ahead, are there any success stories or any advice?

Many thanks Nicola x

I was diagnosed with Interstitial Cystitis (IC) in 1995.  I have had a Cystoscopy with hydrodistention under anesthesia on many occasions over the years.  The first few times I had hydrodistention, I actually got some relief.  However, over the years, I did not have much success with this procedure.  It is natural to be worried.  If you have confidence in your doctor you should be fine.  Please follow up with us after you have had the procedure. 

Recently, I started a blog to share my story and experiences with IC, and hopefully, provide support and encouragement to others who suffer from IC or any chronic disease for that matter.  Having a great support system will help as you deal with this.  Look forwarding to hearing from you.
