Finally managed to get a referral for my symptoms of interstitial cystitis which have plagued me on and off for 12 years but Have in the past been continually fobbed off with antibiotics.
My consultant is lovely, he listened to me as if I knew what I was talking about, asked me simple questions and within 5 minutes he agreed that all the signs suggested that I do have IC and is booking me in to hospital for a day to have a biopsy of my bladder. I agreed immediately as I would love to kick this into touch, well manage it better but now I have come home I am panicking slightly.
Has anyone had this, I will have a GA but I am concerned about the discomfort afterwards. Also, is the biopsy to rule out cancer????
Any information, good or bad would help me to prepare for this so please don't hold back
It would be great to get this under control so that I can then concentrate on my other numerous issues .... The joy of having autoimmune diseases
