I have suffered for over 15 years, on and off with what were thought to be uti's and was given the usual antibiotics, however to cut a long story short, I managed to get the gp to refer me to a urologist as I have suspected for some time that I have interstitial cystitis and he agreed, which in a way is good as I can stop taking needless antibiotics.
In order to confirm the diagnosis, I have to have a bladder biopsy under general anaesthetic. I am petrified to say the least of the pain I might endure afterwards as when I am suffering from an attack, I would quite happily let the doctors cut me open and take it out without being put to sleep
Can anyone tell me what I can expect? Could it cause a flare? Do the wounds heal quickly? I have a low white cell and neutrophil count before you even begin!
Any help would be appreciated
