I have interstitial cystitis which consists of extreme discomfort in the bladder, feeling like only urinating will help it, but it only partially does. I also have high tension in the pelvic floor and am having physical therapy for that, but they are so booked up that I only get to see the "internal therapists" when they have cancellations. I have spasms which are no fun.
Yesterday I had a cystoscopy and the doctor said besides inflammation in the bladder (no surprise), my small fibroid, which I already knew about, is bulging into my bladder. He suggests putting myself half-way upside down when I have the awful pressure to see if it gives me relief, but he is suggesting hysterectomy. He does it by putting cameras on the belly and taking everything out vaginally. I was sort of emotionally adjusting to this, but got online and read that some women are having the same problems that I already have! Like pain sitting, spasms, and uncomfortable bladder. Does anyone out there have experience with this kind of hysterectomy and any feedback?
I also have bad leg pain and no diagnostic answers and the "pain" specialists, who I think are awful, refuse to give anything to help with the pain. The alternatives that they suggest give me bad side effects and do not help anyway.
