I have been to so many doctors and specialists to see what was wrong with me. It took becoming incontinent and going to a urologist, she sent me to a PT that worked with pelvic floor rehabilitation. I was going there once a week for manual inner vaginal muscle pressure. Then my state insurance stopped paying for it. I have a pain dr that prescribes me medication and that's it. And that barely helps.
I am reaching out to hear ANYTHING that I can do at home to help. I am single so I will have to do everything myself. Is there any exercise YouTube videos that have helped? Self outer massage? Exercises that your therapist has given you to do at home? Taking a bath is not comfortable, I am thinking of one of those "sitz bath" things that go on the toilet, (I also need recommendations for a good one that is deep so I can also use hot water or steam) I am 122 lbs. I have always eaten good and was healthy before, but any help for constipation would be appreciated. I have added psyllium husks and drink lots of water. Need to get a better donut to sit on. Also I need some kind of "Therawand" I have seen different types, the Intimate Rose one looks good. She also has one with vibration, (although I have already "vibrating" in pain) maybe it would feel good? Need suggestions for that because it is too hard to reach comfortably with my finger. I also read the book "Healing your pelvic pain" that was OK but the exercises were too hard and not enough description as far as outer massage or inner. Meditation CD's?
I guess I have written enough. Cant afford PT. Maybe my insurance will pay for a nerve block. Please, I scan the support network for home care and it just gets depressing. Thank you all! Kat in WA state USA, F. 58
