I have been suffering with persistent abdominal pain which has in the past been treated as a uti but in January I managed to see a urologist who upon listening to my tail of woe agreed with me and suggested that I had developed interstitial cystitis. In order to be 100% sure about this, they want me to have a bladder biopsy under general anaesthetic. I believe that this could be because they need a lot of samples.
As the time draws nearer, I am getting worried as the pain is excruciating when I have an attack and the thought of them taking bits out would no doubt aggravate the whole system.
Has anyone had one? Can you shed some light on it????
