Did your doc tell you that you have IC (Interstitial Cystitis)? If that's what you have, I have it also. There is treatment for it but apparently no cure at the moment. I never heard of a treatment where they put pins in. Would the pin be to keep the ureter open? He must've dilated your ureter during your cystoscopy/hidrodistention. Anyway, I hope you get better soon!
