Re: baffled by bladder problem
thanks for your reply!
we are at a stage now where we are banging our heads against a brick wall. i've written a letter of complaint to our gp with regards to the lack of process on this, but i've been told we've just got to wait. it takes on average 4-6 weeks for each referal and the same again for any results. it's a joke as. we are concerned for her health not just physically but mentally too. again this has been expressed to our gp. interstitial cystitis is a possibilty that we have not yet looked at. my only concern is that her symptoms to not match. she only gets pain after she has emptied her bladder and 9 times out of 10 it does not empty fully. there is no urgency either, she's able to control it pretty well. there is a chance she could have over stretched her bladder muscles but they just wont look into it. i will mention interstitial cystitis on our next visit to the gp. another thing that has cropped up many a time is endometriosis but as nothing shows on the scans she has had, they won't look into it further. it is a known fact that the only way to diagnose endometriosis is by a laparoscopy, i have asked for this but they will not carry one out. like interstitial cystitis, the symptoms of endometriosis are very similar.
