Interstitial Cystitis (?)
Hi anyone and everyone,
My urologist has been giving me tests because I have not UTI, but still hurt when I pee and also, when I am not. My lower abdomen hurts also. It is not my female parts, because I had most of them out about 8 mo. ago.
Can any of you tell me what Interstitial Cystitis (sp) feels like and how yours was diagnosed? The test that would show if I had this, costs about $3,000. and I have a $5,000. deductible. So, I would have to pay it all.
I just want to be more sure, before I have this test and pay all that money. I have not UTI, but do have scars on my bladder. The test is a ? with video and dye and has to be done at a bigger outpatient hospital. There are only 2 of these machines in the Houston area!
Please let me know if any of you have this or have knowledge of this.
