  • Have you tried the DMSO tx? Meds they put into your bladder via cath. Are you taking Elmiron? Although there is no cure for Interstitial Cystitis there are many options to relieve Sx. I highly recommend that you find an Urologist that has experience with IC.

  • Are you considered ESRD? Why can't you take the narcotics? Is it just because of the addiction or the liver damage...? I am not sure what options are available to you. Have you talked to a urologist?
