I have a cysto scheduled in 2 weeks and am wondering if it is very painful? I had a CMG last week, and it hurt so bad I cried, so I'm scared about the cysto. My Dr. doens't do them under anesthesia.

Also, I've only been to this urologist twice, but the first visit , one of the 1st things he said is, " I don't treat this condition with pain meds" I thought that was strange, he must assume that everyone comes in for drugs. There are some days when I really need pain meds, but so far I've been taking Aleve. Do any of you have Dr's that refuse pain meds for IC patients?

Also, I have heard that some people's IC is so bad, that they can't work, and end up going on disabilty or social security, is this true?  Do any of you have this issue or know someone who does?

Thanks ladies!
