Thanks for sharing that tidbit of homeopathic information! Until I got my cancer, I was just very healthy and happy and taking care of myself by avoiding doctors and drinking my teas. Those days are gone forever, but it is nice to hear that other people still get results from homeopathy.

Hootie......just talked to a friend of mine who suffered for years of painful urination and diagnosed with interstitial cystitis.......she finally went to a homeopathic doctor and believe it or not a regimen of marshmallow root tea has made it all go away!!....I've never heard of that but hey whatever works.

Listen to Wendy....and get rid of your urologist...20 days!!!.......I had absolutely NO pain with my cancer.....first symptom i had was gross hemotura....a clot as big as my fist.....cancer is a sneaky little disease that doesn't cause pain until its where it shouldn't be........it really does sound like Interstital Cystitis (sp? sorry Wendy).....Pat
Geezo! Get the cysto already, what is he waiting for?? I hope your uro is a good specialist because the bladder is a very complicated organ that can get complicated problems, chronic pain being one of them. Interstitial cystitis mostly hits women, but men are not immune, and this condition is VERY painful...so much so that cystectomy/bladder removal is actually one of the treatments people get for it! A cysto will show it.
No, I don't think we've had people either from the forum or the private email group that has had this kind of awful, chronic pain you describe.
I hope you find some relief soon, it must be very intrusive in your life...
Good luck with things Hootie.
