Urologists can help IC patients with their symptoms and improve their quality of life. Urologists need to look at the entire patient and not focus solely on the bladder. One of the major conditions in conjunction with IC is Pelvic Floor Dysfunction (PFD). The other conditions associated with IC are allergies, fibromyalgia and migraines. PFD is estimated to be present in 70 to 80 percent of IC patients.
It is very important for urologists to keep a track of patient’s progress. Diagnosing IC is a trial and error process, which is something both the urologist and the patient must understand in working together to find a viable solution.
IC is indeed very painful, but proper management and a little support from your family and friends and some support from your urologist can make life as beautiful as it was before you were diagnosed with IC.
