    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    IC (Interstitial cystitis) flaring -- UGH! Have a bladder study scheduled for 6/14, so urologist doesn't want to change or give me any meds that could effect that test, which is understandable, but that also means no relief to this pain. Just gotta make it through this flare and hope no more between now and testing!

    I have changed my diet and have been on Elmiron for almost a month, but haven't noticed any changes from day to day.

    Ronniebear, so sorry to hear about your IC flare.

    Is there any way the urologist could move your appointment up so you don't have to wait two more weeks? Or maybe you could ask to be put on a waiting list in case anyone ahead of you cancels?

    Let us know how you're doing,
