Hi everyone! My was diagnoised with IC Septeber 2011. After countless tests and experimental medicine I finially got a urologist to listen to me and my symptoms. I am struggling with the IC diet because most of the foods that I used to eat are on the "Caution" list. I find that if i have even an ounce of regular soda I will be in horrible pain. I am on Toviaz and Elivil. I am only 28 years old and my doctor doesnt want me to be on the Elmeron (sp?).
Im just trying to take it day by day and look to these types of groups for support and advice. I also have PCOS and am Diabetic so I am finidng my food list is shorter and shorter and the pressure to lose weight is intense. My doctor has directly linked IC to a hormonal imbalance and if i were to get my weight down, my PCOS will be under control and my hormones will get back to level and more than likely my IC will go into hiding.
Good luck to everyone and I look forward to reading your advice! :)
Team Baby!! Im losing weight so I can get pregnant easier.
