mrsm123, I'm SO sorry that you have to go through all that! I'm not near that bad, and I can't imagine having to cath yourself every 4 hours, wow, I'm so sorry :( Thank you very much for your advice and support!
Scared_for_life and Pamela Neckpain, thank you for the advice, that is very helpful! I appreciate the support!! Oh, and Pamela Neckpain, I think it was PALady that said, "we'd all die before getting a proper diagnosis", and I believe that too!! LOL! That was good advice as well, because for some of us, we want to know, "WHAT" is causing this or that, I guess so that we can find out more about it, but they don't always know, they are human too! I know from a medical point of view, that it's not always "textbook" and some doctors try to believe that that is what they will find, but that's not always true!! A good doc will find out more, will do the research, and will tell you what they think, not just treat because they think it's this or that!! I wish doctors underwent a better system, for compassion, for intelligence, and for those that are willing to continue to learn and research!! But, hey, we don't live in that kind of world!! Sorry about the rant!! LOL!
Also, I was just talking with my boyfriend about going to see another Urologist, wouldn't they start all over again with the testing? I don't want to go through all that again!! The one I had was an older guy, that was supposedly very well known and good, and I'll tell you, I know it's medical, but to be sitting like you're at a OB office and having someone in your "area", is very uncomfortable, even if it was a female doc!! I just don't want to go through that again!! Maybe if I bring my other docs paperwork? But then if he wants to get another look, I have to do it again!! That was very uncomfortable, and made me feel like I had to go, ALL day! I hated it!! LOL!! (I didn't clarify, I'm talking about the bladder scope that they do)
Thanks again for everyone's help and support, those are very good things to think of, and I will start keeping a set of pants, or whatever with me!! LOL! And Pamela Neckpain, I like that add on with the tissue!! LOL!! I like that, but you are SO right!! Thanks all!
Good luck to all!
