Hello Everyone,

Thought I would give you an update...July 5, I saw my 3rd Urogynecologist for my Unbearable Pelvic/Bladder Pain. He said it looked like Pelvic Trauma & Dysfunction. Ordered me to follow-up with Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy 8-12 times a week for at least 3-months. The therapist is on vacation till the end of the month.

The pain is horrible, so I made an appointment with my Primary Internal Medicine Doctor for this morning. She did an exam and it was so painful, I cried. She took cultures of my female parts and then she called the Urogynecologist that I saw on the 5th. He decided to call in a prescription of Valium w/a certain compound. Only 1-pharmacy makes and provides this medication and doesn't except my Insurance (which I have met my deductible so I wouldn't have too pay anything). So apparently it will take a couple days to make this certain compound and the script will cost $90. They do have 2-days worth already made and will give that to me for now.

I'm am praying that this medication will work or I don't know what I will do if it doesn't. Thank you for letting me vent.

Sorry to hear that are having so much pain. I cant even imagine what you are going thru. Even when I have a urinary tract infections or kidney infections I am such baby.

Have you contacted your insurance company about the med? Maybe they will reimburse you considering the " approved" pharmacies dont make it.

Hoepfully this med will do the trick!

Hi Serenitee~~

I will add a prayer for you tonight to help your pain problems begin to resolve. Your doctors should be doing a better job of finding you some relief until they can remedy the problem.

Thank you for your kind words I truly needed that. I started the medication which happens to be in suppository form for vaginal area. But so far it has helped some with the pain. I'm hoping it continues to work. I'm so panicked that it will stop working and then not know what to do...but just trying to take one step at a time.
Wishing all the best for both of you as well.

        Oh Serenitee, i am so glad that your new med is helping some. I sure hope it continues that way for

        for you. I can't remember if you are on any narcotics for pain or what have you tried? Have they tried

       any meds for bladder spasms? i think ditropan is one??

  Let us know how things keep going for you.

  Hugs, Suzane

Have you been checked for endometriosis (surgically) or interstitial cystitis? Pelvic pain is awful, I hope they find something that helps you soon.
