7x a day definitely beats the 20+ a day I was going with UC. Along with those 20 trips was pain, urgency, unpredictability, sharts... it was no way to live...
and being med free and free of the medical expenses I was incurring is a huge plus. Being free of the steroids, has been a dream. Free of the weight I was carrying from them for those years is the icing on the cake.
Congratulations. I hope you continue to participate in the forum to show what can be possible for others.
BTW going 7 times a day isn't so bad considering that most of us have to pee that often anyway.
