I'm Jessica, a 35 year old mother of two. I have been having issues with my bladder for years. I finally got some answers to my pain and suffering. I was diagnosed with I.C. and was given prescription medications to take. After all the testing over the years my doctors have come to the conclusion my bladder is bad. They tried to stretch out my bladder but all the could get was 80cc of fluid. I'm now faced with the decision to live with all my bladder issues or have it taken out. They can't make me a new bladder because it would get I.C. and the surgery wouldn't help. So if they do the surgery I'll have a Urostomy. I'm still in shock that this was even an option. I'd like to connect with others so I can get as much information as possible before I make my final decision.
