Stage 3 prolasped bladder and interstitial cy
I have IC and stage 3 prolasped bladder and need to know if my bladder can be lifted with the IC problem. I have been to several specialists and they don`t have an answer for me. I can`t afford to keep going to all of these different doctors and get no help regarding this problem. Please help.
The only indication for bladder prolapse repair is if you have stress urinary incontinence or you carry excessive residual urine. In that case, you may consider the diagnosis of IC to be not a valid one. I suggest if you have no symptoms related to bladder prolapse, do nothing about it or consider pessary.
