HI, I am 34 years old and I had a hysterectomy last July 2011 and the minute I woke up from surgery I immediately had bladder pain. When I informed the nurse her response was "it's normal due to the catheter". Well it wasn't 7 months later I am now diagnosed with Intersitital Cystitis, I NEVER had any bladder problems prior to my surgery. I would like to know if there is anyone else out there with similar issues. I'm contemplating in seeking legal advise.
Hi, yes I agree something is going on here. I've tried obtaining an attorney for a possible law suit but unfortunately two have turned me down as there isn't much info on IC. I think we need to unite and do something about it.
The pain is horrible and not to mention ongoing doctor visits and medication has become so expensive. Please anyone who has had luck finding more info on the causes or seeking legal advise please reply.View Thread
Hi, I had my hysterectomy last year in July 2011 and I immediately began to feel the bladder pain. After numerous doctors visits and medication I was just diagnosed with IC last month. This wasn't part of the risks that were included so I'm now curious if I should obtain an attorney. I never had any problem with my bladder and I also use the restroom at least 30x's a day and 10 at night. I'm only 34 and now have this condition for the rest of my life. I would like to hear from you and see if you have had any improvements.
