Probably not: Ic is not a very localized disease. There a number of therapies involving drugs, intravesical medications, neruo therapies etc. You shoudl seek the guidance of specialists who see a lot of these patients. Seek some help from :http://www.Ichelp.Org.

IC: Ic is a condition of unknown etiology and can be affected by hormonal changes that occur during menstruation. Removing the uterus will not change those hormonal changes. You might check with your gyn about the possibility of endometriosis causing your symptoms instead of ic.
