How prevalent are cases of post catheter removal interstitial cystitis in women and what is the prognosis?
Not unusual, curable: Sadly, not unusual Happily, curable. Definitely see the Dr for confirmation of Dx and follow directions for treatment.

What medications cause cystitis? I'm having a cystoscopy for interstitial cystitis next week, but wonder if some of my meds are contributing..
Watch your diet!: I agree but would add that certain foods and drinks can really aggravate your ic discomfort. I usually ask patients when they have flares if they have started any new medications and on occasion have found meds that worsen the symptoms. If you have been on the medication for a while it is unlikely that it would suddenly start causing new problems. Ask your doctor if he has a diet sheet for ic.See 3 more doctor answers

Breakdown in GAG: There is a breakdown in the gag layer of the bladder. Gag stands for glucoseaminoglycan and it is a microscopic layer that is supposed to help with protection of the mucous layer of the bladder.

Trigger points!!: This is a new look at an old idea. Janet g. Travell, md a pain pioneer concluded that chronic tissue pain was caused by numerous trigger points in muscle fibers causing the muscles to contract compressing nerves, vessels and alter the flow of lymphatics. The pyramidalis and pelvic floor muscles are the cause. So this is a mechanical cause and requires a manual treatment. Acupuncture! see files.See 1 more doctor answer
Painful Bladder: Ic is a condition that has multiple symptoms. Most common symptoms are frequent urination, urinary urgency and pain in the bladder and pelvic area.
