1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

I.C. is manifested normally with annoying bladder symptoms.
.& we can talk about that at length. However,this clinical entity may involve the URETHRA only ! I have seen reports of urethral involvement previously in British literature. My treatment is to have urethral dilatation by specialist aware of this ill-definedcondition.Additiona to squirt a dab of Lidocaine in urethra 1-2 times/day
