I've just read through the conversations on this threads, and am very happy to have done so. I've been struggling with IC for two years now, and have been through 4 sets of instils including Rimsol which was so much agony I stopped after 4 sessions. I've had 3 cystocopies and seen 4 (!) consultants. At the moment I'm with Mrs Hegarty who has clinics in Waterford, Cork and Dublin. Currently, I've gone back to 'old school' medicine, with an antibiotic and a histamine, with quercetin thrown in too. I'm waiting to undergo dry needle therapy - anyone else done this? I'm so exhausted, and in constant pain. I've had to cancel many travel plans, as I can't last longer than 20 minutes without going to the toilet. I'm in Kilkenny.
