SAYING FUCK TO CHRONIC PAIN!! #InterstitialCystitisAwareness 💪💚 ⁣

Today I had my 6th Cystoscopy / Hydrodistention surgery to treat my Interstitial Cystitis, chronic painful bladder syndrome. Making this the tenth surgery last six years. Hard to believe!! The surgery went very well ☺️ My doctor / surgeon Shea Samara says my bladder looks the best he has seen it these last six years. My first Cystoscopy / Hydrodistention discovered that my bladder was so inflamed with lesions & ulcers from the interstitial cystitis that it looked like meatloaf. Today my bladder looked pretty & pink! I’m so proud of how far I’ve come. It’s been a hell of a lot work physically, mentally, & emotionally going through multiple treatments, medications, diets, & integrative medicine. But in the end all the work has been worth it. I will have to continue with these surgeries every 8-12 months for the unseeable future but I’m still keeping my hope alive of new & better treatments … or even better remission 🙌⁣

I’m still pretty woozy from the anesthesia & medications so I’m not yet sure on how long this recovery will be but once I’m feeling more awake I will post an update on how I’m doing 💚 Thank you all for your love & support! #NeverGiveUp #HealthWarrior#ChronicPainAwareness
