find another doctor. the ones who know about IC don't need to do a hydrodistention to know the you have IC. Anyway the new research shows you don't need to have hemmorages to have ic. And you can have hemorrages and have IC. Personally I think it is all pelvic floor problems. heating pads help-and the baking soda and water (1 tsp with a glass of water) lasts 8 hours for pain. careful if you have high blood pressure or are on a salt free diet-it is high in salt.
