The telling of IC never gets old as I figure it comes with the territory of being an IC advocate and IC patient in remission. I hope that with each unveiling of the truth about the disease that we draw closer and closer to better treatments and a better understanding of the underlying causes of the disease. So much work has been paved by tireless physicians, IC patients undergoing clinical trials, and a myriad of other pharmaceutical companies and medical researchers and I can honestly say that we have come very far towards a bringing IC to light. That being said there are still countries where IC is prevalent but access to IC specific health care and medication is very difficult to come by.
So in my little physical part of the world (CO) I find a glimmer of hope for IC patients and look forward to upcoming interview with an up and coming physician making her way to help IC and chronic pain patients in this little corner of the world. Look for more news about this doctor and for the interview transcript on the website in the late summer months. Trust me when I say it will be another great doctor interview!
