Hi girls! I was diagnosed with trigonitis in August 09 (symptoms started August 08) and my urologist performed Diathermy. Has anyone had this done? Its where the urologist goes inside and burns the trigone to deaden the skin and new healthy skin is supposed to regrow?? I really dont feel it has made any difference to my symptoms, infact some times i think it is worse as it is impossible to have sex now whereas i could sometimes have it before. Anyway im on antibiotics (6weeks low dose post surgery and 4 weeks high dose after that) but still no change at all. The urologist said he was fairly confident this would all be cleared up in 6 weeks but its now 9 weeks... I'm waiting to get another appointment with him.
Also does anyone have a swollen pelvic area (as in it feels hard and swollen to the touch below your tummy)? Hate the way there is so little info on this!! My doc says it does go away it just takes time but I'm struggling to stay positive.
I also had vulvar pain to begin with and then developed chronic pelvic pain in surrounding muscles. I am ontop of the pelvic pain however as i found a very good physiotherapist to help explain what i can do to get out of pain and the vulvar pain did actually go away with time by itself and a little accunpuncture (8 months approx) so there is hope there
Would love to hear from others and their experiences especially anyone who has had diathermy performed?!
