Thank goodness for this book - which was very ahead of it's time at that time (1991), and my OB/GYN who read the book, spent a lot of time with me, and dx'd me with IC - which not many physicians were doing back then.
One of the really valuable tips (I think I picked up in this book) was drinking baking soda in water - to make the environment more alkaline - a real life saver from time to time.
I haven't needed another book specifically on IC or bladder disorders since this one. I did see a URO/GYN and got excellent care which, combined with this book, put my IC into remission. Other than that I get on the internet now and then, but this book was a real life saver.
I remember when I first discovered I had Interstitial Cystitis, a chronic inflammatory bladder condition, also called IC. I was looking for help and this was the first book I had located with an easy-to-read, but authoritative synopsis of IC. Later, as I began working with people with bladder disorders, like bladder cancer and prostate difficulties I found I was recommending the book to more and more of my clients as a really good, solid source of basic information on their condition.
People can relate to the patient stories. The descriptions of each disorder are clear and simple to comprehend. Readers understand the explanations of the various tests and possible treatments. And, people liked getting a quick overview of the drugs they been prescribed. For some, information they get from this book satisfies their needs. For others, it sets the groundwork and provides them with what they need to move to the next level of knowledge on their condition.
A good "first book" for anyone with incontinence, cystitis, prostate disorders, and bladder cancer or for anyone who just wants to know about them.
