Appointment with Dr. Evans

Hello friends!

It seems like I had to wait forever for this appointment, but the date finally came and passed. I really loved everyone at Wake Forest Baptist-Urology. Dr. Evans was very patient with me and answered my questions. I’m thankful to have someone with his level of expertise on my team. I had a bladder scan done and it showed that I did pretty well, but that I do have more urine than usual for a person who just went to the restroom. Dr. Evans gave me a pelvic exam and further confirmed my diagnosis of Interstitial Cystitis and Pelvic Floor Dysfunction.

I’m now better treating my symptoms. He prescribed a higher dose of Amitriptyline, added Elmiron 3 times per day, took me off Mybetric, and added Baclofen. So far the meds seem to be working, but they make me very tired and loopy. I’m hoping my body will adjust soon. Please pray that these meds will help. I don’t want to have to attempt either of the other options.

Thanks,

Anna
