Diana, I don’t have an X-ray of my bladder ( it’s a lung X-ray). When my GYN sent me for a pelvic ultrasound, both offices messed up and did not schedule with the same radiologist that I have had 20 YEARS of pelvic ultrasounds with and they assigned a tech. So I requested the MD and they said she was not there and gave someone else. So when I explained my symptoms (cramping) and my huge cancer risk and how the original MD always would do a complete check including bladder and kidneys, this mature MD said “Your MD did not say to check the bladder and they get upset if we find something ” …so she did not do it!!! @?/$@!!! Can any indication of IC be seen in an ultrasound ?
I’m sorry my post was so sloppy! I understood that you were talking about your lungs, and my comment on lung involvement not being painful unless it is big and bad was meant for your lungs! Too many organs in one discussion! ha. Unfortunately, an x-ray doesn’t help figure out IC. Sometimes they’ll go into the (distended) bladder and take a look around. Ouch, They like to do that especially if there are signs of Hunner’s ulcers. Mine was fairly mild and just sort of fit the profile — sense of urgency, some pelvic pain, it felt like I was getting a UTI, but there was no infection. I *think* I have figured out how to turn that level of IC around. I’m not sure if it would be effective once ulcers develop, though. So I’m scoping out some patients for potential treatment in a “mini-trial”. 😉 Let me know if anyone may be interested! Thanks, guys!
