Interstitial cystitis treatment

Posted by on Dec 8, 2010 in hormone allergy | Comments Off

My illness started two years ago when I believe I started into meonpause. I was 51 and my sympotms were urgency and frequency. The pain in my bladder started getting worse and became intolerable. Pain could be a 10. Been to many doctors and have had a hysterectomy that was precancer. I have been fighting an illness I believe is hormonal based/thyroid related. My diet is restricted to vegetables and meats. I drink purified water and chamomile tea. That is it. I still struggle with vaginal pain and thyroid symptoms and my body vibrates and hums especially at night. I am at my wits ends. I feel...

Interstitial Cystitis

Posted by on Nov 11, 2010 in hormone allergy | Comments Off

Hello Dr. Roby. Do you remember me? I am in Trinidad. I got the ProCALM Drops and gave it to my girlfriend. Whenever she used it, it worked for a couple of hours. There was no pain from her bladder whatsoever. I thought it was a miracle. The problem was that it only lasted a few hours. Then she had a seizure and has not had a period since. She was hospitalized for the seizure and has not taken any ProCALM Drops since. As you can see, nothing worked for her. I wonder if Dr. Roby would be kind enough to advise her. She is in so much pain she is trying to get her bladder removed by surgery.I...

IC with Allergies, Air, Food, Hormones

Posted by on Oct 25, 2010 in hormone allergy | Comments Off

I have been diagnosed with IC. although no mention was made of pelvic pain disorder, there is no question I have this condition as well. For a year, other than a few episodes in which I experienced a UTI I have done well on cytra-3 and dietal restrictions (very severe restrictions). For the past month or more, I have had a terrible flare and have found by using antihistamines (benadryl) about 4 pills in a 24 period I have gotten significant relief. I am a very allergic person, with multiple food and environmental allergies. I also used a vaginal estrogen cream twice a week (recently changed...

Message: Dr. Roby: I am 44 years old. I have had urethral pain for 4 months now with bladder spasms. I had a hysterectomy 3 weeks ago related to a large complex cyst.

You can order them from the store on my website at You are...

Dear Dr. Roby: I am contacting you about my husband John. He is 60 years old and has been diagnosed with IC with Hunner’s Ulcers. He has been dealing with this for at least 3 years and the symptoms have now become so severe that he is extremely fearful that he will never again have a normal life. He has had the bladder distention, biopsies, instillations, etc. He has seen Dr. Evans in Winston Salem, NC who is considered to be an expert in this area but he seems to be at a loss as to what to do for Johnny at this point. Does this hormone allergy apply to male patients also? He is...

Dear Dr. Roby, If you may remember, you told me to start with vial # 1 (since my progesterone level was good and vial # 5 didn’t seem to help) and take it for three weeks. # 1 seems to help!! I barely have any IC symptoms anymore!! You said that after three weeks you would mail me more vials (stronger ones) and (if I am not mistaken) I would need to take the new and stronger drops once daily. Could you please mail me those? Thanks so much! YR I am happy you are getting such good results. You still need to get your hormones tested as the long term solution is balancing your hormones...

Interstitial Cystitis and Hormone Allergy

Posted by on May 27, 2010 in hormone allergy | Comments Off

Dear Dr. Roby, I called this morning to find out my lab results so I know if I need to continue taking the DHEA 5 mg, estrogen cream, and cortisol. I have seen some improvements with the therapy. The first thing I noticed after taking the vials I was more alert and I could see very clearly, I was no longer in a fog. The other thing I noticed was that my bladder flares with the Prog/Est 1 were less severe and I did not pass blood with my urine. I still had pelvic pain during ovulation and with my period but it was more manageable. When I started taking the Prog/Est 3 my bladder flared for 3...
