Patients who present with IC have complaints of bladder and pelvic pain and irritative voiding symptoms
, which include urgency, frequency, nocturia, and dysuria (Batra, Wein, & Hanno, 1993).
Urinalysis, complete blood tests, urinary system x-rays, and urinary system ultrasound (USG) were obtained from patients with hematuria, irritative voiding symptoms
, and infection for differential diagnosis.
Clinical Presentation: Irritative voiding symptoms

Irritative voiding symptoms
were reported by 12 women (66%) before surgery, and 8 (44%) after surgery.

are common following catheter removal.
