I just returned from the ER, I was having a flare-up. Terriable pain in my pelvis area and in lower back. When we got to the ER I told them I had IC and needed heperin installation. They acted as if I was stupid. They said first lets get a urine sample, so I provided. Well it came back with tons of bacteria so I did have Kidney and Bladder infection, but I was still having a flare-up which they didn't treat. They told me to call my doctor. So I have to wait till Monday for any relief. I have already been on Leviquin (spelling?) since Monday for sinus infection. Those doctors need to learn how to handle flare ups. I just feel as we wasted a trip and money. Plus it's 4 am I am still up and pain and can't sleep. Darn bladder......thanks for letting me vent.

I read on here something about the inogen portables. I am very small in stature and have a small tank for portable. They are about a foot tall. Was thinking of buying a portable but was told with the battery they are about 5 lbs. I dont think I could carry that much weight. Just wondering if anyone has a portable. Do the batteries wear out fast?
