Bladder Pain Iron Claw
Often asked to describe bladder pain
Pain is subjective
None is the same
Right now, this second, it feels like
I’m clamped in an iron claw
It holds me with a vice like grip
One pincher on my belly button sits
My pubic bone caught within
The pincher on the other side
Catches my buttocks and all that resides
Sits, tightly, thobbing painfully inside.
I can sit
I can stand
I can walk a bit
But, the vice is felt for every movement of it.
It feels like I have iron pants on
With screws at every side
Perhaps someone, somewhere
Has a voodoo doll of my hide.

I have TVT bladder mesh. I’m awaiting removal…it’s a long road.
