Is there relief for interstitial cystitis?

My mother suffers from interstitial cystitis. The doctors in my country say it's incurable, and it is making her hopeless. Does anyone here have experience with method that actually work, maybe not to cure but to lessen the symptoms of IC?

Hi there.   This is a vaginal prolapse forum so you may want to re write your question to a different forum for bladders.
I will tell you however, that along with IC treatments which you can find on the bladder forums, some women like myself as well as men get told they have IC when they have infections that have gone into their bladder wall.   It isnt easy to get treatment and diagnosis for this condition but there are more Drs starting to do diagnosis and treatment for this condition.  
If you have any further questions you specifically wish you ask me please private message me.   Otherwise please leave a message on the bladder IC forums.
Thank you
