Nearly 1 million Americans live with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), and for many, the disease may cause bladder or bowel issues. MS warriors Julie Stamm and Diana de Avila join us to discuss how their diagnosis impacted bladder and bowel function, their journey exploring treatment options, and how they’ve adapted today. When Julie Stamm was diagnosed with MS in 2007, one of the most troubling symptoms was bladder dysfunction. After the initial devastation of learning that she would have to use intermittent catheters, Julie’s perspective shifted as her catheterization routine helped her continue the activities she enjoys. For Diana, an artist and disabled veteran, finding a noninvasive option to treat neurogenic bowel was paramount. Diana will share how her current treatment regimen has helped her continue pursuing her passions as a digital fine artist working in fractal geometry, augmented reality, and algorithmic art.
