Acute and chronic prostatitis discussion. Arnon Krongrad, MD, moderator.
its been a while since i have been on here. my life is pretty much back to normal .THANK GOD!
but i would like to hear from the guys who have had the surgery and give us some updates.
i dont see anything current or detailed . thank you.
i pray for us all every day! GOD BLESS!!
I have a long write-up on the web-site as well. I had surgery 11 months ago and I feel better than I have in a long long time. All sorts of energy, no pain or discomfort, and a digestion system ( no pills ) that works. Yesterday I was up at 6.30, had a 1hour work-out with my personal trainer, drove 90 miles to work, returned in the afternoon, and then played 16 holes of golf before the sun went down.I am now ( next morning at 8.00 am ) going to airate my lawn before I go golfing again. Needless to say, any one of those things-workout, drive, or golf-would have done my in for 3 or 4 days prior to last May.
The only downside at this point is my bladder is still not perfect and I do ware a small pad although there are many days I do not need it. If I was not very active, I would not need it at all. I am still hopeful I will see more improvement in this area. This issues is more of a nuisance and keeps my beer drinking down which may be a blessing in disguise. The erectile dysfunction is also an issue but is clearly improving and not having any detrimental effect on my relationship with my wife.
I hope this helps.
Very well put on No 6 Dr K. My wife & I often dream of being able to go travelling again, able to sit on long distance flights without a suitcase full of medications. I would also like to be well enough to get another job, something I have been unable to do since being made redundant. My wife is supporting us both at the moment, she is a heroine to me.
If our IVF succeeds, I will want to be able to be a proper father to my child, not a crippled man who cannot sit or even lie on my back comfortably. When I look at what else is missing in my life right now, erectile dysfunction would pale into insignificance, even though it probably will recover at 39 years old. Even if it did not, the operation would still give back more than it took and my wife & I would have considered it worthwhile. I am not even worried about permanent incontinence in the hands of an experienced surgeon.
