Acute and chronic prostatitis discussion. Arnon Krongrad, MD, moderator.
Congratulations Steve and thanks for your post. I wish you a speedy recovery and a better life now without pain. God bless Dr Krongrad & the very few other prostate surgeons in the world who are brave enough to follow him through "THE HOLE IN THE FENCE".
You have just had MAJOR surgery Steve. You will have some pain and discomfort for a while yet but from what I have read (A lot) this will fade over time. As a general rule, you should take it easy for at least a month but everybody is different and some may take longer some less time.
I hope your fever goes away after the antibiotics. I seem to remember David Radford had regular fevers that went after his surgery.
If its any consolation, every bowel movement causes me hours of discomfort with my prostatitis. You have a large healing site mm away from your rectum-its not surprising at all.
