Post-LRP orgasms

One of the things I heard about was men, who have had their prostates removed, is that some can have multiple orgasms. I was left totally impotent by the surgery. My penis is considerably shorter…Continue

Interest in sex
21 Replies

Before my LRP last year I had very little interest in sex. I was fit, could still get erections and my hormone levels were fine. I cannot get natural erections at all since the surgery 20 months ago.…Continue

Dennis Taylor replied to Hunter G's discussion Failed LRP Update
"I was like a bioavailability of 5. It's raised my levels to normal, whatever that is, but no change in my sex drive and I have really bad acne on my chest and shoulders. So, I'm weaning my way off of them."

"I think I've crossed a threshold. I was almost praying for it to be as good as b4 surgery. But, I think considering everything, it's better than b4 now. It's funny, the guys who have had this operation for cancer seem to recover more…"

Dennis Taylor replied to Hunter G's discussion Failed LRP Update
"I had worse pain post-op, too. My quality of life b4 the surgery was a 5 or 6. It was about a 1 after. I also had a bleeding episode after 3 weeks and wound up in the hospital. I kept track of my pain and I was even worse after the complication. So…"

"Thanks for this. Dr.K did mine in 2012 and next winter I'll be at the 3 year mark. I'm a bit older than you, 57, and I'm using the pump and a thing called Viberect. The ED drugs don't work at all on me. Thanks, again."

Dennis Taylor commented on Arnon Krongrad, MD's group Diagnosis
"Nope. I'm 100% impotent since the LRP surgery. Viagra and Cialis don't work worth a damn on me. Plus, I hate the side effects. A urologist told me that they might not work bc my testosterone might low. Plus, for the last 10…"

"No, the epididymitis got it all started. The CP began about 2 to 3 months afterwards. I didn't have the same problems as you.  The pain was always about 20% perineal, 80% scrotal. But I never felt sick or had other issues. Driving was no…"

"I use the injections. The syringe is a very small gauge and I don't have a problem with it. I know others do. There is Trimix Gel (I'll find the guy for you) and you inject it down your urethra. I find this doesn't work as well as the…"

"This was my second go round with CP. I had it for 3 years when I was in my 30's. The doctor said it was probably a bacteria from the anus so likely anal sex, too. My pain wasn't as bad as some but if I tried to do any physical…"

"Hi, John. I had  the  procedure in January of 2012. I was worse off post-op and am still in a bit of discomfort. Dr. K did it. I don't know what I would have done without Percocet. Still 100% impotent but I use Trimix and that…"

What is your score on the Chronic Prostatitis Symptom Index (posted on home page)?
Pain: 13, Urinary Symptoms: 1, Quality of Life: 11
If you have been diagnosed with prostatitis, please tell us your story: age, duration of symptoms, treatments, results, and the like.
Started with epidydimitis in my left testicle back on April 22nd. Took cipro for 30 days. Abscess went away but pain was now in my prostate. My GP said prostate felt "boggy." Urologist put me on Flomax for 10 days. Symptoms are only slightly better. So basically I've had this for almost 7 months. Had the same thing in the mid-90's and it lasted 2-1/2 years but went away by itself after trying lost of different AB's when I first had it.

Pain is mainly in my testicles (particularly the right side) but I feel a tightness in my groin behind the scrotum. Urination is totally normal. My only symptoms are discomfort and pain.

Bowel Movements and CP

Has anyone with CP had painful bowel movements associated with it? Also, has it gone away after the surgery?

Chronic Prostatitis

I just became a member on this site and have reviewed some of the information on the site. I had chronic prostatitis when I was in my late 30's and several anti-biotics were tried with zero effect. I had the problem for about 2-1/2 years when in about a 2 day period, it just cleared up by itself. Now almost 20 years later, I've gotten it again after a 3 month bout with epidydimitis. I was on Cipro for 30 days. So, for about 7 months in total I've had some kind of prostate pain with no other… Continue

They have told me that it will not cure me and may only reduce my pain by 30% but anything is better than what I am going through now even on morphine. I am going to ask about prostate removal even though they have said I am to young, but I have a very understanding wife who just wants me without pain.

I've had the worst results of anyone I know so far. Over a year and still not as good as b4 surgery. I am getting better but very slowly.100% continent but no natural erections yet. Got horrible side effects with Cialis and Viagra and they didn't work. Have had great results with Trimix but you have to inject yourself with it. You also have to experiment with the dosage but 5mcg seems to do the trick for me. I get usable erections for about 40 minutes. I also still leak urine on orgasm. But they say that goes away with time.

Sorry to hear no improvement ,are u still getting pain or is it just problems with erections.I have pain in testicle and also sometimes problems with urination.i have had prostatitis for over 20 years however not bad until prostae operation to reduce in march 2012 but it really flaired up when two student doctors. Put uneccessry catheter in which caused major infection ,taken out after 4 days.Since then hell every symptom I have had or got it.You have got tell yourself u can beat it,I am sure u will get better just it takes longer with som what has Dr Krongrad said about it.If it is pain and not getting better have u thought about prudential nerve damage which can b blocked.
