What is your score on the Chronic Prostatitis Symptom Index (posted on home page)?
If you have been diagnosed with prostatitis, please tell us your story: age, duration of symptoms, treatments, results, and the like.
I was 30yrs old, diagnosed with chronic bacterial prostatitis/enterococci. I remember the first night i got real sick with fever and constant trips to the resrroom. Some nights i had to get up at least 7 times to urinate and only drops would come out. Some nights i would fall asleep in the bath tub just so i wouldent disturb my fiancee at the time. For seven years i was given 7 different antibiotcs and 3 different treatments in which i had to stay in hospital for i.v. Coarse. Finally in 2012 i reached the point to where i had to have surgery. I was referred to usc university keck, in los angeles, and had a robotic laparscoptic prostatectomy. I was 37yrs old. Iam very grateful that most of the symptoms and all the pain is gone, but the emotional and mental stress took its toll on my family, especially my kids. Iam 41 now and trying to put my life back together, and still fight with depression.
Good day, How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very important to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site. Could you please get back to me on my private email(email@example.com) if you dont mind ? Have a nice day and God bless you,
