"Good to hear that things are going well, Nik. I'm sure that will be encouraging to others who are thinking about the operation."

Jon replied to John Waller's discussion Acupuncture for prostatitis treatment in the group Treatment
"I think it did help with those other symptoms. Acupuncture isn't just for immediate pain relief. In the long term it can help with general healing. I think for me this was the case, although it only went so far, and it was by no means a…"

Jon replied to Chris Anderson's discussion Living in Hell.
"There are many surgeons in the UK doing LRP, but only for cancer patients. As far as I know, Chris Eden is the only one who will do it for prostatitis, and you have to pay, of course; it's not on the U.K. National Health Service for…"

Jon replied to John Waller's discussion Acupuncture for prostatitis treatment in the group Treatment

"I had a grandfather who, I believe, had chronic prostatitis. Unfortunately, I can't confirm as there is no one around these days who can remember. In fact, he had an operation to remove his prostate at a relatively early age (this was during…"

Jon replied to Nik's discussion So Far So Good 2 and a half Months Post LRP in the group Treatment
"Nik, I hope things go well for you. So far, you seem to have made speedy progress. I think to be where you are now after only a couple of months is remarkable. You have been an important member of this forum. I hope you'll continue to check in…"

What is your score on the Chronic Prostatitis Symptom Index (posted on home page)?
Now 24 from a high of 30
If you have been diagnosed with prostatitis, please tell us your story: age, duration of symptoms, treatments, results, and the like.
