"Hi Drs. Muff & Krongrad -
Just checking in to let the forum know that I had an LRP last July. I'm very thankful for your guidance - I don't know if I would have pursued this course of treatment without knowing that it existed as…"
"Nik - thanks again for taking time to write back and share your post-op experience. It's interesting to note how different your and Dr. Muff's experiences are with regard to post-op pain and incontinence. It basically shows me…"
"Thanks Dr. Muff - I really appreciate your candor and honesty. I can't believe you went to work 4 days after surgery! Wow! You are a strong man.
The incontenency thing is something I'll have to consider. I…"
"Hi Dr. Muff & Nik -
I'm sorry to bother you. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I saw a doctor yesterday to discuss injections. As part of my work-up, he did an ultra-sound and showed me where some of the damage to my prostate…"
"Hi Nik -
I spoke to a physician today about injections. I was curious about the agony you experienced. do you think the pain was from the injection itself or from the antibiotic? did you have any relief at all from the…"
"Hi Doctor - I saw your video and could relate on many levels. Yours was the video that make me seriously consider this step. I'm scared about losing the ability to have an erection, but at 47, I figure sex should be mostly behind…"
I've considered prostate removeal for chronic bacterial prostatitis. I'm saving up the cash to have it done. I've spoken to Dr. Krongrad, who seems like a good resource, but I wondered if anyone knows of a Doctor in…"
"Antibiotics are like a double-edged sword. they're better than doing nothing, but I'm not thrilled with their long-term efficacy and side-effects. About 1/2 of the way through my treatment regimen of my second bout of recurrent…"
So it seems you are describing two different kinds of side effects: CNS and allergic. That's unfortunate. For your interest, one of our members described permanently losing his ability to balance at night after antibiotics, which would seem like a neurotoxicity. It's good you didn't have permanent impairment.
It would be good if you would add a description to the thread about antibiotics. It might be useful to someone else one of these days. At your discretion.
I just saw your video on surgery and am very interested. I've weighted the risks and am sure that I'd prefer to take the gamble. I've done all the books, diets, etc. I've read "headache in the pelvis" backwards and forwards. For me, the feeling of the bacterial infection is as bad as the pain itself. I hate the clammy feeling, the lethargy, nausea, chills, loss of appetite. I am tired of telling physicians that I want this thing removed and have them view me amusement. I'm still relatively young and would rather do it now, than later.
