Thomas Rodert replied to Rhythm Earthsong's discussion Lack of "dependable" treatments quite depressing in the group Treatment
"Some research has been done in Canada on the effectiveness of cannabis as a pain treatment for those with CPPS. The results seem quite positive. Does anyone here have any experience of using cannabis to help the pain?"

Thomas Rodert replied to Frank's discussion Why I dont see new experiences LRP, new patients taking this operation?
"I was once considering the operation, but have changed my mind due to the lack of research data. For what it's worth my opinion is that the operation can be very effective for those with chronic bacterial prostatitis. It makes sense to me that…"

Thomas Rodert replied to Frank's discussion Why I dont see new experiences LRP, new patients taking this operation?
"Francisco, I wonder the same thing. This site seems to have become very inactive. It was originally set up in conjunction with a research project to determine the efficacy of LRP for chronic prostatitis. It was a very exciting prospect, as very…"

Thomas Rodert commented on Thomas Plail's blog post autoimmune prostatitis
"Am I the only person who's a bit disappointed that this site has very little discussion these days? Mostly it seems to have become a marketplace for miracle cures. By the way, I have suffered from chronic prostatits for ten years. You might…"

Thomas Rodert commented on Gerard Sternik's blog post Antibiotic advice
"Hi Gerard, I think the problem might be the Sulfatrim. I've taken many antibiotics and the only one I have a bad reaction to is Bactrim, which I think is just another brand name for the same antibiotic. After some research I found that a…"

Thomas Rodert replied to Blake's discussion quercetin in the group Treatment
"I tried quercetin, but it didn't do anything for me. The problem is that it may help inflammation - but I don't have any inflammation, only pain, and that's very common. I also tried the broccoli diet. I followed the instructions…"

Thomas Rodert replied to Blake's discussion Before you had Chronic Prostatitis ? in the group Signs and Symptoms
"Before I got this I was in good health. In fact, in retrospect, I was rather smug about being in better shape than most of my contemporaries. If anything good has come out of all this, it's that I'm much more understanding of other…"

"Hi, I was wondering how things are going with you. Hopefully, you have had the LRP and are recovering well. I'd be grateful for any information. Cheers, Thomas"

Thomas Rodert replied to Andrew's discussion My story, and in need of advice of what to try next
"Hi Andrew, I think that depression/anxiety can definitely make the symptoms worse, but don't let doctors tell you that it's the cause of the chronic prostatitis. I've yet to see, on any forum/website dealing with this condition, one…"

Thomas Rodert replied to s mndl's discussion surgery for testicular pain..
"You might check out 'microsurgical denervation of the spermatic cord'.  This is a relatively simple operation and is very effective for many people. I also suffer from pain in the left testicle, but decided against the operation…"

Thomas Rodert replied to Arnon Krongrad, MD's discussion Do Treatments Work? in the group Treatment
"I also had a bad reaction to trimethoprim in the form of Bactrim, which is a mixture of trimethoprim and another antibiotic. I've tried many antibiotics, none of which have done any good, but none of which made things worse except for this one.…"
