Movember - we should raise awareness for prostate disorders

So.  I was wondering if there could be a way for people to notice our collective ailments. Prostatitis, seminal vesiculitis, the general idea of there being muscular causes of pain, and the often-ridiculously-understudied -and-ignored transferring of sexually transmitted bacteria that causes permanent or really debilitating issues for most men

These are all ignored by the medical community. We aren't getting any help. We're told that its all in our heads, that we should seek help and…

My current situation (in need of advice?)

*In advance, if you don't feel like reading all of this, just read the last paragraph. It sums it all up.

Okay so what seems to be the problem with many cases is that nobody can recall what caused their problem. Me however, I know exactly what caused it. Ever since 15, I've had terrible masturbation habits. I would go 3-4 weeks without ejaculation. I always liked the challenge of seeing how long I could go without masturbating. Then I'd go 1-2 weeks of doing it anywhere…

Signs that prostatitis is getting worse?

Hey guys, I've been really off and on with my symptoms lately and just wanted to get some feedback. My urethra tneds to burn maybe twice a day. I maybe get perineal pain two or three times a day as well. However, I'm getting an odd stomach ache and it is very powerful. I've been having it since June where it would come and go but I'm starting to wonder. The source of the pain feels like it's behind my belly button so I don't know if it's prostate related. However, it is possible that my…

LRP for chronic Prostatitis 2 years on

June 1st was my 2 year anniversary for my LRP for debilitating chronic prostatitis. This will be my final update as I don't think much is going to change from now onward. 

Symptoms

My pain has been reduced by 70% to 90% depending on the day. No more fevers or night sweats, since the surgery. I can sit down for hours now with very little discomfort. No more frequency or urgency. The remaining 10-30% discomfort is…

A slightly different line of thought

This may be a slightly strange post so please beat with me.



My case prostatitis is certainly infectious. But whether it is bacterial or not I wonder if the below has any merit?



When I pass stool I do get some prostatic discharge. This of course made me think, here is a natural process that is automatically flushing out the prostate. While sitting there I realised though - sitting on a toilet isn't exactly natural. The toilet after all is a technological innovation. So I… Continue

A good note

I've managed to get out of my depressing funk a bit. It's enough to make a difference. I went from picturing a dead end to a unique determination. I have my goals to get over this and my goals for when this gets better. Refraining from many activities hasn't been easy. But I know that some day I'll be back at it. I haven't felt much perineal pain lately and my urethra burn has been quite managable. It's this testicular pain thats a huge culprit and if this lasts for any while longer, I think…

Next step to take

I am at the point where very little is enjoyable. I can hardly enjoy a video game or movie at this point. At times, the urethral burning gets to me but I find If I drink enough water, it's not as bad. However, my testicular symptoms are starting to annoy me and have me sleeping for a majority of the day. This makes me question what I really have. I'm refraining from sexual and physical activity until I figure the next step as no relief is provided anymore. No doctor has really said anything…

the end of 25 years of suffering!

Got called up for the army physical in 1967 and amazingly flunked the exam due to puss in my urine, which I never knew I had. No pain, no discomfort just puss. It saved me  from the horrible war in Vietnam. That was the first sign of things to come.  Fast forward six years, after some experimenting with cocaine and grass, terrible itching in the groin which no one could figure out. It was only years later I attributed it to my intolerance to grass and other party drugs to which I was never…

Ejaculatory Duct Causing pain

Dr. Krongrad can EDO cause pain similar to prostatis? I have had typical prostatitis symtoms for 2 years. I have recently had a TRUS that showed a calcification in the verma area that appeared to be in the ED. Also on the same side it showed a dilated ED .65cm in the area that it enters the prostate. Could this be causing all of my pain? How difficult is the to treat?
