Here I have had another day of fluctuating and moving pain. Today has been primarily anal pain, along with some frequency. The worst part is I have had a headache for 5 days now. Stress? Anxiety? Weather? Prostatitis? Who knows. I have also been having random, short-lived temperature spikes (99.5 +) with heavy sweating. No idea what that is either, but I would bet it is the prostatitis as well.
I happened to also have an appt with my primary doctor, who I greatly respect, and we discussed the severity of my prostatitis. He was in shock when I told him how bad it has affected me, and I mentioned to him that I thought about the LRP. He looked at me like I had 3 heads, and said I did not want to do that. While I respect what he says, is there some bit of ignorance in the medical field with this "disease?" I know surgical removal is not well documented for prostatitis, but why is it so terrible when other things do not seem to work? What are the alternatives? Living with it? Pain management? Sorry, those are things that I just cannot do.
I am not quite sure what my point is of this blog, but hopefully some of you have either shared, or understand, the frustration I am having.
