The only thing that help is when i used cipro in the first place for my uti...  therefore it cameback with a vengence... Since mycroplasma was found in my DNA  (sperm,urine) do you think it might be normal to have microplasma?

The Zithromax did not help...

Ciprofloxacin or any of the fluroquinolone antibiotics are totally dangerous and can permanently disable you. They cause chronic tendon rupture, tendonitis, damage the gut flora (oxilobacter formigenes - which break down oxalates), they affect the DNA and the central nervous system. People have ended up in wheel chairs and with peripheral neuropathy after taking just a few. The damage they do to the immune system is unbelievable. These drugs should be banned but doctors still give them out like sweets - they ignore the dangers. The do not work for prostatitis either!

Hi Carl

My urologist has tried injection treatment to me..following doctor Bahn protocal...and it didn't help me at all, it took me about one full year to recover.

I discussed to another experienced urologist when back in my country and he told that 20 years ago it was common to treat CP with injections but the results were always quite disappointed.

 

I don't know why it didn't work for me but if it was so efficient this technique would be probably more spread around the urologists treatment against CP.

 

My advice is that you should not put too much hope to the injections.

Im reading a lot of people who have short term succes with injection!!! Are you sure that bacteria causing your symptom? What are your symptom? Do you know the cause of of CP?

In individual cases, a treatment may work. The trick for an untreated patient is to make a fact based assessment of the probability of a treatment working. Individual examples show injections working. They also show them making symptoms worse. One also finds data series as linked here that provide little support for injections.

Question: is the patient's aim "short-term success?" Or durable success?

Hi Carl

I can tell you something: if the link posted by Dr AK was available while i was thinking of trying injection treatment, I would probably have decided not to go.

I was telling myself the same thing as you: " Im reading a lot of people who have short term succes with injection" then I decided to go...but it was a big disappointment for me at the end because it made me worse.

Are you sure that bacteria causing your symptom?...I would put it differently: I went to very famous labs in Europe (one in Itlay and one in France) for TRUS examination and based on their reports I decided that injecting the "suspicious areas" might worth a try.

In my opinion it could be interesting (put aside the cost) for you to go in California to see what the doctor thinks about your TRUS scan...then going for injection afterwards is up to you.

Ya that what i would like to have a TRUS to see what he think? I dont understand why i have to go to California to get that? There TRUS where i am in Canada but i guesst they dont check for that? Very complicated to understand!!!
