Dr Eden,
I put a question up for you on the forum. Would you be so kind as to take a look at it?

Thank you

Dr Eden,

Thank you for seeing me yesterday. Just a couple of points which I would like to clarify.

1) You said yesterday that you would "oversee" my surgery. I take it from this that you will be inside the theatre, watching and directing whoever will be doing the surgery. I understand the need for training urologists in this new field of surgery, but I felt slightly uncomfortable on the train ride home yesterday. I need to be reassured that the outcome from my surgery will be exactly the same if you were the surgeon carrying it out. After all, that's the reason I travelled to Surrey in the first place, to be treated by you. Dr Krongrad tells me the skill of the surgeon is paramount in LRP procedure for a successful outcome.

2) You mentioned that you had removed the prostate from a sixth c.p. patient. You said it was too early to tell how the patient was progressing. May I ask how long ago the patient's prostate was removed? Was it days, weeks, or months?

Once again, thank you for all your kind assistance, and good luck with your marathon.

Dr Eden,

Any news on the sixth chronic prostatitis patient you performed the LRP on?
Obviously, I am extremely interested to hear how he is doing, and it goes without saying I wish him a full recovery.
Thank you for your time

Thanks for the update, Dr Eden.

Dare I ask whether the patient's erectile function has returned? And his continence?

Or is it too early to tell?

Hi Mr Eden

I would really appreciate it if you could give your opinion on my post about radical TURP for prostatitis when you have a spare moment.

Thanks very much.

De Eden,

I continue to perform laparoscopic total prostatectomy for chronic prostatitis/pelvic pain syndrome on a regular but infrequent (3-4 cases a year) basis. I operated on a surgeon from the north of England last week, who felt a difference by the second post-operative day. All but 1 patient to date (out of 10) has been cured of his pain.

so far thats 90% success, from what they say 95% cases are non bacterial, Some where someone is wrong???? how many out of the 10 had cancer? Again thanks for answering me. Dave

7/10 had cancer. I quite agree, Arnon, that patients with this life-changing condition need a forum such as this to discuss their problem and potential solutions with fellow patients. Congratulations for providing this valuable resource for what is generally a hugely-underresourced condition.

so far 70% so now they say 95% is nonbacterial, and they also say prostatitis has nothing to do with cancer, I think they whoever "they" are dont know #@%* about prostatitis.

We know that chronic inflammation causes cancer in some parts of the body (e.g mouth, tongue, skin etc) but this has never been established in the prostate as both prostate cancer and prostatitis are so common. Whether they are causally related or not is probably not as important as knowing that they commonly co-exist, making surgery for end-stage chronic prostatitis an eminently sensible option to at least consider in suitable patients.

DR Eden,

what does mean "end-stage chronic prostatitis"?

Dr. Eden

How much does CP (LUTS) efects incontinence after LRP for CP? Do you still perform LRP for CP? If one have to pee every hour and half, could it get worse or better?
