Thank you. It might be good especially as others join in if you put some of the highlights -- age, symptoms, history -- on your page. You can edit the "prostatitis" box with title, test, images, links ... Others will want to compare and learn.

How did you find this network? It's only 24 hours old.

thanks doctor .im 42 year old . fell over with this at 39 .
for the first 2 and a half year i and a blow torch feeling that went from my ass , perenium and through my uretha non stop 24/7
i was talked into having micro denervation surgery by a doctor after my first year. he convinced me it wasnt a infection. so we did the left side . it did help with the ball pain but the burning stayed . i have had some relief by drainging the prostate while on anti-biotics . but dint give me my life back. i have had 5 rounds of injection and im living again. i hope this stays and i get back to 100% . i pray for us all day and nite . no man should live with this.
thanks again doctor!

Hi. It's best to ask questions of members on their pages because then they are notified. I was not notified of a new discussion in an open forum. In groups (see upper left) members are notified of new content.

Back to your question: I am primarily a prostate cancer surgeon. The case of David Radford, which was so spectacularly successful, caused me to engage the prostatitis community to understand the current situation.

The answer is below.

Sbs/Doc Firecock,

Thank you for your good wishes. For what its worth, I have always liked you, and always thought your heart is in the right place. I actually voted NOT to ban you on the other forum.

Yes, I have perineum and urethra burn--all the classic c.p.symptoms. Most days it feels like I've got a red-hot poker jammed up my ass.

I think you're going to suggest that I visit Bahn in Ventura? Well, I have taken the matter into hand already and made 3 appointments to see him in December.

I have told Bahn that if there's no improvement after 3 rounds of shots, I will discontinue treatment. Somehow, I have my doubts that he will be able to help--mainly because I have had so many failed treatments.

I know he's helped you and others, and that's why I'm going, in a last-ditch effort at preserving my prostate.

But how many rounds of shots have you had now? And what symptoms do you still have (if any)?

I'm glad you're happy with the treatment and you're still doing well. What's Bahn's prognosis? Does he think 8 treatments will be enough for you? Who requested the 8th treatment: you or him?

On a different topic, where do you stay in Ventura? Is there anything to do in the town? It looks like a one-horse town from all the research I've been doing. Any advice would be welcome

Imnotcrazy, Thanks for wishing me well. I will bring more updates as I recover from LRP surgery.

Hello imnotcrazy, I am doing fantastic. My urine leakage after surgery has subsided tremendiously but my spontaneous erection is not yet back. My energy is back and no more debilitating pain. I am very much around. I have not disappeared, just working, working.

Hi Imnotcrazy, thank you for your message, prayers and understanding..i really appreciate it..
im glad that you are getting the good help that you deserve from dr bahn..
you're right - nobody deserves this kind of treatment but i think it comes down to the system rather than the doctor, although there may be 2 shonks in chicago that i now know need to be avoided at all costs.. thanks for the heads up... the hard part is, things such as leaking down your pants after thinking u have finished urintaing or the head rushes you get when the pain comes on strong or the inability to sit down properly is just something that i dont want to go around telling people...especially on a date :)

i also came across quite an interesting theory from 2 proffessors at stamford university.. its known as the wise - anderson protocol which deals with our reactions to stressful situations ie..we have the choice to either to fight , flight ( walk away) or freeze.. the theory works on the notion that freezing is where the problem may lie in non bacterial prostatitis - we tend to tense up in the genital area in times of stress..prolonged tensing in the prostate area could play a role in non bacterial prostatitis... interesting stuff.. im still not quite sure what i have yet - there have been subtle hints of cancer but from what i understand with a psa of 1.6, its highly unlikely, but i will be sure to let you know and i really look forward to hearing about your progress..

its really encouraging to see what other men have to say on this website and am grateful to you Dr. Krongrad for sharing your time and expertise..

God bless

Hi Im not crazy..
Here are some natural remedies that my naturopath has given me.. She is not the type of person that works against doctors and has given me these supplements to synergise with any medication that i am or have taken.. Evry case is different so Im not implying that you should follow my intake, but it would be good if you went and saw a naturopath also - one that will work with your doctor, not against him or her as this will create even more confusion..

Here goes : ( 2 of the objectives in my case, are to alkaline the body as there is a high level of acid and to soften the stools as the bowel can place pressure on the prostate and when enlarged, the pain is what you and many of us have experienced)

- 2 tables spoons of barley grass, 1 teaspoon of magnesium, oxygen donor in one drink, 5 x per day ( before meals)
- 1500mgs of fish oil taken over the day
- 1000mgs vitamin c
- 2 x intesteclear tablets
- liquid chlorfyl x 2 per day
- 1 x pro biotic
- 4 drops of liquid selenium ( be careful as high doses are toxic)
- fibre supplements x 2 per day
- prostate supplements that include saw palmetto and zinc x 2 per day
- 2 x ginko brahmi tablets per day.

Changes to diet include no alcohol whatsoever, rice milk instead of dairy, no wheat, sugar or anything fried, minimal caffein if any,lots of green vegetables, minimal red meat/ fish, brown rice, 2 - 3 litres of water per day,green tea, no citrus fruits at all and at least 8 hours of sleep per night..

She also recommended some yoga excercises, to take deep breaths when the pain comes on and to breath into the painful area..

I have also been for colonic hydrotherapy which helped.. It's not fun but felt great afterwards..

It's also important to learn how to deal with stress in a more effective way.. I noticed that whenever i came across a tough situation, i would get a flair up, thus am now learning to be cool, calm and collected -even laugh in the face of hasnt been easy as i am a hot head and when the pain comes on, the head rushes drive me insane, but taking a more relaxed approach to life has also helped..

The power of prayer is also something that has been very helpful as I know that God hears, listens and understands..

I must admit, that although i hate this illness with a passion, it is the best thing that could have happened to me in in the sense that, it has put my life into perspective and made me re assess what is really important..

Im really grateful to be in this group.. I hope we can all get healed asap..
God bless.
