LRP Success Rates and resolution of pain and bowel symptoms

I am 31 years old and have had prostatitis for 12 years. My symptoms started with a golf ball feeling in my rectum, pain below belly button and then after a year started with bowel problems including constaption and wind. I also have the standard prostatitis symptoms worsing pain after sex, urinay problems, white blood cells in urine. I am not sure if my prostatitis caused my bowel problems or vice versa.

I am considering LRP and wondered if anyone else has had this surgery with the same symptoms and what their outcome was - i.e. did their prostate and bowel symptoms resolve?

Any feedback would be appreciated
