Acute and chronic prostatitis discussion. Arnon Krongrad, MD, moderator.
its been a while since i have been on here. my life is pretty much back to normal .THANK GOD!
but i would like to hear from the guys who have had the surgery and give us some updates.
i dont see anything current or detailed . thank you.
i pray for us all every day! GOD BLESS!!
Here is the CPSI trend of the first patient to complete 2 years of followup in the surgical trial. It shows that his CPSI scores dropped from 30 preop to 4 after 2 years. The zero (0) time point is the time of surgery. A corresponding narrative is posted here (scroll to the bottom; see 2-year addendum).
I found a patient called Miguel, on the other forum.
anyone knows who performed that surgery?
I try to quote it:
" Re: s I had a prostatectomy for prostatitis also, but it didn't work. A couple years later I got castrated and that worked. It's pretty much eliminated the old "prostatitis" symptoms. I had the miserable condition for 17 years. I think in a lot of cases the Cowper's glands are the problem with chronic "prostatitis". If you drastically lower testosterone for a long time, it causes the Cowper's glands to shrink or even disappear, according to some old studies I've read"
