Penile Implant

I had a LRP for chronic prostatitis in 2010 and have since had to deal with varying degrees of ED. Over the last seven years I have tried every method available to help but none were 100% favorable. On Oct 13 2017 I had a AMS 700 CX implant installed surgically. As of today it has been a little over 3 weeks since my surgery. I am posting in case there are others who too have had a LRP and are considering the implant. I am open to all questions.

LRP for chronic Prostatitis 2 years on

June 1st was my 2 year anniversary for my LRP for debilitating chronic prostatitis. This will be my final update as I don't think much is going to change from now onward. 


My pain has been reduced by 70% to 90% depending on the day. No more fevers or night sweats, since the surgery. I can sit down for hours now with very little discomfort. No more frequency or urgency. The remaining 10-30% discomfort is…

Life after LRP

I just want to say how glad I am I decided to have my prostate removed back in 2010. I had suffered with chronic prostatitis for so many years and my health had deteriorated because of it. Years of antibiotics had affected my whole system in a very negative way. I am very thankful I found Dr Krongrad and appreciate the fact that he and other doctors are willing to help men with this dreaded disease. My health has improved greatly since my surgery. It didn't happen overnight but with a…

Antibiotic advice

I just came off of a twenty two day antibiotic treatment for bacterial prostatitis, which involved taking Zithromax, Levaquin and Sulfatrim .

I was supposed to be on these antibiotics for 60 days, but I became very sick due to the side effects and had to stop.

My prostatitis showed signs of improvement, so I would like to try this again.

Are there any antibiotics that I can take for this that are not in the family of the three drugs I mentioned, that are as effective, but will… Continue

Movember - we should raise awareness for prostate disorders

So.  I was wondering if there could be a way for people to notice our collective ailments. Prostatitis, seminal vesiculitis, the general idea of there being muscular causes of pain, and the often-ridiculously-understudied -and-ignored transferring of sexually transmitted bacteria that causes permanent or really debilitating issues for most men

These are all ignored by the medical community. We aren't getting any help. We're told that its all in our heads, that we should seek help and…

My current situation (in need of advice?)

*In advance, if you don't feel like reading all of this, just read the last paragraph. It sums it all up.

Okay so what seems to be the problem with many cases is that nobody can recall what caused their problem. Me however, I know exactly what caused it. Ever since 15, I've had terrible masturbation habits. I would go 3-4 weeks without ejaculation. I always liked the challenge of seeing how long I could go without masturbating. Then I'd go 1-2 weeks of doing it anywhere…

Signs that prostatitis is getting worse?

Hey guys, I've been really off and on with my symptoms lately and just wanted to get some feedback. My urethra tneds to burn maybe twice a day. I maybe get perineal pain two or three times a day as well. However, I'm getting an odd stomach ache and it is very powerful. I've been having it since June where it would come and go but I'm starting to wonder. The source of the pain feels like it's behind my belly button so I don't know if it's prostate related. However, it is possible that my…

A slightly different line of thought

This may be a slightly strange post so please beat with me.

My case prostatitis is certainly infectious. But whether it is bacterial or not I wonder if the below has any merit?

When I pass stool I do get some prostatic discharge. This of course made me think, here is a natural process that is automatically flushing out the prostate. While sitting there I realised though - sitting on a toilet isn't exactly natural. The toilet after all is a technological innovation. So I… Continue

transrectal resection of ejaculation ducts


I want to ask about a surgery call. ( transrectal resection of ejaculation ducts) is this will help with chronic bacterial prostatitis ? Many docotor recommend it because of recurrent infection and taking many antibiotics without helping

A good note

I've managed to get out of my depressing funk a bit. It's enough to make a difference. I went from picturing a dead end to a unique determination. I have my goals to get over this and my goals for when this gets better. Refraining from many activities hasn't been easy. But I know that some day I'll be back at it. I haven't felt much perineal pain lately and my urethra burn has been quite managable. It's this testicular pain thats a huge culprit and if this lasts for any while longer, I think…

Next step to take

I am at the point where very little is enjoyable. I can hardly enjoy a video game or movie at this point. At times, the urethral burning gets to me but I find If I drink enough water, it's not as bad. However, my testicular symptoms are starting to annoy me and have me sleeping for a majority of the day. This makes me question what I really have. I'm refraining from sexual and physical activity until I figure the next step as no relief is provided anymore. No doctor has really said anything…
