Fullness and swollen feeling when drinking fluids


Ive been suffering from chronic prostatitis for 4 years now. 

I have the usual suspects of symptoms under control i.e. burning stinging sensation , pain in urethra . 

I live with the constant golf ball affect feeling up my backside which pain varies from high to moderate depending on the weather

i.e. hot or cold, food I eat , feeling stressed. In the winter I have terrible times struggling to piss out a child like amount of urine ..

I tend to drink nothing but water and the odd glass of pomegranate juice, cranberry juice,

peppermint tea . no caffeine and no alcohol !!!and thats about it. my digestive system is shot to bits, common sense tells me this is the aftermath of 9months solid on cypro!!! I find it extremely hard to get a lot of fluid down me throughout the day this is because as soon as i drink or eat I become swollen and have a savage fullness feeling. chronic heartburn and indigestion  .

does anyone else struggle with fluid intake and fullness / swollen feeling once you drink fluid as well as eat.

I would love to hear some feed back on this an indulge in some common ground with out the feeling of AM I GOING SLIGHTLY MAD!!!

Yes, same thing here, if i drink too much fluid it takes a long time to be able to piss it stream is weak with a lot of hesitancy.
Alpha blockers like xatral were helping at the beginning but now less and less....I will have to go for some sort of surgery sooner or later just to deal with this horrible obstruction symptom!
Crap disease.

Hi rich,
Thanks for the tip! Could you elaborate on that one a bit more for me?
Have you used suppositories ? Do they help you? And if so, what symptoms do they help with?

John they actually help me with most of my symptoms, unless I'm having a flare up. Their called Proscure Prostate Suppositories, you can get them from Amazon I don't really know why more people on here haven't at least tried them.

They best symptom they help with is the burning pain in the butt.
