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 of a rectal nature sometimes after a sub optimal bowel movement if I allow myself to get constipated. I believe this may be left over scarring from the surgery but as long as I eat well and drink plenty it is a minor issue.

Side effects

I am fully continent and potent with good orgasms & no perceivable penile shrinkage that some report post surgery. In the early days after surgery I would ejaculate some urine mixed with pre-ejaculate fluid but not anymore. Just pre-ejaculate fluid at around a third of the volume of a full ejaculation. Of course I am sterile now but then I was almost sterile due to the prostatitis anyway so nothing lost there. My desire is unaffected and in fact better than it was when I was in agony from the prostatitis.


The agonising decision to do the surgery has turned out extremely well with no regrets. It is the bravest but most worthwhile decision I have ever made.  I can lead a normal life with no fear of prostate cancer in the future. 

Update (19/08/2015)

The remaining rectal discomfort described previously is almost completely gone whilst taking quercetin. When I tried quercetin (Prosta Q)  before  the surgery it had little to no effect. Now any reputable brand of quercetin/Bromelain is extremely effective.

Yes Blake, every morning! In the beginning though stimulation was required.

Nik thanks for your story very informative. Did they analyse your prostate after they remove it? If so did they find anything? Was there ever any proof that i was infection?
Comment by Nik on July 19, 2013 at 2:35am
They found inflammation in the prostate tissue but no bacteria tests were done I believe.
