Clair Davies

Also, I suggest Davies' excellent book on the subject of Myofasical Pain and Trigger Point Therapies. I just started reading it tonight. Look around the forum here to find out where to get it, I got mine from Amazon.com, I think.

Internal

Garys, I doubt even the fella with the strongest, longest finger could have a deft enough touch to do what you are asking. The SP folks talk about a "wand" in AHIP that they suggest for some of their clients. I've never seen one, but from what I understand it probably is along the lines of what one ...

Have you read AHIP? Much of what you are looking for is discussed in there.

That's a lot of meds, Garys, but you do what you gotta do.

Have you ever talked to a therapist? I know, I know, I NEVER thought I would need to. I can suggest a great one in CA, named Kathy Harris. She does The Work, the Byron Katie stuff.

Garys, I feel for you. I think that you might not see a fast enough benefit in doing things like the SP. That is one of my biggest problems. The fellas I know who had significant benefit followed it religiously, while reducing stress and working on cognitive behavior therapy. I am coming to realize ...

I would suggest you find, no matter how challenging, a PT who is an expert in that field, in effect a second opinion. Do you try any relaxation or any of the SP?

Hello!

Hello!

I read your posts from time to time and I wonder if you ever have tried the Stanford/Wise-Anderson Protocol, and your experience with it?

Thanks!

Two weeks isn't bad

Here in Fort Worth you would wait upwards of a month for a colonoscopy!

SEX

Just read AHIP, it tells pretty much the same thing that he says at the clinic. Once you learn how to relax the pelvic floor, it will make sex less of a liability. Ask CPPSdad about sex. He'll tell you how he got things better. You aren't going to like the answer, but you should ask him anyway.

There is merit

There is merit in seeing both a PT, and a psychologist. Yes, at the same time. My counselor is reading parts of AHIP, and after having been to the Stanford clinic, I see her as a local "coach," when I cannot seek Dr. Wise for guidance.

symptom free

I've talked to a couple of guys that have been symptom free for years. They still are the same people they were born as, but they have changed their lives and thinking so the things that gave them symptoms in the first place, don't do it anymore. That's my goal. Get the muscle tissue stretched and r...

Go for it

I've had three colonoscopies. They are a walk in the park. Now, the prep isn't so fun. You spend the night before on the toilet having loose stools until your colon is clean, and you are empty of stools. The colonoscopy itself isn't so bad, in comparison. Take your list of statistics to your GP. Ask...
