Not for me...

Previously Posted: "However, it is also interesting that in light of the fact that this is definitely not a "prostate" issue, several of you continue to treat it as if it is and haven't gotten any positive results". I'm definitely not in this category. I also have to watch what I eat. My problem sta...

Pediatric Emergency...

They told me to be at the surgery room at 1:30p.m. I fasted for 12hrs. and had nothing to drink for the same amount of time, as they instructed. I sat there in the waiting room for over 4hrs. waiting to go into surgery. The nurse finally comes up to me after they find out how pissed-off I am. She ex...

Finally It?

Going in for a cystoscopy to unroof(drain) an abscess on my prostate. That should have been found and done 5yrs. ago. It took a newer younger Dr. to recommend the Biopsy on me at 37yrs. old, just to find the abscess. I sure hope this is it. 5yrs. of Prostate, Urethra, Pelvic,Thigh, and foot arch pai...

Abscess...

Another trip to the Doctor's Office for scheduled Biopsy. Dr. finds abscess
on my prostate.
Could this be the answer I've been searching for all this time(5yrs)?
I really hope so.
We will see after it is removed.

Amitriptyline bad for me...

The doctor started me on this 4yrs. ago and I wish I had never listened to her. It was to help me with my pain and depression. After long-term use, it has screwed up my nerves and head. Just trying to get off this stuff just makes me so dizzy,nauzious and my head just pounds like crazy. Not the same...

Social Security Administration...

Just got approved by the Social Security Administration for benefits after a two year long battle. Circumstances envolved are very unique though. They don't have a classification for this type of disorder, unlike back, neck, or leg disorders. God I'm so happy. Now I can make plans to get to the Stan...

Personal Thought...

Don't do it, unless absolutely necessary. My first one was extremely uncomfortable. I suspect the second one to this day was the start of all my CPPS problems. Dec-2000: Ecoli bacteria infection/ first cystoscopy Jan-2001: Urethra infection with bleeding/ second cystoscopy Apr-2001: Prostate enlarge...
