Re: Meatus / Tip of Penis

I have had penis tip irritation since Oct. 2012. I have never found a answer to deal with this except to wrap it and deal with it. I have been thru nine urologist, 2 PT sessions and I still have no answer for a fix. Hopefully, you will be one of the lucky ones and it goes away. Mine is "better" but ...

Re: My story...... Need help

Well, I went to another Urologist yesterday hoping he would know about CPPS; It said on his website he dealt with pelvic floor dysfunction. The very 1st thing he wanted me to do was take 30 days of Doxycycline; 100 mg 2X a day. I told him I have taken so many antibiotics in the past with zero result...

Re: My story...... Need help

Had my yearly examination from my Urologist; PSA of 1.4. Prostate felt fine. He recommended me to try saw palmetto to see if that helped with my possible CPPS issue. I say possible because no Urologist I have ever been to will say I have CPPS. I believe I have CPPS but as many on this Forum, I canno...

Re: Wise-Anderson Protocol in Treating the Self-Feeding Cycle of Pelvic Floor Dysfunction

All I can say is I wish there was a clinic in my area of this caliber and knowledge of CPPS. As many, I cannot afford to go to California. I have had several unexpected expenses pop up; My wife's Mother and Father died within 3 months of each other putting the family in a financial "tail spin" for t...

Re: San Francisco Bay Area or NorCal or Central-Cal Wise-Anderson Protocol

Thanks for the reply. My understanding is the only way to get the Wise Protocol treatment is to go to Dr. Wise in California right? Because no one else uses the psychological aspect of this protocol. I do not take "much stock" in reviews. I just wish I could use my Insurance to help pay for this exp...

Re: San Francisco Bay Area or NorCal or Central-Cal Wise-Anderson Protocol

Its not about being confident; Its about the way it is handled and the cost. If I could find a PT who embraced the Wise Protocol, I would definitely try it. I do not know enough about it just by reading what is on this site. I could elaborate on "other reviews" by different sources which are very mi...

Re: San Francisco Bay Area or NorCal or Central-Cal Wise-Anderson Protocol

This is a problem for most who have CPPS; there are no urologists that use the Wise-Anderson Protocol. I have checked all over the greater Dallas Texas area and no one knows of this Wise-Anderson Protocol that I have been able to find. Kinda "weird" IMO. Spending approx. $8000 to go to the classes i...

Re: My story...... Need help

Lets say I go to the clinic. When I get back, I still will have to find a PT who can help in this area. Guess what? I have yet to find one even in the greater Dallas area. If I could find a PT who specialized in Dr. Wise techniques, It would be a no brainer for me. When there is seemingly no PT in a...

Re: My story...... Need help

All I can tell you is that the Wise-Anderson clinic is the crème de la crème. They don't need to fight with penny-pinching insurance companies. If you cannot afford it, go to other good people who can refer you to their own expert PTs, like Ragi Doggweiler. But that way you won't get the full enchi...

Re: My story...... Need help

I understand the Insurance issues and the over charging of Hospitals also but my Insurance would still pay for the PT, The Doctors (Urologist, Psychologist etc.) I just wanted to try and understand the refusal to take Insurance. I believe the Urologist visit is $350 dollars itself. I cannot control ...

Re: My story...... Need help

Webslave, Do you mind giving me Dr. Wise credentials? His degree is in Sociology right? Also, It really stinks that they refuse to take any type of Insurance for the visit to Dr. Wise. Insurance cannot be used for the Urologist nor the PT much less the Doctors involved. I just do not understand why ...

Re: My story...... Need help

Does anyone know of a Urologist or Physical Therapist in the greater Dallas, Texas area who could help me with this CPPS? I have been dealing with this chronic misery since Oct. 2012. Stopping Narcotics did not help. All that did was cause my pain level in my back to elevate big time. Going gluten f...

Constipation; Certain medication issues

I have struggled with constipation ever since this CPPS jumped on me 3+ years ago. Can someone explain this? I feel it's because of tight pelvic muscles? Also, I still have Penis tip irritation and pain. Obviously was not the Fentanyl patch which I am off and I hurt like Heck. Another question; Why ...

Re: Any new novel approaches?!

I have had this problem over 3+ years now. I have been to many Urologist including Baylor in Dallas, Texas and no Urologist would ever give me a diagnosis of CPPS. Most said they seen nothing wrong. One said I had IC which is possible but for my big issue to be penis tip pain and not have frequency ...
