Re: Dat der flaring...

I've been on the Tamsulosin for about five weeks now, and whilst not a perfect solution, it has helped a lot - my symptoms, whilst still not exactly wonderful, are a lot more tolerable and I'm getting out and about and going to the gym. I'm not sure they'll continue to improve enough to be satisfact...

Re: Underwear

Like scotcan, I find tight jockey shorts to be the most comfortable.

Re: Dat der flaring...

First available appointment for the videourodynamics test is 8 April. Hopefully I'll get a cancellation and get in before then though.

Small steps.

Totally and utterly unbelievable. I've seen this too many times on various forums over the years, and it's disheartening that these unscrupulous shills still plague them.

Re: Never thought I'd be back

You might want to get checked over by a Uro for BPH as that's what's causing my issues this time.

Re: Dat der flaring...

Saw my consultant again. The tamsulosin worked a bit and has made life a bit more comfortable, however it's not resolved things, so it's the pressure test next and, barring anything untoward, then a TURP.

Re: Dat der flaring...

I saw my consultant. Essentially I have BPH - my lateral lobes are obstructing the urethra. I've been prescribed Tamsulosin for two weeks and then we'll catch up. If it doesn't work well enough then we'll arrange a pressure test to see if it definitely is obstruction and not something else like a po...

Re: 17 Months In...

BPH affects one in ten men in their thirties. In addition, there are other conditions - Primary Bladder Neck Obstruction, for example - that can occur in younger men. Have you had a cystoscopy?

Re: Dat der flaring...

Sorry. My bad.

Yeah, it's a bummer, and I'm not looking forward to the recovery if a turp is needed, but that's just the way it is, and I'll manage it by the usual tried and trusted means - relaxation, stretches, not stressing, hot baths, supplements, and time.

Re: Dat der flaring...

I get what you're saying, but BPH is BPH and the urethra is pretty blocked.

Re: Dat der flaring...

So there was no need for the BNI as the top of my prostate and bladder neck are open. Unfortunately, the lateral lobes look to be obstructing the middle and lower parts (I've got copies of the endoscopy photos), so I've to go for a pressure test in the new year. If it's BPH then it'll either be alph...

Re: My CPPS Stories and Experience’s

My CPSS has been exacerbated each time by a tightening of the bladder neck due to tissue growth. How did you get that tightening of bladder neck due to tissue neck exacerbated your symptoms? What was your diagnosis method? The first time just because that's the way I was born. The second and this t...

Re: My CPPS Stories and Experience’s

Let's stop here a bit ... if there is tissue damage it must be physically addressed no mental work will help you with that. I agree. My CPSS has been exacerbated each time by a tightening of the bladder neck due to tissue growth. I'm not saying that this will be the case for you, but it's something...

Re: Dat der flaring...

Thanks, Eli.

Saw my consultant today and did the usual tests. Looks like a contracture, so I'm scheduled in for surgery next Tuesday. I'm hoping a quick resolution will help speed up recovery, but I've resigned myself to the usual best part of a year before it calms down.
