Re: CPPS is taking my life from me (Brett's Case)

I'm actually really starting to worry that my bladder pain is related to a fistula, or maybe the start of one. The gas from the fiber seems to be making me miserable but its helped my stools tremendously. It helped at first with bladder pain but now its like really bad. I read up on the symptoms of ...

Re: CPPS is taking my life from me (Brett's Case)

So far so good. I started taking konsyl 6 grams once per day. And introduced more fruit and veg in my diet. Stools have much improved and bladder pain also has too but I still get flare ups sometimes after a deuce. One thing that clears up the frequency is when I sit in a lo back chair and lean back...

Re: CPPS is taking my life from me (Brett's Case)

Just found out definitively I have diverticulosis . Went for a check up and they missed it on my CT scan last year. Even though I was told without imaging I had it from a different doc. I didn't think it was possible. But I have 100% confirmation. Sucks. But I started eating more fruit and veg and s...

Re: CPPS is taking my life from me (Brett's Case)

My grandma and grandpa had a mutual friend. And her fr...

Re: CPPS is taking my life from me (Brett's Case)

I just learned my grandpa is dying. I didn't think it would be this hard but I'm very sad. I was doing ok but tonight I feel really sick. Feel like throwing up. I did eat something that's a big no no though. But I think my feelings of losing my grandpa are making it worse. This is just not a good da...

Re: CPPS is taking my life from me (Brett's Case)

My worst flare ups occur after I ejaculate and have a full bowel/constipation. That is the time I have the highest odds for a flare up. Today one hit me hard. I think I'm going to resort to a stool softener. Maybe that will help stop the irritation I feel from the hard stools. One thing I noted toda...

Re: CPPS is taking my life from me (Brett's Case)

So today I had an enormous hard bm. And this bm I think was pressing on my bladder. So after I had a big poop I got the usual frequency. However I have been blocked up for weeks with hard stools. And I can feel another big one moving down the sigmoid causing more pressure. I have started to change m...

Re: CPPS is taking my life from me (Brett's Case)

Well a couple days passed and the symptom that was creaking me out has calmed down but the usual ones are still around. Gas bloating constipation causing bladder pain... The usual. However the usual ain't so bad compared to the unusual. I think I'm going to try a new diet I need to eat some more fru...

Re: 5 year's since my onset...Life is good!

I can understand the blessing in disguise. But the torture associated with it's onset... I don't know. I think it's great you have that attitude. I wish I could be more like you in that regard. As Carl says charge hard in a relaxed way.. Just wish I could.

How are your reactions when given a new complicated task that requires thinking planning and a tight deadline...

I'm curious as I go into vigilante mode... Lol

Re: 5 year's since my onset...Life is good!

Glad to hear it. I'm one step forward one step backward. Although aside from thus current flare up life is manageable as long as I'm concentrated on something. I just can't fix the anxiety.
