Biking

Now that I am feeling better - I fear I have to go bike riding with my son (just try saying no to a four year old!). There has been discusion on this site of diferent seats and what not - I am just wondering if anyone has anything new/different to say on the subject or has purchased one of the seats...

Scans / Test on me showed a lot of my problems in the seminal vesicls as well. Diagnosis of Epididimytis / Prostatitis / Seminal Vesiculitiis. The protocol posted on the home page here helps a ton if you stick with it (Quercitan espcially) - I personally found Grape seed extract to be very helpful (...

update

Hey - This is just one of my periodic updates - I must admit - I don't post as much now that I am so much better for so long. Anyway - for those of you that are new - read my postes under success stories and injections. Progress to date - I hate to use the "c" word - so how about if I just say I am ...

I noted that your injections were transperenially - that is a particularly painful (and potentialy more dangerous ) way to get them. If you or any other patient out there is considering injections - I urge you to consider the trans-rectal approach - it is the same technique used for a prostate biops...

I am sorry to hear about your experience. I, on the other hand, had a wonderful experience with my interprostatic injections. I think, like many forms of treatments, it works very well for SOME people - and not for others. I am sorry it did not work for you. What modality of injection did you have a...

Dr. Shoskes (and others) were involved with a trial of a medication that is to reduce nanobacteria and their associated calcifications. Now - the nanobacteria thing may/may not be bunk - but the calcification thing is real. This same medication has been shown by reputible researchers to reduce CORON...

The thread on Prostatic Injections

I feel the need to respond to it - and I can not post a response since it is moved and not able to be responded to. I have been a member here for a while - and those of you who are frequent readers know that I am a proponent of injections for some patients as it has given me my life back. I think it...

I don't dispute the drug's negative side effects - I just think that patients should be able to weight the risk/benifit and make an informed choice for treatment and accept any risks.

Sorry to hear about your episode.

NSAID

Being someone that took a lot of NSAIDS when my pain and inflamation was bad - I thought the current news was interesting. I took a lot of Aleve (naproxen) - Naproxen sodium. That (and others) are now thought to cause or contribute to cardiac conditions. But - I must say - I would still take them if...

This is going to sound silly - since you are well into pain management drugs. But when I was at my worst...and I tried the whole slew of Narcotics...what helped me the most was a NSAID called Alleve (generic is Naproxyn I think)....this may be silly - as you likely have tried them all - but if you h...

Still curious about their claims in light of the research being done on Cernilton though.

Oh - well.

I can honestly say that seeing him was the best medical interaction I had for a CP visit to a Doctor - it is a loss to the health care community.

Q-Urol Question

Why does this new product say it contains "bee pollen" proven effective in several Euoropean Studies - when in fact (unless I am totally losing it) cernilton is what was studied for Chronic Prostatitis - and that is NOT exactly equivlant to "generic" bee pollen. (See - Phytotherapy in Chronic Prosta...

update on injections

Every now and again I like to post my progress - and it has been a while now. Summary: Treatment protocol of periodic injections (antibiotics + cortisone) and low dose antibiotics, quercetin, grapeseed extract and avodart. Current status is 100% symptom free for many months now. I suppose some day i...
