Re: CURED AFTER 8 YRS OF CHRONIC "ABACTERIAL" PROSTATITIS

ddhamlit, I second webslave's suggestion. My CPPS was triggered by a documented infection. The infection took nearly two months to eliminate from my body (the wrong antibiotics were used over and over again) and when it finally left my body, I was left with symptoms that mimicked the infection (pelv...

Re: Wise-Anderson Protocol Wand?

The suspense is killing me. Though if they're allowed to describe it in such detail, I wonder if they've already received FDA approval.

Re: Wise-Anderson Protocol Wand?

http://www.myprostatitissymptoms.com/the-wand/ BTW, DW told me he is considering holding a clinic in Europe in a few months if there is enough interest .... just thought I'd throw that out there. :smile: A bit confused. Is it possible to order the wand? If so, am I missing the link on the page? Or ...

Re: Sex vs Masturbation

When the time comes, and things are more serious, give her "the talk". "Look, I really like you. I want things to keep going between us, but I want you to know something about my health. Dont worry, nothing you will catch and nothing that is going to kill me, but it does make my life really hard so...

Re: Pelvic Floor Botox in/near Chicago/Midwest

I'd reach out to Anthony Schaeffer at Northwestern. He's a professor, but might know someone.

Re: How Helpful is the Wise-Anderson Wand?

Hey critthinker, I have been using the wand (finally, correctly) for almost exactly three months now and I don't think it's an exaggeration to say that it has literally saved my life. I've had CPPS since about 2007, but my symptoms were never really life-changingly bad until this year. I went to Dr...

How Helpful is the Wise-Anderson Wand?

I'd love to hear from those who have the wand and have been able to compare its ability to reach and get rid of TrPs relative to fingers/other products.

Re: TrP injections or dry needling

Thanks, critthinker. Did you just do dry needling, or did you also have injections of lidocaine or a similar substance? Trying to figure out if there is any advantage of one over the other. Thoughts appreciated. I did both (injections and dry needling). Injections were of the rectus abdominis and d...

Re: TrP injections or dry needling

Yes, I had a lot of success in eliminating the pain emanating from abdominal TrPs. Dr. Weiss performed multiple injections on me, and it was obvious that it helped. I've since tried out dry needling on the adductors, glutes and iliacus, and have noticed a pain improvement from this, too. The sensati...

Re: Sex vs Masturbation

Hahaha I love that description of the Brah. Unfortunately there are way too many of those types in South Orange County and Riverside. I definitely would not be able to get anywhere with a Bro-ho. Probably would be too cautious and anxious for her likings just by my behavior and body language. She w...

Re: Sex vs Masturbation

I'm just thinking of course some women would be understanding but since women are the choosers in the mating game, wouldn't it be much easier for them to just pick a guy that performs well in bed, is tall, handsome, good physique, blah blah blah... I guess I've just been with girls who are sensitiv...

Re: Sex vs Masturbation

I think one of the biggest misconceptions I hear from those with CPPS is that it's a bad idea to tell women about it. I think some of this depends on how serious you are about someone, but I haven't had any problems at all discussing it with girls I've been involved with since I developed symptoms j...
