Re: New - what to Start?

Yo knuckles, I'm not a doctor. But, if you had a stricture you would most likely be peeing with some type of abnormality. Like spraying or split stream. And you would probably have some pain or discomfort associated with urination. So, what does your flow look like. If its rolling out nice and stead...

Re: How Helpful is the Wise-Anderson Wand?

I went to the clinic in 2010, and couldn't believe that we got handed a giant cassette player. A cassette player! Good god. And huge book of cassettes..... And it didn't even have fast forward on it. Unreal. The tapes are fine. I think Wise over hypes them. There is certainly nothing magical about t...

I wouldn't go to Parsons, unless you're ready for self-cathing and elmiron or you really feel you might have I.C. http://www.youtube.com/v/bbm9WmAJUAc&hl=en By and large urologists are fairly useless when in comes to this malady.

Re: New here- Here's my Story

Kevkos, the uros love the cystoscopy. I call b.s. If you're gonna have something stuck up your urethra, it might as well be something like a rescue instillation that is gonna provide relief, if there is any to be had. As far as I can tell, if you're not pissing blood, and there is no concern about b...

Can you explain how the methadone clinic works? Has methadone helped your CPPS pain?

Re: New here, any advice much appreciated

Whoa yoink, its all good. Its not an enormous amount of pressure. And what Dr. Wise says and what Tim Sawyer recommends do differ. And, my guess is, Wise hasn't really used the wand all that much. Just my guess. The great thing about this forum is you get an anecdotal look into what people do and wh...

Re: New here, any advice much appreciated

Nick, I use the wand to go in and stretch the sides of the prostate, then go above the prostate. Basically just feeling for any tightness. I focus on holding stretches versus working trigger points (I don't think I have any trigger points). I started with fairly gentle pressure, but have worked up t...

Re: New here, any advice much appreciated

Nick, tip of the penis pain is common. It's actually fairly easy to get rid of (although, in the beginning it freaked me out to no end), and if this is your main symptom then you're in good shape. You can see the diagram in HITP. Its really just referred "pain" from the the anterior prostate. Tim sa...

Re: Woes of a Prostatitis Newbie

Sediment, Alright. I was a little harsh. And apologize. Everyone needs to vent. I don't know you and can't say if you're stressed or not or if stress had anything to do with your condition. I'll say this, it took me a long while to fully comprehend just how much internal stress I was heaping on myse...

Re: Elavil- Experience Day 2 and question

TRUS = TRANSRECTAL ULTRASOUND I asked my primary Dr to write for it. He didn't know what it was either. Any decent radiology clinic should be able to do it. Just tell your primary you're having prostate issues and would like to have it checked out. Might as well do bladder, kidney, liver, gall bladd...

sediment, on Oct 4th you wrote: Concerning Elavil: I've been taking Elavil 25mg every night for the last month or so.

Re: Elavil- Experience Day 2 and question

Oh yeah. One other random fun fact. I just had a TRUS a few months ago. Dr Wise recommends this instead of a cystoscopy. A cystoscopy just seems barbaric. Anyway, the TRUS is not painful, looks like a small vibrator that goes in the rectum a few inches, and you get a nice clear view of the prostate ...

Re: Elavil- Experience Day 2 and question

Kevkos, I'd give the Elavil a couple weeks at least, unless like you are having suicidal thoughts. I've been on an Elavil and Atarax (antihistamine and Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)) combination for a year and a half (10mg Elavil and 25mg Atarax). Because they are both anti cholinergics I exper...

Re: How important was/is trigger point therapy in your recov

Tim Sawyer tells everyone that the relaxation / meditation is more important, which is telling in itself. His share of the patients' time at the clinic is also less than Dr. Wise. And I have come to believe this as well. And Tim Parks obviously had results without massage. I will say, however, for t...

Liris - the lidocaine pretzel

I just came across this. Would be a great addition to treating PBS if it passes trial. Taris pharmaceuticals.

Webslave, you know anything about it?
