Re: My story...... Need help

I have not tried a gluten free diet. I do follow the IC diet faithfully 98% of the time. I will have to study up on a gluten free diet as I know ZERO about it except it is a big life style change. If a gluten free diet would take the raw feeling away from my penis tip and Urethra, I would do it in a...

Re: My story...... Need help

Still clean from fentanyl patch after 32 days. My anxiety is ramped up. I assume this is because I know longer have the euphoric feeling from the fentanyl patch. I have read it could take months for this to pass. I have quiet a bit of pain since getting off the fentanyl patch in my back and left sid...

Re: My story...... Need help

Yes that includes ALL my expenses including my wife's airfare. I could be off $500 more or less. If this helps, It will be worth every penny to me mentally and physically. It has zapped the life out of me.

Re: My story...... Need help

Well, I am headed to Dr. Wise in Santa Rosa, California for the Oct 1 - Oct 6 session. My current PT has given me few results from penis pain. I talked to Dr. Wise openly by phone and explained what she was doing and he feels that biofeedback of the pelvis has zero to do with CPPS. Anyway, My ONLY R...

Re: My story...... Need help

Sorry for my late response on my progress but Computer Hard Drive went out.... This Therapist uses certain exercises and a ultrasound probe to massage externally. She also uses a biofeedback probe to measure my pelvic muscle tightness. I am making progress but have a long way to go. My penis tip is ...

Re: My story...... Need help

Went to my first PT appointment. She uses biofeedback to determine how tight the pelvic muscles are. This was sticking a probe up my rectum and looking at baselines. This appointment was a evaluation. Normally, The reading should be below 5 preferably 2-3 in a relaxed state. Mine was 22-25. Very hig...

Re: My story...... Need help

Well, I have decided on my Therapist after talking with her. Here is one of her excerpts from their website: Manual therapy can be hugely helpful by training the muscle to relax in order to experience relief. There are both internal and external treatments, which can be used to improve the pelvic fl...

Re: My story...... Need help

Okay, I finally got a prescription for Physical Therapy. I already know that no one around here does internal PT on a man with CPPS. There is a particular PT 40 miles from me that works with men who have CPPS. I will start making calls tomorrow. Is there anything in particular I should ask about thi...

Re: My story...... Need help

Just got off the phone with Dr. Wise. He said I was definitely a candidate to come out west. It will be Oct. at the earliest due to Vacation commitments. I was impressed; he was down to earth and listened to what I said and asked. He asked me a series of questions and after that said I was definitel...

Re: My story...... Need help

I went to a massage therapist today for a "deep massage". He worked on my pelvic area and some spots on the left side were very sensitive and it hurt like HELL. I have a prescription for Physical Therapy for CPPS. I live in Marion, Louisiana which is in North Central Louisiana 15 miles from the Arka...
