Theracane vs Therawand thickness

Are they both the same diameter? The Theracane looks much thicker to me in pictures but it's hard to tell without a side by side. Anyone have a picture of them both together?

Re: New Book released to help MEN WITH PELVIC PAIN

Did you read the book? I'm looking at either this or Heal Pelvic Pain after I finish A HEADACHE IN THE PELVIS.

Re: Internal trigger point release: be careful with pressing the pudendal nerve

I just wanted to say that when she did the internal work with me, I didn't have trigger points inside of my pelvic floor. She recommended me to do some "stretch" with the Crystal Wand (she also thinks that the Wand from the Wise Anderson Protocol is better), but I would need to pay €800 which is to...

Re: Topical baclofen

I'd be curious how this goes. I've tried valium suppository but so far hasn't done much. I wonder if baclofen topical or suppository might have a stronger effect.

Re: Rectal Valium Suppository or Gel-Muscle Relaxant

Any followup on this? Specifically 1) did the valium help and 2) does it affect you systemically like an oral dose?

Frequent red splotches under foreskin

This is a weird minor symptom I've observed since I had my initial prostatitis infection. I've become very prone to red splotches on my foreskin and portion of the glans under the foreskin. By very prone I mean this will happen even with daily cleaning. If I skip a day or two my glans will almost lo...

Much worse after perineal release with ball (dihard)

I've heard people with CPPS talk about sitting with a tennis ball on the perineum to release muscles but was initially afraid to try. I tried a bunch of internal pelvic PT but it didn't really do anything and the PT lady was too weak or gentle to make me feel anything on the external pressure. Final...

Re: PT questions

Kreator I'm also a ED main symptom person. Has pushing on trigger points or wise anderson had any results for your ED? Has your ED been constant for the whole 14 years? Have you had anything that might cause a side to side pelvic imbalance like a sprained ankle?

Re: ok, this is weird

The image and link are both broken, can anyone post what these "cones" are?

Have you had continued success with this treatment method?

Blood tests

My uro ordered a testosterone and thyroid test at my last visit. I'm due to see my primary care doc so I figure I'll combine those two with my yearly bloodwork. I'm wondering if there are any other things I should ask for specifically to make sure are included that would be useful regarding prostati...

Re: Unable to breath through nose on Flomax

Thanks. Do you know which alpha blockers have the shortest half life? Perhaps taking one in the morning that will clear out of my system by bedtime will be more manageable?

Unable to breath through nose on Flomax

I got diagnosed with prostatitis and prescribed a six week course of Bactrim and Flomax. When taking the Flomax I found myself having to suck hard to breath through my nose. It was bearable in the day but at night I sounded like a hospital patient gasping for air and couldn't sleep for more than a c...
