My urologist said I have about a 20g prostate.  The most irritating symptom is that I have constant bladder pressure, which makes me feel like I have to urinate all the time.  Anyone else have this symptom?

      Thanks for the response.  I'm going to try an Ayurveda treatment to see if that works.  I was prescribed Alfusozin but I don't want to take a drug forever.

      Hi Chuck

      Alfusozin is another drug like Tamsulosin and finestiride with similar side effects. I would steer away from such drugs.

      Ayurveda is a herbal treatment and massage developed in India. I have not tried it myself. What I am trying is a fitness routine by going to the gym twice a week for an hour walking and running on the treadmill, cycling,rowing and other exercises for back,legs. I have reduced intake of caffeine by drinking water or pepermint tea. No alcohol intake. Finally stopped drinking after 7 pm apart from a little water if required.Regards Peter

      Hi Mike

      Very slightly instead of 2-4 times a night it is now 1-2 .

      During the day 4-5 but I drink plenty of fluids.

    Hi Mike

    Steer away from drugs and not sure about this Indian herbal therapy. I would suggest some fitness routine and caffeine reduction. I go to the gym twice a week for an hour walking and running on the treadmill, cycling,rowing and exercises for the back, arm and legs. Reduce your intake of caffeine, drink water or peppermint tea. Reduce alcohol intake and do not drink after 7 pm perhaps a little water if required. Eat more vegetables and salad with your food and lots of fruit after. Regards Peter

    Hi Mike,  I also have a benign enlarged prostate (40g) and had strong pressure and urgency/ frequency ( up to 20 times / day).  After getting tachycardia on Flomax, the consultant recommended I try Saw Palmetto as an alternative remedy. I have been taking Vogel Prostasan for over a year and it works very well for the stream. I also have an overactive bladder and continuous pain so my GP prescribed Tolterodine, 2mg twice daily sorted out the urgency/frequency and reduced my need to pee back to normal.

      Hi Twiglet, thanks for that info. I've never heard of that brand of saw palmetto. I like that it's Swiss.  Have you heard of percutaneous tibial nerve stimulation?  It's for overactive bladder.  They stick a thin needle in your skin and you get electrical impluses for 1/2 hour once a week for 12 weeks (I think) and then just once a month thereafter.  No drugs at all.  I have a urologist appointment in a couple weeks and will ask about it.  I will also try some of that Vogel Prostasan.
