I suffer from chronic prostatitis and a tight bladder-neck. I understand that it might not be as bad as BPH but I feel like living like this is hell at the age of 33. I currently have to take FLOmax to help with the hesitancy, slow stream and urgency. It does help to a degree and my stream has improved and my hesitancy has stopped altogether. I had a cystoscopy last September and that came back all clear; it caused no pain or burning and I felt fine afterwards. I saw a new urologist in June and had a second cystoscopy in July. This time is hurt when it went past the external sphincter and prostate and it burnt to pee for about 6 or so hours. 1 month after the scope I have developed what feels like a pinch/burn when I hold my urine and then void (feels like it comes from external sphincter/prostate). The stronger my flow the more the pinch seems to hurt and get worse. I have lots of symptoms - bladder sensitivity, frequency, pelvic pain, feeling of golf-ball stuck in rectum, post void of around 20-50mls. Sometimes I'll get a random stabbing in my urethra or a burn that itches but I can't tell where it's coming from. My penis sometimes feels like it's bruised. When I have finished my urine flow and try to push the last bits out I will get a searing pain that travels through my urethra that is very painful. I leak post ejaculate for a long time after I have finished and this was happening before both scopes.
Manhy of you are more knowlegable than myself. What do you think the chances that this new sysmptom of pinching/burning sometimes is from the second flexible cystoscopy that I had causing a stricture? It was done 2 months ago. Or do you think it's just another symptom from my CPPS/bladder neck. Urologist doesn't want to go up there again and I don't really want a 3rd cystoscopy. So sick of this condition. It makes me feel so depressed. I just want to be happy and active again.
