I'm a 54 year old male suffering from BPH for the past 6 years or so.
In January of this year, I went to a urologist to discuss my symptom.
I was dealing mainly with urgency (bathroom 34 times a day), and occasional pain (burning sensation when I pee).
He suggested a cystoscopy so that he could see what was going on inside.
Two days after the cystoscopy, I was struck with a severe stinging sensation in the tip of my penis. It feels like I'm being stuck with a sharp painful needle.
This pain persisted for several months about once a week. I was given nothing for the pain, and discovered OTC AZO which helped with the pain from time to time in the beginning.
In June, he did a TUIP to relieve pressure on my bladder. He told me then that it would help with urgency, but not with pain. The urgency has gotten marginally better (especially at night), but the pain has become a daily experience now instead of every week or two.
within the past month, I also now have hypersensitivity as well. Any clothing contact is painful (like a jellyfish sting). I went to see him two weeks ago and he told me to use lidocain 4% topically, and to come back in February.
even with the lidocain, I am awakened almost every night with pain and the only thing that touches the pain is 2000mg of tylenol (yeah, I said 2000mg).
Has anyone else experienced this? I am sure it is a result of the cystoscopy and the TUIP (he told me he had to stretch the urethra for the TUIP).
I can't keep taking that tylenol, but how else to deal with the pain?
