    I have had chronic prostatitis for over 25 years and most recently I discovered that my prostate is also enlarged, around 70cc. I'm sure that it was much smaller than this 25 years ago. I have been on countless rounds of antibiotics to little avail. I have tried every possible alternative therapy to little avail.

    I finally did a Holep procedure 4 weeks ago. I can definately say that my urine flow has improved significantly. However, my pain and frequency has not improved very much.

    The doctor said I should give it at least 3 months to determine whether or not it worked for the pain and urgency.

    I will post again in 2 months to update my status.

    i have similar issue but rather than pain at the tip of penis i have itching or mild burning. this started out of the blue about a year ago. like you, have tried tons of different stuff. nothing works. there seem to be some other post people having similar problem but nowhere i can find solution. i guess once they get better they dont bother to come back and post. good luck there.
