In the 1800s and early 1900s Men had BPH though they did treat it, but how?

Posted , 10 users are following.

Even around the ww1 and ww2 men had BPH but they must have treated it successfully. Many died of old age. Winston Churchill how did he treat it? It just makes you wonder with all the medications and treatments now days. Many men lived to a ripe old age with a prostate enlargement problems. And in Third World countries or other countries like China it's treated differently then in the west. Just makes you wonder?

    Many men died from AUR due to ruptures/sepsis and other complications. There is a classic scene in the HBO series Deadwood, where the main character has his prostate massaged by a prostitute.

      Many people still do for pleasure (evidently very popular with Germans) but when I have a DRE it stimulates my vagus nerve and puts me into AF. You can buy prostate massaging rods to do it yourself.

    I read couple of articles that say that marijuana or  canabis oil can help relieve the symptoms of B PH or even shrink an enlarged prostate. Has anyone heard anything along those lines?

      I've not heard that but it does help with so many things. It has become very popular in the UK and a big health food chain has started to stock it and started with a half price offer.. Miriam who posts on the dangers cipro and flouroquinolones  says that it can help with some of their side effects.

      Victorian gentlemen in England used to wrap their rubber catheters round the inside their top hats. Some lived for a few months before a life ending infection.

    I have seen various views expressed by others. Some Natural Supplements are still being suggested on you-tube. However one has to be very cautious/ selective to try any of these supplements. One likes to know the experience of some one who benefited from any of these before using it himself. Some one on this Forum had expressed good results from Quercetin+Bromelain & flower pollen but he could not clarify about its possible side effects on kidneys, urine retention etc.

    The Romans and Ancient Egyptians as well as doing prostate surgery did dental implants and brain surgery.

    I went round a surgical museum where they had catheters and instruments used in the 17th. century. It may have worked but how many survived the later infections?

    It turned out that the curator like me was an early UK GL success story.
