So i get my digital rectal exam and it hurt like hell. GP was surprised and sent me off to a urologist. He put me on antibiotics too thinking along the lines of prostatitis. My prostate wasn't inflamed feeling but he felt a nodule.
My psa has always been sitting steady at 0.2 ug/l (taken every year) but rose to 0.8 after exam. Although GP wasn't concerned as he said it does rise immediately after a dre.
It has been like a trigger of uncomfortable feeling in my groin for a day or two after that. I didn't have any if this before. Feels like tight muscles at play. Stretching my pelvic floor has helped.
It's obviously all very worrying as I'm only 45, hoping the urologist has better news. But want to be prepared.
My question is, has anyone else felt pain like this during and after a dre? I can't find any information that leads to anything but possible prostatitis. Even then, many don't get this tenderness with a dre.
