Prostatis

Posted , 13 users are following.

My Prostate is always swollen, it feels that way all the time. And the physician documented it with MRI and Ultrasound. I also have urinary retention. It appears the swelling is effecting my ability to become aroused. I can not get an erection. I have had 2 biopsies. They want to do greenlight. But I want to know, why is it always inflammed. How can the inflammation be stopped. Any theories?

    They should be able to give you some meds to stop that.  A friend of mine has prostatis and he has had it for many years  He is only 32  He takes his pills and watches what he eats.  And he is doing find.  Don't be taked into have any surgery done if you can take a pill for it.  Your prostate has a infection..Take with your doctor if he does not what to give you any meds go see another urologist  Ken

      You may want a second opinion. If you have enlargement, you could get pae instead of green light and this is less risky. I had mine done 6 months again by dr Sandeep Bagla at vascular institute of Virginia. Travelled all the way there for similar problem and have done great since. Good luck and keep us posted

      My original uro didn't prescribe flomax or finasteride. He just scheduled me for TURP. Luckily work got in the way of surgery. After some research I went another uro and requested flomax and finasteride. I do well on these drugs but want the problem gone so I'm scheduling HOLEP in January.

      From what I know, there is no upper or lower limit. He had told me during the consult he has done prostates as large as 550 grams. Just give him a call or email and he can discuss your case
