    Adsolutely, I have it right now and I am in severe pain from it. It is difficult to urinate and my doctor has put me on a month of Cipro and if this doesn't work she wants to send me to an infectious disease specialist. Like they can do anything. This seems more like CPPS rather than a bacteria or fungal infection. So how is this infectious? Any way I have little hope of getting better after hearing about others with the same problem. Oh, I almost forgot. How bad is it when an orgasm is painful? I cringe when I have one and now I prefer not to have sex. I never thought that would happen.

      Yea, I noticed that when my orgasm started it felt fine and then bad dull pain in my scrotum. I was really not happy about it. Now I find myself avoiding sex and that is a bad thing when one is dating. How do you explain that to a new love interest.

      Hi Craig:

      I  don't feel that my prostate is enlarged as I feel no pain there.  I had 2 TERPS in the past and healing was OK and it definately help with me going to the bathroom. I had this done when I was about 45 years old.  Over the many years everything was fine.  I am now 76 years old and I do expect to have some problems.  But this a little different.  Due to several conditions I have and the meds I take, has caused me ED.  Within the last 5 years it has gotten far worse where I cant even get an erection and definately no gratification.  Within the last few months, my urinary stream has decreased significantally.  I would go to the bathroom and when I try to pee, it barely comes out and stops and goes and so on.  I even peed in bed which is plain crap. My wife sleeping with me is not too happy about it but concerned.  To top that off, on the left and right side of my scrotum near the middle is painful when I touch it.  My GP ordered a ultrasound and the finding is 2 cysts.  When I move or walk it doesn't hurt only when pressure is put on it.  My doctor said he will watch it to see what will happen in the near future.  He recommended I see a urologist for further investigation.  Like many urologists, the first thing that comes out of their mouth is a TERP has to be done.  I don't want to go through that again and whether you have to be hospitalized for 3 days as before, I don't know.  Maybe now it can be done as an outpatient.  Although the surgery itself was not hard on me and recovered rather quickly with little pain, it worked for that amount of time.  Actually I had 2 TERPS within 3 years.  Maybe the first time it wasn't done right.  I understand there is a different procedure which is less invasive and successful and much less costly.  Do you or anyone know about this?  It also seems that doctors think it is an infection and put you on antibiotics.  Usually you can't stay on it long term anyway.  The pain you get when having orgasm is something to check out and if you have to get another doctors opinion, I would do so.  Sometime a third opinion is needed.  I hope you will get this thing corrected and wish lots of luck and get back to sex. Take care of yourself and let me know what is found out.

      My best to you

      I have CPPS and it is super painful. I don't think that I am having trouble with my prostate as it is more related to the pelvic muscle spasms. The pain has been so bad that one time I was curled up in a fetal position on the dirty bathroom floor at work for 30 minutes. The pain so intense that my shirt was soaking weat with sweat. I nearly passed out I had tunnel vision as the lights were starting to fade. I also vomited. I have had these episodes my whole life and they have become more frequent and last longer every time. The pain is more than a person can reasonably handle. I can tell that it is a muscle spasm, like one would get in your leg after running for a long time, but it is internal. Usually near my rectum that I feel this pain. It can cause all sorts of symptoms like those with prostatitis. My Uro probably has me on Cipro as protocal would dictate, but I don't think it is my prostate entirely. Prostate Cancer doesn't run in my family so I am low risk so I doubt it is PC. I wouldn't be suprised if my Urologist wants me to have a biopsy when I follow up with them. I will refuse as I doubt it is PC. Surgery would not fix this problem and it may make it much worse as it can iritate the nerves that control those muscle groups. If I were you I wouldn't get another TURP. You had it done and maybe it is time for something less invasive like PAE. This is where they partially block the blood supply to your prostate thus shrinking it down. No over night stay in the hospital.
