Prostatitis and Prostate Cancer

Posted , 4 users are following.

I was wondering if there was anyone out there with both prostate cancer and chronic prostatitis who had a robotic prostatectomy performed on them. If so, was there any improvement in the prostatitis symptoms post surgery?

    If you have a prostatectomy to remove all of your prostate you cannot have prostatitis. If the procedure only removes part of the prostate it is highly unlikely you would get prostatitis again

    Yes. I had both. The prostatitis went away, (no more prostate)  but I still have post surgery pain... swelling, groin pain etc.
