After having a turp on the 21st of November 2014 I was having bad urge problems, thinking it was a rather a long time after post op. I went to my doctor last week who did a urine test for bacterial prostatitis, the test proved negative.

he was still convinced there was an infection so gave me a course of anti biotics. a week later ( now ) the problem ( urgency ) have all but gone.

I would never have thought of geting bacterial prostatitis straight after

chronic prostatitis being sorted.

maybe this post  will help others if they have a similar  experience.

kind regards to all.

Howard.

    Glad to hear sometings are better. I had a cath in from day of op on a Wed til I got out of the hospital the following Suday. Problems came back, cath went back in for a week. Cath came out  20 mar. 10 days of ciprofloxacin this time so appears to be better. Now have to ream it clean up to 16 or 20 french twice a day, have these Mickey Mouse Matteresses yet. I am a disabled VET, 70 years old and at the VA hospital I am one of the young ones.

    Hi Howard,

    Glad you got things sorted out, and good of you to make other people aware of your situation.

    All is well here, six weeks since my prostate operation. Starting to get a bit of fitness back and hoping to get back on my bike in a couple of weeks time.

    Best Wishes

      Hiya Brian, I glad you are doing well It's hard to believe what we both went through just a few months back, I don't know about you but I seem to be able to look toward the future now. ( the antibiotics seem to be sorting the urgency out ) thank goodness.

      I have to see the Doctor tomorrow ( Monday ) as it seems I have angina, It doesn't rain it pours.

      LOL...

      kind regards

      Howard

      Hi Howard,

      Thanks for your reply, I am in the same boat. I have a heart problem, hence that delayed my operation. 

      If you remember I was due to have the operation around the same time

      as you.  Anyway keep positive.

      smile

      Best Wishes Brian

      I had to smile when I read that about " cars being scraped ". At a gas station the other day I saw a young man about 20 with his tow truck that had an old rusty body of a car that I could not even begin to name what it was. I asked, " Gonna scrap that ? " He came back at me, " No way, paid $100 for it but in six months will have it like it came off the show room floor. I will have 1,000 hours in it, about  $10,000 in parts and sell for no less than $75k."  I had to ask what it is, he said 1963 Mercedes is what it will be. I wished him the best.

      A wonderful story. Shows what enthusiasm for a project can accomplish.

      It is a pity one cannot obtain and fit new parts for the human body as one can with a car! It also shows that, with enough time and money, old things can be restored to their former glory. Alas, many of us have neither the time nor the money.
