Help. I am in considerable pain tonight. I had a TURP done about 61/2 years ago and I have had problems since then. Been to many Doctors. My present Urologist has sent me for pelvic physical therapy. During my last visit my therapist pressed on my prostate and the hit the exact spot where the pain seems to be generating from. The thinking being that it could be scar tissue from the surgery over 6 years ago. I am getting sick of being in constant discomfort for the last 61/2 years. Nobody ever mentioned scar tissue to me before and I just want to PLEASE have my life back. My current urologist did mention the possibility of having the prostate out over the course of time if nothing else works. I do wonder why I have to find out about the scar tissue 61/2 years after surgery. Why could I have not found out about this sooner? I will do whatever I'm told. I just want to Get Better. I'm scared. I've been told this is prostatitis, but I just don't know. No man out there should know the amount of discomfort I have endured for the last half dozen years I have had this. I do prey when my current urologist does see me next month he will do everything in his power to please help me and make me well again. I have faith in him. I just don't know why it took so long when nobody seemed to care. Does anybody on here understand how i feel and just maybe have a little compassion for someone who has suffered for and recieved little sympathy from the medical profession for so very long. I do need understanding friends and any helpful advise anyone may care to give me and connection with anyone who has gone through anything familiar such as mine. As I said I am scared right now and would like positive, not negative feedback. I do very much want to get better and live my life once again. Awful feeling of discomfort down in the pelvic area. Could this be scar tissue????
