I can only tell you what worked for me, but maybe it will give you ideas....
About 12 or 13 years ago, my urologist said that they could find nothing wrong with me (my prostate etc.) after completing an IVP treatment. I was so discouraged for I thought they could find something; a kidney stone, some restriction, or something that could be quickly repaired. I had non-bacterial prostatitis "big time". I was extremely miserable. This urologist suggested a better nutritional approach and relaxation etc., but I took it one step further, which he was not willing to discuss. I got very interested in herbs. I started with Marshmallow root, and then discovered many other herbs that were beneficial. Herbal therapy is something that needs to be thoroughly studied; it's important that you don't just mix some herbs in hot water and expect instant results. My cure took years, but the improvement was constant. I had this prostatitis type of a problem in varying degrees for more than 20 years, but was too ashamed or embarrassed to see a doctor. I just lived with it, until it was unbearable. It was wrong for me to do it, and wait so long, but that is what I did.
Later, I linked my urinary problems, lower back pain, loose teeth, gum disease, headaches, prostate cramps, arthritic joint pains, skin rashes, and chest pains to my mercury-silver dental amalgams. After having them removed about six years ago, I'm a new man. I'm now experimenting with cilantro to see if it chelates the mercury further out of my body (you can find more about this discovery on the internet).
To make a long story short a doctor 22-1/2 years ago told me not to run more than a hundred yards, and today I run about 19.5 miles each week. That doctor also told me that I was too old, too fat, and that I should take 10 aspirins a day for the arthritic joint pain.
During the Christmas Holidays last week while I was on vacation, I jogged and hiked 33 miles. And now I'm 50 years old. My urinary problems are almost diminished to the point of being almost completely healed. I'll never forget the misery, and I thank God every day for this health. It was frustrating for me for about 20 years as I got progressively worse (until I saw my first urologist in about 1987), so I feel for your pain.
Since, it is rare that you would have what I have (but possible), I would first explore a nutritional approach, and see if herbs will work for you after consulting your doctor and doing thorough research. Best of luck.
By the way, I have to admit that I have still one health problem. I'm having one 15mm kidney stone pulverized with shock wave therapy tomorrow. That was the first time that I had experienced any kind of a problem like that. Other than that, my very detailed CT scan, and all of my laboratory work showed that I'm in excellent health for an old man!!! Wish me luck too.
By the way, a better lifestyle with exercise and improved diet decreases your ability to get cancer too, plus a host of other diseases like adult-onset diabetes.
