Any advice re exactly what Prostatitis rectal sensations are like?

Hi. Thanks for any help.

My doc told me a while back that I probably had an enlarged prostate, am 58, in pretty good health, though I have an ileostomy from 20 years back due to ulcerative colitis. The ileostomy is fine.

But, lately I have been feeling some pressure and discomfort in the rectal area. I do not have a rectum, as when I got the ileostomy I also got a total proctocolectomy.

Can anyone explain what these rectal sensations associated with prostatitis are supposed to feel like? It's not a sharp pain, just an on-off feeling of discomfort or slight pressure. Also, I did have my gallbladder removed recently.

Thank you very much.
