Thanks Ted for the information. And sorry to hear what your prostate problem has caused you.
I am having the TRUS to see if there are any abnormalities in my prostate that are contributing to this chronic prostatitis I've suffered from for the last couple of years. I continue to have a large number of white blood cells in prostatic fluid, even after numerous rounds of antibiotics.
Your statement about the effects on your blood pressure have got me thinking about my own. I have been hypertensive since I was in my mid twenties (I'm 38 now). I have been tested for everything known to man that can cause high blood pressure, and nothing has been found. Fortunately, they found medication that helps it. Otherwise, I am in great physical shape.
