I recently posted about my tuip procedure that I haad back in March. I thought all was healing fine but taking a bit longer than expected. I think somehow I am having prostatitis symptoms which my uro has given me cipro 1000mg daily for the past 8 days(have 2 days left). Not much relief unless I take the Motrin 800's. I'm working 12 hour shifts sitting in an auto and have been on the couch at home pretty often due to not feeling like doing much else due to the discomfort (perrineum soreness, achy balls etc.) Is it possible that the TUIP with the incision of the prostate as well as the bladder neck has now given me another issue of chronic prostatitis? If so, will this also eventually settle down with the rest of the nerves and whatever else was rattled around down there? I appreciate any advice.

Re: Tuip/Prostatitis

I had a TURP in mid-April. Recovery was long, about 2 months, maybe a little more.
I don't know about a TUIP.
Prostatitis can be really, really hard to treat. If you had it, they wouldn't have done the procedure, so you must have contracted it afterward. Sometimes, one prescription isn't enough.
All the sitting can't be helping, but there is little you can do about it.
If you think that you are taking too long to heal, and that the doctor is treating it lightly, see another doctor. It has been a long time for you.
Good luck with this.

Re: Tuip/Prostatitis

Way to long, He says because I'm younger so there are more nerves therefore I am more sensitive and every person heals differently. I think I've had about enough of the back, perrineum and ball pain. I just saw my GP for an annual physical and he recommended the same, get a clean set of eyes on the case via a 2nd opinion. I also just got the number of a highly recommended urology specialists out of Manhattan and I'm going to schedule an immediate appt. with him asap. My GP was bent that I was still taking 800 motrins and has some real concerns for my kidneys and stomach, being I had some acid reflux issues in the past. I'll hopefully have some good news to post next week!!!
1 quick question, does scar tissue cause pain or just cause the flow to slow down, any idea?
Thanks again,
