One Prostatitis Patient's History and "Cure"
Bolles, prostatitis patient:
Interesting angle: Has symptoms under control using unconventional therapy.
Very Brief History:
5-year sufferer, usual Urologist roundabout
_ symptom onset
_ doctors' visits
_ very typical of many prostatitis patients, multiple urologists, antibacterials,, etc.
Polacheck stay (3 months), treatment
_ "the Feliciano method"
_ massive antibiotics, antifungals,, etc., for 6 weeks
_ regular massages and cultures
_ cultures showed little then and now
_ symptoms before and after
_ peritoneum pain
_ penis tip referred nerve pain
Ongoing therapy and drugs
_ strong exercise program, weight control
_ condom-only sex, no oral sex, one partner
_ biweekly prostatic massage by wife
_ medications to dispense pain, relax pelvic floor
_ trazadone, transxene, tegretrol_ dosages and why
_ does this work?
_ still have prostatitis
_ problems_cannot sit for more than 4 hours per day, must keep relaxed
_ solutions_approach to life_ mentally and physically
_ but, symptoms are now mild and can live with current state of disease
_ theory on why this works for some (ongoing form of Feliciano treatment), and not others
_ size/texture of prostate before/after (now like 22-year-old kid)
_ urologists say I am "cured"
_ continued to be monitored for changes and drug therapy continues
