Prostatitis doctor in bangkok?

Recommended Posts

Thanks for all your help oxy.  I'm considering the blue ribbon prostate clinic.  If I go to america my care is basically free so I'm trying to get in there first.

Or maybe the hernia is causing your cp/cpps or causing some of the problems and if you fix it your symptoms will improve?  

Yeah the guy I'm seeing in Cleveland wrote the bible on cpps so he should hopefully be able to diagnose that properly id hope.  I've thought the same thing

I assume this regimen is for bacterial prostatitis confirmed by a positive urine test? It would seem overkill for non-bacterial prostatitis. I know there is an anti-inflammatory effect that some antibiotics seem to have (like Levofloxacin), but I have not heard of Bactrim being used for its ant-inflammatory effects.

 

Is this a regimen prescribed to you by a urologist or your own course of treatment?

 

Good question....from what I know, there are two types of prostatitis: acute and chronic....

and chronic is the one that causes the most distress due to its lingering nature.

 

There is what is known as a 'blood-prostate barrier' which means that very few anti-bacterials

diffuse into the prostate from the blood stream....apart from Bactrim and the new generation of 

antibiotics known as quinolones (Oflox). Because of this bood prostate barrier, I suspect many

bacterial cases are dismissed as non-bacterial (my theory entirely).

 

The information I have provided is from the writings of the world renowned urologist Dr. Yosh

Taguchi MD from Montreal. It can be found on page 103 of his very helpful book....Private Parts....

a must read for those who use their private parts a lot. In Thailand that would constitute 99%

of the male populace, the other 1% being those who simply stay home and masturbate.

I guess it depends.  Some people are here just because it's a little cheaper and/or they're looking or have found a quality woman.  Or trying to instill quality into the woman they've already got.  Not sure how I got off on this tangent.  True though.

Just had my first urologist appointment, will be getting an MRI on my pelvis, bladder and prostate ! Hopefully I’ll find out what’s going on, doctor also mentioned Urethral Stricture ? Have you heard about that ?

I decided to try a month of Flagyl since all of my urine and semen keeps coming back sterile.  I put the wife on it for a week as that should clear anything out of her that could be potentially making my urethra pissed off.  Flagyl for a month will bust the prostate and kill any organisms like trich that doxycyline and Bactrim ds won't touch.

 

Thanks for the update, Bono.  Let me recommend two tests here to you:  an ultrasound of the prostate and a retrograde urethrogram.  The first one will tell you the exact size of your prostate and the second one will tell you if you have a stricture or not.

 

I've had both.  They tested me in 2016 for a stricture but I had actually never had an std at that point.  Since then I've had and been successfully treated for MH and UU.  Doc says these organisms both can cause strictures so once I get our visas ready to leave thailand, I'll have the RU done.

 

Sorry about the late reply.  I've been meditating a lot and trying to pretend this horrible disease isn't there.  Or cope with it better.  Or whatever.

Urology Doc wanted to stick a tube with a camera up my knob to check if I have Urethral Stricture, I declined for now, also declined antibiotics, I’ll see what the MRI shows if anything, if nothing shows then I’ll probably do the Urethral Stricture tube up the knob test. One step at a time. Sneezing makes things worse for me, hay fever season is coming soon, bad times. Learning to relax and meditate is a good idea. Keep fighting.

Why?

It's the best way to see what's going on and doesn't hurt.

MRI is an expensive waste of time and not that clear to see what's happening.

I want to rule out a hernia, I’m getting this MRI done through the NHS in England so not paying for it, I had a nasty bicycle accident before my pelvic problems started so the MRI will also check my pelvic structure etc.. it’s not a useless scan. If clear then I’ll check for Urethral Stricture.

Fair enough, but a camera up the willy is the easiest way to spot urethra, strictures, prostate and bladder problems.

Yes it’s something I should definitely do if MRI comes back normal, I don’t think my problem is prostate, I don’t have a golf ball feeling in my rectum, I read that you and the OPs flare up started after flying to Thailand, well I’ve never had a flare up after flying into Thailand, what causes flare ups for me is certain exercises, sneezing, edging too much when masturbating. My main symptom is discomfort in my left pubic region, i have tingling sensations on my Perineum and balls, I can sometimes have frequent and painful urination, mainly during flare ups though. On rare occasions I get a quick flash of sharp burning nerve pain in Urethra when walking or doing some physical activity, and pain in rectum when moving around at work, but physio therapy has helped with that. As mentioned I had a nasty bike accident, I’ve had pelvic trauma, then months later I had sex 3 times in 1 night with a bar girl in Pattaya and 1 day later bang my pelvic symptoms started and my life was ruined. I’m convinced the pelvic trauma from the bicycle fall is the cause but it could also be hernia or urethral Stricture, Suicidal thoughts like you have is an issue, mental health etc .. also but physio therapy has helped slightly with that a bit ...

If you are having difficulty voiding or having problems with retention a ct scan of the prostate and the tube test you mentioned (RU) is the best way to diagnose the problem.  The mri is not a bad idea either considering the cycling injury.  If all else fails for about the same price most people sink into a month long excursion into thailand you can probably get feeling better at the pt place I mentioned.  I'm going to the us embassy with a one year thai visa, 400k baht in the thai bank, two doctors letters, photos of us in the house, and my 90 percent disability letter.  I hope they'll grant the visa so we can go to the doc in america where my insurance will pay for everything.  I really need to go now.  I also have an internal hemherroid the size of a ping pong ball.  I'm blocked on both fronts.  Horrible.

Urologist wouldn’t do a CT scan with me because he said 1 out of every 200 patients end up getting cancer from the high radiation levels from the scan, I can only get MRI on my pelvis, prostate and bladder.

 

well at least your not giving up, I hope your wife is supportive, a lot of guys in your position would of jumped off the balcony by now but it’s good your trying to fix this. 

 

I do eat turmeric everyday and high antioxidant foods, foods that have an anti inflammatory properties, dark leafy greens, sweet potatoes, ginger, turmeric, fruit etc .. not sure if it helps or not though. 

 

I have flights booked to go to Bangkok on July 12, hopefully I’ll get the MRI before I leave. I’ll try and enjoy myself and take my mind off this pelvic stuff and have fun with the ladies with no pain hopefully, I’ll have a PT session before I go. If good news for all of us I’ll drink a cold chang to celebrate.

Yes, thanks to everyone participating in this thread and SJ for starting it.

I've gathered a lot of good tips from the rest of you guys, links, suggested medications, it's certainly helped me.

12 days without a catheter now and weeing fine with no torn tendons or other serious side effects.

Thoughts of surgery are receding.

As crazy as it sounds if you have bacterial prostate problems you're in the lucky category.  That's easily treatable.  I'm no longer certain I even have prostatitis.  I've been straining since 2014.  I got these infections this year.  The perineum and ano-rectal pain I have may be attributed to just internal hemherroid.  I think I will need to have some kind of surgery to "unblock" me, I'm just not sure what kind.  The main problem may not even be in my prostate it may be my urethra.  They can do something called a balloon catheter to unblock a stricture.  Not comfortable but it usually gets the job done.  I am just looking forward to seeing doctors back home.  This is not a good place to be stuck with these sort of issues.
