Prostatitis Info Requested
Greetings all –
I have read several of the existing threads concerning prostatitis, but I have several questions that I thought would be better addressed in a new thread.
I was diagnosed with what is my second case of prostatitis a couple of weeks ago. First case was in 2003. This does appear to be the bacterial type. Blood and pus in the urine and bacteria growth. I had very painful and frequent urination at first, but that has now subsided. Now I just have a dull lower back ache. Prescribed medication is Levaquin antibiotic and Flomax to free up urine flow.
My first question is about supplements. I am presently taking fish oil, ZMA, saw palmetto. pygeum, and some maca. Does anyone have an opinion on whether any of these either aid or hinder my condition? It would seem fish oil’s anti-inflammatory properties would help. Doc said to stay on saw palmetto. What about the rest?
Second question is about prostate massage. I have read quite a bit about this at various Internet sites and purchased a PS2 New from High Island Health. It’s the same thing as the Aeneros. I have used it a couple of times. It’s not painful and actually feels quite good, but I am wondering if using this while I still have infection is okay or not? High Island has a forum, but I couldn’t find any direct opinion on this.
So any input or relevant experience from our resident experts would be much appreciated.
