Prostatitus Advice

Recommended Posts

Could anyone with experience in this give me a little direction?  I have been diagnosed with Prostatitus by local Urologist in Udon Thani.  I have had this bladder thing for a few weeks and had a full health screening at Bumrungrad 2 weeks ago, all is great im a very healthy chap apart from the prostatitus.  They actualy didnt find it as Bumrungrad because I stupidly didnt have the two finger exam and so they said it might be a UTI.  5 days later local urologist had a poke around and said it is prostatitus.  He assured me its not cancer or anything as my report from Bumrungrad showed normal levels of something or other that points to prostate cancer.  Something in the blood - could be lippy count or something I dont know to be honest, but he is adamant it is not prostate cancer.

 

I have just finished one week of antibiotics and went back to local urologist last night for appointment.  I told him it was no better and he gave me another week of the antibiotics.

 

It seems there are 2 or 3 different types you can have.  Chronic, bacterial, or chronic bacterial?  The treatment given depends on which one you have.  Am I right in saying to truly identify what it is you need urine cultures and digital probes?  I asked local urologist guy and he just shook his head and said no need (he also said its difficult?)

 

An ex-pat friend of a friend up here recommended a urologist at Bangkok Pattaya hospital.  Im just trying to decide if it is worth seeing this guy for a second opinion?  Is there anything he can do differently to the local urologist?  If so, does that then mean I will have to stick it out with Pattaya doc and ditch the local doc sort of burning my bridges in the process?  Will I then have to visit Pattaya every week or two all the way from Udon?

 

Im not sure what to do here.  I know there are far worse things to have and its a common thing for blokes over 40 (i am 45) nothing to panic about, but i am anxious about it a little.  I have heard of people who still have this after 2 or 3 years.  Even 2 or 3 months of this would freak me out.  As I said its not a serious thing but its not a nice thing to have - feeling like you need to pee all the time and going to the toilet 3 times an hour just for a trickle is no fun at all.  I guess im a little worried that the local urologist fella isnt maybe doing his level best and possibly the expert down in pattaya might be able to nail this for me?  Also my Dad had prostate cancer and whilst the local guy (two local urologists actualy) looked at my health screening report and insist its not prostate cancer there is still that nagging doubt in my mind.

 

Any advice appreciated, thanks so much.

I am afraid I can not help you much on this as I had prostatitis when I was 18 and that is well over 50 years ago now.  Even then a course of antibiotics fixed it and it has never recurred fortunately. You say you have "this bladder Thing" so what are the symptoms as mine was a stinging sensation whilst urinating ?  I live in Udon thani and always found Bangkok Hospital there to be extremely good, is that where you saw the local urologist ?

Likely "PSA".

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prostate-specific_antigen

Value up to 4 is considered inconspicuous.

Urologist lately told me that for my age of about 60 a value of 6 would be "OK".

Unfortunately mine is much higher and currently on medication.

Unless you have some other reason to visit Pattaya it hardly makes sense to travel there as some of the best urologists in the country are in Bangkok. Dr. Viroj at Bumrungrad is especially recommended as is Dr. Thanoo at Samitivej.

You would also find some good urologists at Khon Kaen University Hospital (Srinagarind) and might prefer to go there first.

A urine culture should have been taken initially before starting the antibiotics. Fine to start treatment pending the results of the culture and then adjust after results come in, but should have gotten the sample. It may be a bit problematic to get one now that you have already started antibiotics.

Acute prostatitis normally needs at least 6 weeks of antibiotic treatment so not feeling better after just one week in itself does not mean anything.

Basically you have 2 choices at this point:

1. Continue treatment with your original urologist until you have had 6 weeks antibiotics. If still symptomatic at that point go elsewhere (or do so before then if symptoms worsen) Bring your medical records with you. If all symptoms cleared after 6 weeks antibiotics then assume treatment was successful.

2. Go elsewhere now.

In either case from here on insist on culture and refuse to start new antibiotic without one. For some reason Thai doctors are reluctant to get cultures. Maybe 80-85% of the time it won't matter but when it does, it really does and not having gotten one at the outset makes successful treatment a whole lot harder.

Regarding your concerns re prostate cancer the test they refer to is probablya PSA. A normal PSA combined with normal findings on digital (rectal) exam of the prostate makes cancer unlikely as does your age. In addition your symptoms are consistent with infection. It is understandable that with a family history you are concerned about orostate cancer and that is a good reason to have periodic screenings (PSA and digital rectal exam) every year or two. But nothing you say raises concerns right now. Find out what your PSA was though and keep for future reference.

Sheryl thank you so much for the detailed reply, I appreciate the effort you out into that!  I have taken your advice on board and feel relieved actualy that I dont have to venture to Pattaya every week or so.  I guess you are right, it makes little sense and if the doctor there is going to prescribe antibiotics just as the local udon doctor is, then realy whats the point.

 

Im not going to lie, this is playing on my mind quite a bit.  I seemed to have picked up a sore tonsil on the right side now, which I am sure is related to my body fighting the infection and nothing to worry about but then again, I have a wild imagination.

 

I have been feeling low energy last couple of days, earlier today I googled 'does prostatitus make you tired'.  Worse thing I could have done because yes indeed it does make you fatigued.  Actually Google is just full of page after page of people worried about being fatigued months into the illness.  I am hoping that particular side affect is not as common as it seems on google - a slightly painful bladder and frequent trips to the loo I can handle just about, but if I am going to be run down and tired for months that will drive me crazy.

 

I cant believe such a low-danger, non-serious illness can completley bugger you up like this.  I hope to god it doesnt last months.  A friend of mine in the UK has had this for a few years and says he often gets fatigued and 'shivers'.  Is that what I have to look forward to?  Just from a bacteria thing?

 

By the way I remember you from you years ago!  You live on Koh Pagnan is that right?  We have never met but i lived in Samui from 2003 - 2005 and remember you being pretty6 active in that group.  Glad to see you are still around.

 

Thanks so much for the advice I truly appreciate it very much indeed

Most people with prostatitis do not suffer severe fatigue or other systemic issues. Those who tend to post on internet groups are more likely to be those who either have unusually severe symptoms or are ascribing everything they feel (real and sometimes imagined) to the condition. Try to take it easy and do not overly focus on every little ache, pain etc.

 

You have me confused with someone else, I've never lived on KPG or anywhere in that region.

First of all I do believe that Sheryl was right in as much as your symptoms sound very similar to having a UTI infection, so another course of antibiotics, once they have managed to culture something, would not go amiss.

 

I have suffered from prostatitis for 30 years or more and for a great deal of people it is fairly incurable!

Bacterial prostatitis should be able to be cured with antibiotics, but very often it is difficult to culture a particular bacteria from the prostate, although the best way to try is by the urologist giving the prostate a massage and collecting the prostatic fluid for culturing.

 

Even then it's possible that no bacteria will be found, and that's one of the problems with this, because if there is an infection and it is deep within the prostate, it is to a great extent untouchable, not only protected by the prostate itself but also by biofilms which shield the bacteria from antibiotics.

 

Having said that, you may be lucky with an extended course of many months of a particular antibiotic, so let's hope that is the case.

 

If it is nonbacterial prostatitis, then nobody knows what causes it, so if that's the case you have to live with it. But there are some good points in as much as the condition can settle down on its own for many months on end, before rearing its ugly head again.

 

Strangely enough, even though bacteria can't be proven, the antibiotic doxycycline does have a settling effect and was commonly prescribed for this condition, sometimes for three months at a time, and that did work for me............. until the next time, but at least I got some respite.

 

Anti-inflammatories can also help, which would seem to suggest that some sort of inflammation in the prostate is taking place.

 

I posted quite a few posts on this some while back to someone else who was suffering, so it may be worthwhile looking through the archives to find the articles because there were some promising outcomes with combining a couple of antibiotics/drugs and some of those posts might be of help to you.

 

One thing you do not want to do is to worry about it, because it does not lead onto anything else if it is nonbacterial prostatitis, and the symptoms can be allayed quite remarkably by those which I have mentioned above.

 

If it is actually bacterial prostatitis and it can be cultured, then you are in good shape to be able to treat it, but be prepared for a long treatment time and possibly different drugs.

 

Learning to live with it is very often one way to overcome it, and of course not worrying about it.

 

PS. One last thing worth considering, this especially if you think it's a "bladder thing" is that it could be BPH (benign prostate hyperplasia) which can restrict the urine flow from the bladder, thereby the residual urine in the bladder causes an infection, and this can be a re-occurring situation.

 

Back on the subject of prostatitis, is the fact that it is hard to diagnose because there is nothing which specifically says that it is this, and with it usually come other effects such as an aching in the perineum and possibly testicles as well as the rump, then sometimes a little feverishness and backache, not to mention feeling under the weather for quite a few days.

 

Early on in the piece it will be trial and error, so good luck in your efforts.

Sheryl I am sorry I must have you confused with someone else.  

 

I was in Pattaya anyway and went to see Dr Nitti today.  The pain in my bladder realy escalated over the last 2 days so I decided to make a last minute appointment before I flew back today.  It looks like the Doctor in udon has misdiagnosed me, although Im not certain.  Dr Nitti examined my prostate and this time around it didnt hurt.  When the Udon Doctor examined the prostate it hurt like a swine, but there was a marked difference between the way Dr Nitti carried it out, and udon Doc carried out.  The Udon doc was pretty damned hard when he 'went in' which might be the reason it hurt.  Im not being crass when I say it was a borderline rogering he gave me i mean he was very very hard in his examination.  I just figured thats how they are carried out.  Dr Nitti just eased 2 fingers up and 'touched' the prostate a couple times.  It didnt hurt at all.

 

Urine test showed nothing bacterial or wrong in anyway.  Ultra sound showed nothing wrong also.

 

He said its probably not prostatitus and probably not a UTI, but the only way to be sure was to put a camera up my uretha to look inside the bladder as he susepcts the issue is bladder related.  The cost was 50,000 Baht, and there were no flights back to Udon untill Thursday (our return flight was today) so with 2 new flights, hotels and the examination I was looking at the best part of 75K just for that, not including the urine test and scans etc.  I dont have insurance and business has been tough this year (i made great money for years but ironically since I have spent all my savings on a house I lost my two biggest customers and the last year has been a struggle).  Long story short, I just couldnt afford it and said to the Dr if it is absolutely crucial I will do it, but is there another way?  Before I spend all this money?

 

He said he would give me the 'correct' antibiotics and various pills for bladder/prostate related issues, as maybe (just maybe) they will help. If they dont, i must go back in 2 weeks and have the camera thing.  When I say 'correct' antibiotics he actualy said the Udon Doctor had gave me the lowest form of antibiotic for prostate related issues so if it is that, those pills wouldnt have helped anyway.  

 

I am worrying about this quite a bit now.  I am not imagining this pain I promise you - driving back from the airport just now I felt every tiny bump in the road and my bladder hurts like a bugger.  I was close to tears last night with it.  But if its not prostate related, and the urine test/scans show nothing wrong, what on earth is wrong with me?  He said it is 'probably' not bladder cancer as I dont have the usual symptoms but who knows?

 

Im going to take the pills for 2 weeks and just hope to god i have nothing truly serious.  If after 2 weeks its no better I will take your suggestion and visit the hospital in Khon Kean as I suspect 50,000 baht might be a little extreme for the camera thing?  Plus flights and hotels to Pattaya?  And I know you are suggesting Kohn Kean not because it might be cheaper than bangkok Pattaya, but because it is a great hospital.  Im just assuming it would cost as much as BKK Pattaya.

 

Once again, thank you so much for your help.  It feels odd relying on a complete stranger for medical guidance, but it is sincerely appreciated very much indeed so again, thank you.

The hospital in Khon Kaen is a government hospital attached to a university. Even using their after hours clinic (which I recommend, in order to be treated by senior docs directly) costs will be about 1/4 that of the hospital you went to in Pattaya, so do not worry on that score.

 

Suggested urologist to ask for there:

 

Prof. Sombat Borwornpadungkitti

Prof. Kajit Pacheerat

 

There is also a very well regarded urologist at Khon Kaen hospital which is a different government hospital also in Khon Kaen. His name is Chagkrapan Predanon and he also has his own clinic on on Prachasamosorn Road. Mon-Fri 1800-2100 and Sat/Sun 09.30-1200. Directions are to go past the Centara Hotel heading out of town about 2-3 km. The clinic is in a line of small shops on your right just before the traffic lights. Tel 080 4037 474. This info is a couple of years old so could have changed, but worth a try.

 

it would greatly help if you could get a medical summary from Dr. Nitti including his recommendation for additional testing. Lacking that at least get your medical record from BPH to show. (Get from medical records department, just show your hospital number and ID, may be a small fee for photocopying).

In my experience, that of others and from what I have read, pain like that which you have described is not usually a feature of prostatitis, so something else could be happening...…...bladder stones are a possibility and can be very painful.

 

A cystoscopy will enable the urologist to view the prostate, bladder neck and the inside of the bladder, so that is an option you should consider and it is not painful and is over in about 10-15 mins.

Although it should not be too painful it is not painless and as he is already in pain might require more pain control than the norm.  I also had one done in a government hospital and indeed that was the most painful few minutes of my life so it can make a difference who performs.

I feel for you on that.....I have had about 6 or 7 as well as self cathetering 3 times a day for weeks, with no real pain, a little uncomfortable perhaps, but as you say it can make a difference as to who does it.

 

IMO if the xylocaine gel is applied correctly and left for a few minutes before insertion then all should be well, but technique does matter.

I am on Ciorofloxacin for Prostatitus for 6 weeks.

You dont have bladder cancer but yes if i was you i would get a Cystoscopy just  for peace of mind.but its not urgent and remember its painful.. but wait until after a CT scan and use of antibiotics first.

 

There are 2 types one had was   Rigid Cystoscopy which is better that they  put you to sleep and check your kidneys too.

 

I would be a bit skeptical of a 15000 qoute..does that include anathestists etc..sounds like he wont be putting u to asleep to do the full cystoscopy?

Your going to need to be watched after to make sure you can pee before going home...i dont reccomend you rush into this...

 

Now...yesterday i had a Cystoscopy and now my bladder is more sorer so expect your penis and bladder to be sore for at least a few weeks after.AND still taking antibiotics again for another 6 weeks.

 

Also buy Ural powders to drink to relieve the stinging.i am ural powders plus antibiotics after yhe cystoscopy

 

I hope they put you to sleep during the op...nothing worser than being awake and feeling the camera hit your urethra.watch a youtube vid

 

 

Do i think u need a cystoscopy urgently...No..you should give the antiobiotics time to work at least 6 weeks because mate your going be be no better off after the Cystoscopy..and just like me a feel like sOmeone kicked me in the bladder...and u def dont have cancer.you have same me prostitutus

 

But the best thing you can do NOW is to get a CT Scan done of KUB ...kidney urrthra bladder ..it will tell u of any tumours etc ...it takes 5 minutes in a xray machine.your urologist SHOULD of sent you for this.. mine did...he wouldnt do a Cystoscopy without it !

 

The urologist i saw said men who have big bellies have a problem sometimes with bladder pain(.belly over bladder)

 

AND he finds men ejaculate but dont urinate aftrerwards get bladder infections a lot.

 

Next step for you should be a CT Scan KUB...kidney bladder urethra....not the cystoscopy yet...see the results of the CT Scan if nothing shows...then continue on with the antibiotics but far better to get a CT Scan to see any tumours. 

If next year your still in pain then get then wait to get the cystoscopy, because as i said your going to be in worse pain after the cystoscopy for a few weeks just like i am believe me.penis stinging...peeing blood...bladder pain

 

I would be interested in your CT Scan KUB results. .
