My ego certainly is coming into play since you have continuously insulted me - and you question my integrity?
Evidently I'm not trying to give you any advice. You asked me a load of questions and I merely replied to them.
Vik doesn't think he has a prostate infection, what you are discussing isn't even relevant to the thread and isn't helping anyone here. Go to the prostatitis forums on health boards and medhelp if you want to help people - changing the subject is frowned upon and has already been done enough here.
I'll show discipline in that I won't be returning to the thread. You're right, all this is negative - you instigated it, see ya later.View Thread
You haven't humiliated me, you've made yourself look like a twat. In actually fact I have other info that I haven't shared here because it's related to prostatitis.
I never searched about the lump because I was told by the head uro at my local hospital that it was related to prostatitis. This meant I have focused on researching the prostatitis situation and not the lump, until very recently when I asked you. The lump being related to prostatitis has come straight from the horse's mouth - so I am not the only one who thinks he's right over other people's advice am I? I am willing to accept it isn't related to an infection or prostatitis, but you're criticism is hypocritical considering the fact you have read my comment about the uro saying that it is related to prostatitis, and yet you say the uros know nothing. So which is it, am I to listen to you or the uro? Apparently I think I know everything if I say it's related to prostatitis, but that came from a doctor - evidently you must know best in this circumstance, ay? I'm not saying I haven't been foolish by focussing solely on infection, but the fact you criticise me whilst overlooking your own flaws shows how bad your attitude stinks.
You don't want me to email you about this because you want everyone to see your advice, but this is not the place for lengthy discussions. Sorry counterso, since he doesn't want me to email him back I have to put this reply here.
Non-bacterial prostatitis can be cured by aceteylcysteine (a relatively harmless mucolyticum that can be purchased as a supplement), another thing I plan on trying, there's a study on it and I've found others who it had helped. I am also going to try and rule out infection because this all started with an infection they failed to culture, and after talking to a leading infectious disease specialist, she believes there is an infection. I'm working with her as we speak so we will know soon enough! Maybe infection is two dimensional thinking, but my circumstances are leading me in that direction, so I think this criticism is excessively harsh. If it gets to the point where it's evident that I defiantly don't have an infection (something I will know within weeks now), I will take the supplement that has definitely cured people. Of course I will try the quick fixes before I devote myself to your long term fix that may not even fit my situation. That said, i do believe the Stanford protocol can cure despite infection and I am definitely going to pursue that route
I am also going to abstain for as long as I can, although I rarely masturbate - sex drive is low. I've put a load of personal info on here, so I don't know what Mike is talking about. He seems to think I'm whacking off every day - and regardless of what he thinks, he is out of order to have criticised me so personally, incorrectly and harshly.
I don't care if I'm a stranger Mike, you are out of order. You told me I'm taking it too personally when you can't hack that a stranger hasn't fully implemented your advice or mindset, so you start acting like a spoilt child, saying you 'humiliated' me - oh dear. Maybe these are my embarrassing persons issues, but you are embarrassing yourself.
I always planned on devoting myself to your advice after I ruled out infection. As you know I've had some stuff going on recently so I haven't been in touch. I've been meaning to use these next tests as a platform to make sense of what I should do next. You're right, I don't want to devote myself yet.
Vik, it must have seemed like I was dismissing your views on cpps and infection ( including this lump issue), I was merely trying to supply an alternative view, I had considered your views and I should have verbally acknowledged them instead of only providing my views, it probably seemed like I ignored them and I apologise for that. I've been massively considering the things you were talking about . Evidently you have concerns about infection.View Thread
I will reply to you in email because this is not the place for a lengthy discussion. I haven't implemented the stuff from the book but have used some of the stuff from the massage site. I'm sorry for what I said, but you have just appeared to be some random guy attacking me for advice and insulting me. Why not contact through email?
Basic fact is I wanted to be in touch with Vik as another success story to get advice from. You never mentioned quercitin. I will email you.View Thread
Yeah that's fine, I appreciate your help. I will join the forum and I already had 'a headache in the pelvis' book, although I need to pick it up again! I'm going to pursue both possibilities, infection and 'the headache'. I have also already looked into and considered quercitin, it is definitely on my list of things to try sooner rather than later.
I'm sure people are wondering why I have gone on about cpps and prostatitis - it's because for me (at least chronologically) my lump symptoms corresponded with the prostate symptoms. I was just concerned that for some, infection is a factor. I don't know who this new guy is who has hurled ignorance my way, but I would never put info up on something I have zero clue about. Those vitamins can help you fight infections and will give you the best chance of getting well again, alongside treatment. Treatment is the main thing. I never once said any of this is curative - other than the cream that factually can cure infections. It was just a suggestion.
Everything I have suggested I have either taken or am taking. Evidently it's not enough on it's own to help, but addressing dietary insufficiencies and other things can only help your body.View Thread
That's the cream that is reported by the BBC to cure MRSA.
So there's my evidence. What can back up your ignorant argument with? Nothing.
Now I'm trying to give supplemental advice here. Not saying just go and cure yourself with some stuff from the health food store. You're deluded if you think people who develop issues like this might not have deficiencies from time to time. Grow up, fool.View Thread
You are clearly the one who doesn't know what he's talking about. I'm not saying vitamins are curative but they are definitely a massive aid to your immune system. It's a well known fact vitamin D activates your white blood cells, you need vitamin D to turn them into T cells which kill infection. I'm just giving advice, you absolute fool, factual advice at that.
Do you actually think I think I know all the answers? How deluded are you to think I would be asking questions here if I thought I could cure myself through that. It can help and it's worth a try. Do you even bother taking any vitamins? Just eat burgers and drink coke and wait for a doctor to do everything. Fact is if you need antibiotic you will also need a strong immune system to fight the infection , not least because antibiotics will also weaken your immune system.
Talking about taking action I'm actually dealing with an infectious disease specialist while everyone else is getting the run around from unhelpful urologists.View Thread
Got an std, took azithromycin and it went much , much worse ( drastically more painful) then 2-4 weeks later while it was still bad I got these symptoms. I told an infectious disease specialist and she said she thinks the bacteria was resistance to the azithromycin. My penis has been discoloured for 2 years now (alongside the lumps). Trouble is with the lump that it goes up and comes down depending on the state of my penis so not many docs have seen it, other than one uro who I showed a pic to and he said it was a 'classic symptom of prostatitis'. I have had two docs recognise the discolouration, one was at the very start (associated it with std and said it would go away - it hasn't) and the other was the one who diagnosed thrombophlebitis. I do believe the vein symptoms are that, but I have the thin translucent cords too and the lump has never been given a diagnosis. I honestly believe infection could be to blame for my symptoms.View Thread
