When every other form of Prostatitis Treatment has failed, when periods of excruciating pain stretch into years, when all hope of a traditional cure has long since disappeared, a Prostatitis sufferer's request for a radical option is not surprising.
Removing the pain of Prostatitis with an Operation
Surgery for prostatitis may be tried in the case of chronic bacterial prostatitis where there has been no response to long-term antibiotic treatment and where the ongoing urinary tract infections have greatly reduced the enjoyment of life for the prostatitis patient.
Such surgery may remove part of the prostate, or remove prostate stones, but this gives no guarantee of any degree of success, indeed it may make the symptoms worse. And it depends very much on whether the right places are removed
Clearly, surgery like this is only done only if all other attempts have failed.
Anecdotal Accounts of Successful Radical Prostate Removal Surgery for Prostatitis Patients
More radical is the removal of the whole prostate, as this story will relate, however it does have a happy ending for the Prostatitis patient. (NB: Removal of the whole prostate in this discussion is not related to cancer in any way).
As the above story relates, a radical prostatectomy is a last-ditch attempt to regain a normal life. A number of patients have opted for a TURP (Transurethral resection of the prostate) first which has shown little success in any reduction of symptoms. Patients who have gone on to removal of the whole prostate cite the earlier TURP operation as making the following total removal more difficult.
Read the words of another prostatitis patient who had a radical prostate removal and his thoughts soon after the operation.
And another here who had a successful outcome after many years of suffering from his chronic prostatitis symptoms.
Probably the most complete account of a radical prostate removal can be given by David Radford who relates the background and operation as well as how he was faring three years later..
Treatments that can Give an Alternative to Surgery for Prostatitis
One of the most frustrating aspects of Prostatitis is the inability of Medical treatment to often detect pathogens causing Chronic Prostatitis, and the inability of oral antibiotics to penetrate the necessary tissues to effect a cure.
When repeated courses of antibiotics fail, and attempts to isolate pathogens also fail, the cycle of endless pain and associated symptoms continue, and slowly worsen, to the point as demonstrated above, of men being forced to resort to very radical surgery.
