[display_name id=”0″]Tight muscles in your back are pressing onto the nerves going to your bladder to give you pains in it.
You can have pressure on the nerves going to your stomach as well to have the pains there. To get rid of these pains you have to free up your back muscles to get the pressure off the nerves and here’s how to do that:
(do from a sitting position)
Place your left hand on your left leg next to your body. Place your right hand over your left shoulder, fingers over the back and the palm in the front and firmly pull down on them and hold. After 30 seconds slowly lower your body forward and to the outside of your left leg, keeping your left arm fairly straight as you do. When you reach your lap remain there for another 10 seconds, release the pressure but rest there for another 30 seconds. Then reverse your hand positions and do your right side.
For best results relax your body first by taking a deep breath and exhaling then remain this relaxed.

My doctor just told me that I have an enlarged prostate and prescribed Avodart?Does anyone know of exercises I might take or a good diet to reduce it. I am worried, but my doctor had so many patients in to see him that day that I could not sit down with him for a lengthy session.

[display_name id=”0″]Symptoms of enlarged prostate can be successfully relieved in the early stages by the herbal remedy saw palmetto (Serenoa repens or Sabal serrulata).The Swiss naturopath Alfred Vogel discovered the beneficial effects of saw palmetto during his exploration of the Americas in the 1950s. There he learned that the Seminole, a First Nation tribe of Florida, had used the berries of saw palmetto for hundreds of years for many conditions such as the onset of prostate enlargement and bladder infections. He also learned that the Seminole had another very important use for this small palm tree: they used it as a love medicine to help improve erectile dysfunction.

What Causes Prostate Problems?

With increasing age, male hormones change and testosterone levels decrease. The prostate, situated below the bladder, enlarges. Because the urethra runs through the prostate, the enlarged prostate narrows the flow, leading to one of the early symptoms of enlarged prostate: an increased urge to urinate, even during the night. Unfortunately, most men ignore this symptom.

As the disease progresses, men with an enlarged prostate experience additional symptoms such as delayed urine stream, dribbling, and the sensation of incomplete voiding. Since residual urine remains in the bladder after urination, an ideal growth medium for bacteria is created, and men face increased risk of urinary infection. In more advanced stages of the disease, urine is backed up to the kidneys. In these final stages only surgical intervention can help.

Berries: the Solution

Progression of benign enlargement of the prostate (BPH) can be halted or, at least, clearly delayed in the initial stages. Pharmaceutical preparations generally are effective but often have side effects such as loss of sex drive and erectile dysfunction. In contrast, organic saw palmetto is very well tolerated and is as effective as pharmaceuticals, if taken over a sufficient period of time. Researchers at the Center for Chronic Diseases in Minneapolis reported in Public Health Nutrition in 2000 that saw palmetto extract can increase urine flow and reduce frequency of night-time urination within 30 days of use.

Organic saw palmetto is the unrivalled leader in relief of symptoms of enlarged prostate and has been widely tested for its outstanding efficacy and tolerance. Organic saw palmetto soothes prostate symptoms in a natural way, without influencing the hormone cycle. It also acts against inflammatory alterations of the prostate and urethra. Accompanying swelling and irritation are reduced and voiding problems are solved.

When early symptoms of BPH appear, see a health care professional to get a proper diagnosis. Then try organic saw palmetto. If symptoms do not improve after three months, you must go back to the doctor.

Recovery for prostate cancer surgery?My father was recently diagnosed and has to choose between radiation and surgery. He’s leaning toward surgery. I am looking to hear from anyone who has had the surgery and, if so, what was the recovery like?

[display_name id=”0″]I had my robotic prostatectomy surgery October 2005 in Detroit with Dr. Mennon. I am 48 years old, very good health, exercise regularly. My Gleason score was 6 and they were able to execute nerve-sparing procedures. If you “must” have your prostate removed, the Robotic method is the way to go unless there has been a new development in the last year that I do not know about.Henry Ford Hospital has a very informative website to give you all the information you need. There is another good facility in Columbus, Ohio. OSU – Both links are listed below
The surgery was a piece of cake, six small cuts on my stomach, which healed quickly. I had a lot of pain in my shoulders from the gas, which they pump into me during surgery. Not everyone has this, but it took about 2 days for mine to go away.I had a catheter for 10 days, which was not fun, but after getting used to the routine empties and cleanings, it was not as bad as I thought it would be. I then had to use a heavy continence pad and progressed to a smaller pad as time went on (2-months). After 2 weeks I was feeling very good. Actually, one day after the catheter came out, I went back to my normal activities except exercise. No lifting.

I was very worried about holding my water and began to wonder if I would ever be normal again. This is something you cannot rush! After two months, I was able to wear a very thin pad, which was only in case of an accident. After 3 months and up to today (8 months later), I am in complete control. If I am doing heavy lifting or stretch backwards with a full bladder, there have been a few times that I lost a dribble up to a teaspoon but have always been able to suppress it. Common sense says, do not drink a lot before going to bed, especially in the beginning.

Now lets talk about the number one concern for most men. Erectile Dysfunction. I’ll be honest, nothing down there so far.
Going into the ninth month, I have tried Viagra and there is still nothing, not even the start of something. I am very discouraged at this point. My wife keeps telling me it will get better. The doctors say a year but I think it’s going to be longer. Remember, I was very discouraged about holding my water but “it did get better”. I am very hopeful the erection will be the same. I have started research for alternative methods just in case, but I’m not ready to pursue them for quite awhile. It is tough to find someone to talk about this and be honest. Even Dr. Mennon and his team avoided the issue.

I was asked, “Would I do it again”? My answer: Did I have a choice? I wanted the cancer out of me. If it had went to the bone or elsewhere, things would have been much worse.

Prior to surgery, I remember my emotions running wild. To keep it short and without detail, even suicide was seriously considered. Man, I am glad I never pulled a stupid stunt like that. I really believe such a thought has entered all minds of men in this situation even if only for a minute. HEY DON’T DO IT. I kept telling myself, in a few months this will all be behind me. I was right! Life is great. I have a beautiful wife who loves me very much and I hope to be a grandpa in the future.
To think I was willing to throw all that away, how foolish.

I know this is somewhat crude, but lets not beat around the bush and tell it like it is. I wish someone had told me this prior to surgery to keep me from doing something stupid. Thank God I didn’t.

Life is good and I will deal with my one problem as time permits.
I am very hopeful all will be normal again. If not, I have found there are many remedies to alter my problem.

Good luck men, May God give you Strength.
