Posted 27 Mar 2018 at 21:42

I was diagnosed with an enlarged prostate,about 4 years ago after a visit with my gp an examination and some questions about visits to the toilet day and night time, but other than that no follow up or referral , when asked by the medical team who looking after me with my Sarcoma cancer I am often asked any other problems or concerns when i mention an enlarged prostate they often say your gp may refer you to see a specialist.

some discomfort when passing water, now and again pain in right side groin lasts 5 / 10 minutes, should I ask for a referral to a consultant but to be honest I have been back and forth to three hospitals in Liverpool since November last year going to another one is the last thing Iwant right now.

so sorry to on and on

Probably the best time proven and effective way of dealing with an enlarged Prostate (BPH) which is causing problems, is a TURP operation. This is where under anesthesia a patient has part of his prostate removed by a wire that is inserted. Has this possibility been mentioned?

Hello petnikev and welcome to the site

You really are going through the mill aren't you.

I can understand your not wanting to start attending different hospital appointments but having had BHP for four years and now experiencing pain you really do need it investigated.
Has your GP tested you for a urine infection because that can cause pain following peeing.

Ask to be referred to a urologist and he will be able to confirm with one examination whether you need further investigation.

Good luck. Please come back and let us know how you get on.

PS. There is no need to apologise for going "on and on" We all do it, especially when we have something that is bothering us.

Best Wishes

Sandra

Many Thanks to Sandra and Baz, for reply and your advice I will certainly take further advice just as soon as this Sarcoma in my right thigh is sorted, at the moment the wound is still open  and I've just gone into my sixth yes sixth month since my operation in Broadgreen Hospital in November last year, why is it still open you may be asking yourself,well when I had the first operation in 2015 it was followed by 5 days a week for  6 weeks that amounts to 30 sessions of Radiology, that Sarcoma cancer seemed to clear up just at the end of my two years of clinics the Sarcoma came back, the first was a soft tissue cancer but this one is on the bone in the same area, b so each time they stiched the wound it burst open again the Radiology damaged the skin and muscle , after months of VAC fitted then taken down fitted again, I  am left with an open wound that is slowly closing but still leaking a bit, people say to me that there's light at the end of the tunnel.

my problem is finding the blessed tunnel, really like your comments Sandra over the sails 

VAC stands for Vacuum Assisted Closure ,

Kindest Regards

Hi people

so sorry for the delay to contacting the site, lots have happened in life and family , I'll give brief update still having the problems with Sarcoma and after surgery, the wound is still open and its almost twelve months now, had two or three skin grafts that didn't take had VAC on and off that did't

work had silver dressings, iodine dressings, now trying honey dressings and large amount of vitamin c all to help the healing process, but on the back burner the consultant my consider a flap to close the wound its 50% / 50% whether it would work he cant do the reconstruction with skin, muscle and blood vessels from across my abdomen because of previous surgery and diagonal wound from my belly button down to the pubic area, he may try to his words go into the right groin area and flip it across to my right thigh, its a common procedure the flap option as similar procedure is used in breast

reconstruction, the damage to the skin . muscle was caused by the 30 sessions of radiology I had after the sarcoma operation the skin can't be stitched to weak damaged it just opens again, not done anything over prostrate problem thinking all the blood tests,ct and mri scans would show something, to add to all that I now have night sweets , wet so much just like taking T shirt out of the washing machine ive just got an appointment for next week with my GP,then its back to the consultant at the Royal Hospital end of the month, back to Whiston Hospital the week after to see the plastic consultant.

 

so so sorry to go on I'm aware many of you have far more concerns than me

take care rant over kettle on
