  • Pelvic pain syndrome and restoration

    I had been restoring for a while when I got a bacterial prostate infection. After a sample and bacterial culture to confirm the infection, the infection was treated with antibiotics, but I was left with Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome.

    I have an amazing physical therapist who is helping me and the symptoms have been gradually subsiding over the last two years.

    I have been advised not to use my tugger (the CAT II) for a while. A few months ago I had tried to use it again and it seemed to make things worse.

    Any thoughts on the best way to restore while dealing with chronic pelvic pain syndrome?

    I'm not using a ring at the base of my penis - might that limit the tugging and pressure to just the skin on my penis and not the whole pelvic area?

    My thought would simply to limit tugging time to no more than a few hours a day at no more than moderate tension.

      I suffer from sporadic prostatitis and residual vasectomy pains. The pain radiates from the perineal regions, illiac/groin, and even up into my urethra at times... To continue with restoration you may want to focus on gentle manual methods until symptoms dissipate IF they ever do. Don't give up, just give in to the fact that right now using a device is out. You can restore without the use of a device if you are good with Google, your hands, and some items found around the house...all of which that don't have to put pressure on your pelvis. Good luck.
      Listen to your body. Do what works for you. Best of health! Good luck!

        I had this too. It was recurring and I believe caused by the DTR. Regardless I'm back on it now.

        I don't have any advice to offer other than the prostate infection was horrendous and I make sure to keep my devices very clean now. Doctor didn't think the device caused it. Said it could be "anything." But I have my suspicions.
