Not again.

I took Hubs to the ER yesterday morning. He has acute prostatitis.

I have never seen him in so much pain. He actually shook from it. I was so thankful when they gave him a shot of demerol, the doc commented that it was as much for me as it was for him. He is now on pain meds, anti-inflammatories, and antibiotics.

This is the second time he has been struck down by it. And we still are looking for a doctor to give us some answers as to why. The last time, the antibiotic course was almost 3 months! He has a lifelong history of kidney stones, and they think there may be a connection. It is usually caused by a back up of a UTI into the prostate, but he never presents with symptoms of a tract or bladder infection prior to it, literally, bringing him to his knees.

He has been poked, MRI'ed, CAT scanned, and ultrasounded. He has pissed gallons, and had quarts of blood drawn. But still they don't know what is causing it. He has an appointment with another urologist on Tuesday. I'm am wrought with worry...I hate to see him suffering, and so frustrated.
