HiI am not sure what your question is.we do not treat here.I have a suggestion for you.There is a study that showed efficacy of hyperbaric oxygen treatments in this type of situation.I would talk to your doctor, but you might have to find other doctors that are open to this.Maybe not, as the urologist should be aware of this. OK, so you might have more questions or want to give me more information: Please use reply to expert if you have further questions.
