Hi my name is Brian,
While I'm most likely younger than the majority of you men. I am also experiencing horrible health problems as a result of what I believe is ultimately a prostate problem.
I took the drug finasteride or Propecia for hair loss for 8 years. I foolishly took it solely for vanity reasons. I began to get ED, a loss of sensation so I discontinued the drug. I have since had a ton of new sides come on as a quiting use of it including loss of energy, muscle, loss of memory, horrible mental well being, bone loss, changes in vision, etc. I am dying a slow death and I am only 30 years old.
Some of the men on the Propecia forum have had their prostate size measured and it appears most have a size of about 13-15cc. This size seems to be much smaller than 20-30cc that I have read is a normal prostate size.
My question is, Could a considerably smaller prostate cause some of these problems? I know a broad based question, but I imagine many of you have become experts in terms of knowledge of the prostate. Or do you have a good resource to point me to or doctor?
Lastly, God bless all of you, that I imagine are going through incredibly difficult trying times with fighting the horrible disease of Prostate Cancer.
