Anyone have B.P.H. and still ride?

Hi guys, sorry to get personal, but I could use your help/advice. After many years of dealing with prostatitis and other prostate issues, I thought I finally had it under control enough to ride again. Well, after three nice days of cruisin` I`m paying for it! Just need to know if any of you guys have these issues and what you do to deal with it in order to keep riding? B.T.W. If you see my `07 9er in the "for sale" forum, you`ll know why! Hope not!

you should be able to customize the seat and ride pain free... call sargents or corbin... or a local custom interior place..

Sorry to hear that ...

A few have already suggested it, but new seat. Give one of the listed or do a search for Spencer and get your seat modified. You could also try a good pair of cycling shorts. I would think you will always be limited to shorter rides.

Again, if you describe the situation and pressure areas ... a modified seat would be your best bet.

It's better to have loved and lost than live with the psycho for life!

Arent the for Hemmroids ? I used one after I broke my Coccox - not funny, horrible pain, espically when your a courier and drive 250/350 miles a day -

But really, +1 on the cycling shorts - Get a good pair with a nice chamois in it, I wear mine when I ride off road and love them. Hope you can find some way to still ride, it will keep you young - This is an issue 95% of men will have to deal with , if we live long enough !

You need a large saddle to lower your pressure with a cutaway at the hot spot. We love our BMS saddle!

Ship your bike to Cali for the full custom design and ride it home with ease!

Can you describe the miscomfort, and let us know what we're in for eventually?

It`s pain in the perineum area. Best way to explain it is to sit on your bike as you regularly would and then put a golf ball right behind your jewels!! If you don`t have prostate issues already, then you may never have to worry about it affecting your riding.

I appreciate your comments. I figured I would get "ribbed" pretty bad for bringing up a topic such as this but so far you guys have been good about it,thanks. I wanted to wait a little while before I re-posted so I could get as many thoughts and opinions as possible. It seems that if you re-post to soon on here people assume your problem is solved and they stop responding. I know it`s a touchy subject and most men would prefer not to talk about it, but I would be hard pressed to believe that with all the guys out there that I am the only one with this issue! Thanks for listening and if there`s anyone who has had success fighting this disease please comment!!

I think you're doing great, I know if I ride a full day I don't want to get back in the saddle for at least a week!

A friend just got bad news of an elevated blood score during his annual physical. Here's the enlightenment, prostate cancer feeds off his testocerone! He's on drugs to stop production. I told him to shop for Neuticals!
