Peter’s Story – A Case Study – About 4 years ago, Peter (55) began experiencing symptoms related to irregular prostate function. The problems not only effected his personal life but also professional. With pressure on his job and marriage, Peter began a journey to find the road back to the health and freedom he once had. Here is his story.
When prostate problems begin they also affect the psyche. In my job as an administrator, I am often under pressure but must remain focused and confident. Two years ago, I felt a constant urge to urinate although it tended to happen at night. Needless to say, my sleep suffered as a result.
After extensive research, I realized learned that many men my age struggle with similar problems. Things got worse in the following months and work became a real challenge.
Normal Routines Become More Difficult
During meetings I started to get strange looks because of how many times I got up to use the bathroom in a span of an hour. A constant feeling of residual urine and problems with urination increasingly made office life difficult.
After visiting a doctor, I was diagnosed with an enlarged prostate. I wasn’t surprised since 3 out of 5 men over the age of 50 suffer the same issues. Regardless of how common the problem is among men my age, I was still concerned about what the future would be like.
