      Hello, Your diet can have a noticeable impact on your enlarged prostate symptoms, with some foods only adding to your discomfort and inflaming any irritation. Please see the link for two articles below where I discuss both good foods and worst foods for an enlarged prostate and what you can do to minimalise their impact on your symptoms. I am not aware of any problems with consuming apple cider vinegar and prostate issues, should you wish to try it. I hope this information is helpful to you.

    Just for interest I am under a urologist. He arranged an operation(TURPS) in Feb 2005 which I cancelled because saw palmetto was taking affect. Ever since I have been taking 2 x 320 mg pr dy. My PSA has been 20 for the last 5 years! Symptoms have only got marginally worse - quite livable with! (Don't trouble to reply)

      I am sorry to hear that you are in need of a catheter. In men with an enlarged prostate, this can sometimes be needed because of acute or chronic retention of urine and treatment of the underlying problem will have the aim of doing away with this inconvenience. I am sure that your GP will be able to give you more information on what the treatment plans are.
