Patient: 68 years old, male, Michigan
Practitioner: Aaron Li
Patient has been having problems passing urine due to prostatitis. He has had elevated PSA levels for the past 15 years.
In his initial exam, the patient states he has had to use a catheter in order to pass urine. The flow of his urine is at a 6/10 in strength. His PSA level is at 20 ng/mL, while a healthy PSA level should be at a 4.0ng/mL. He is on antibiotics (Cipro) for a few weeks. Urine has appeared normal for the past week, and has gotten the catheter out during that time. His sleep quality has been up and down. Stress from work has left him waking up in the middle of the night and unable to go back to sleep.
4 months into treatment, he notices his urine flow is stronger, light in color, and has no smell.
His PSA level has dropped down from a little over 20 ng/mL to 8.8 ng/mL.
His new goal is to decrease his medication from three a day to one a day (Flomax). His cholesterol level is high.
9 months into treatment his PSA is down to 8.2 ng/mL. He states his stress from work is affecting his well being and may retire. He still needs to take three Flomax per day. Cholesterol and triglyceride levels are still high. Patient states that constant acupuncture treatments help him focus more and wants to be in once a week treatment.
11 months into treatment, he no longer needs to be on Flomax medication.
His cholesterol and triglyceride levels are still high, but he has started to take Lipitor for that. He retired and stress has been decreased. He still wakes up a few times a night to go to the restroom. He has been picking up more hobbies such as playing music and walking more often. Right now he walks about two miles per day and hopes to double that.
Patient has now gone back down to a normal PSA level and is no longer on medication. His prostatitis is gone, he is able to use the restroom normally, and he has seen an exponential improvement in being able to pick up hobbies and become more physically active again. He is now on a monthly maintenance treatment.
