Sal, I'm looking for some suggestions also. The lack of responses to your post is somewhat discouraging. I got seeds June 15th and life is different. Immediately had problems urinating, and still cath 3-4 times a day. About 3 weeks after procedure, the burning started. I can only get about 2-3 ounces every hour, and the burning takes my breath away and leaves me weak. I get through the day and run home to a hydrocodone and the bed. Have tried several brands of urinary pain relief tablets, but they don't touch the burning - just turn everything orange!

Maybe someone out there has been through this and has some suggestions.

Good luck.
