Testimonial : Urinary retention which the surgery can't fix

I would like to take this opportunity to express my deepest gratitude to Dr. Chi for giving me a new lease on life. She is a wonderful person and a dedicated professional who truly cares for her patients.

I have been suffering from the symptoms of prostate enlargement and urinary retention for the past six years, taking prescription drugs to ease the problems. In January of this year, urologists advised me to have prostate surgery.

After I had the surgery, although many of my symptoms subsided, the problem of retention was not resolved. Due to the fact that my bladder (as a result of carrying so much liquid for so many years) was distended, my surgeon told me that I had two choices: either install a urinary bag or catheterize myself four to six times a day.

I asked them if there was a cure for this issue, but they responded saying that my bladder had lost its muscle mass and it was unlikely to regain the muscle tissue. The prospect of catheterizing or carrying a urinary bag was so agonizing that I was plunged into a deep depression.

When I discussed this issue with Dr. Chi, she simply said, with the utmost confidence, that she could help me. After two and half weeks of acupuncture sessions, my retention significantly reduced from 600 cc’s to 100 cc’s. I cannot find the words to express my happiness. I immediately made an appointment with my urologist just to make sure that I wasn’t dreaming. When he examined me, he was astonished and told me that I no longer had to catheterize or use a bag.

I feel I owe a great debt of gratitude to Dr. Chi – she saved me from a life of agony. She treated me with the utmost care and compassion. I highly recommend her. Thank you Dr. Chi.
