yes it can. My son (30 yrs old) was having a problem with no bowel movement for 8 days, he was in a lot of pain. We took him to the emergency room (after using a number of laxitives because we thought he was just very constipated) and they said it was due to an enlarged prostrate. The doctor prescribed a couple of things and after a few days he was much better. He has been pain free for about 6 months now but just this past week the pain has returned. I am now researching it and am finding that sitting to much causes or aggravates the condition and collidal silver water is said to help but we haven't tried it yet.
I have an enlarged prostate. I recently had extremely painful bowel movements, with excruciating pain lasting 4 or 5 hours. Went to doctors, had CT scan done which revealed only a small, pea-sized something. Doc's put me on Cipro antibiotic and Flowmax. They also told me to start taking fiber (Metamucil/psyllium) and drink lots of water. They said muscles are cramping - like a "Charlie horse". "Take warm sits bath to help relieve. After 2 weeks now, much much better.
Hi. I've had enlarged prostate problems ever since an early age.Even at an early age I could always tell when it was getting inflamed because it would effect my bowel movements. I've read dozens of brochures and books on the subject of the prostate and constipation is never mentioned. I've mentioned it to doctors in the past but the closest thing I got to an answer was " Sure, look where it's located"..Anyway glad I heard someone bring up the matter... I'm gonna try the Collidal Silver Water...Anything else anyone would suggest , please let me know. I'd appreciate it....

I have a enlarge prostate my Dr prescribed Flomax for me to take it. It causes me not to ejaculate. Does anybody out there have any suggestions that I can suggest to my Dr. So I can have a normal ejaculation....????
My enlarged prostate restricts bowel movements resulting in a build up of pressure so when I finally get the urge I only have 2 or 3 minutes warning due to the fact I have to take psyllium husk every day because I have diverticulitis this results in the occasional embarrassing mishap.
