I had prostatitis for 18 months and I tried a Specialized Avatar with cutout which didn't work. Then I tried a Spongy Wonder noseless saddle which also didn't work. When I say didn't work, I mean that the pain was exasperated after I rode. That doesn't mean you shouldn't try it. Not riding my bike for a year and a half was difficult and I gained 25+ pounds.

After a year I started to look at trikes but eventually I got better and I didn't have to go that route.

My problem is different than yours so take what I write with a grain of salt. My PSA was not high but I had plenty of pain everyday. It still hurts but not as much and I don't ride everyday but at least I can ride when I want.

Good luck.
