Prostatitis?

I had a bout of orchitis (infection in left testes) that responded to 5 days of antibiotic. My doc arranged a testiculatr ultrasound that was clear.

A few days later, I developed a pain in the perineum, and can feel that my prostate is inflammed. No pain on urinating, but some when ejaculating.

The pain goes quite quickly if I lie down flat, but gets really sore when I sit, and less sore when I'm standing.

I'm not sure whether this is prostatitis?

I've had prior uro, and have a urethral stricture. I have an appointment with my urologist in 5 weeks, but this pain in the butt (literally) is driving me mad. Anyone advise on what I can do for the next 5 weeks? Should I get my doc to prescribe cipro for 4 weeks? Are anti-inflamatories any good? I'm even thinking of the brocolli treatment?!

Thanks.
