I went to a different urologist last week and she told me I either have prostatitis or pelvic floor muscle disorder.
She took a prostate fluid smaple and urine culture. I have a follow up appt in another week.
I'm on Cipro 500mg's twice a day for two months and Uroaxtral.
I started taking the antibiotics and the next day I felt 80% better, then my symptoms returned the following day and dont seem to be getting better.
I'm also finding that first thing in the morning I'm sometimes not able to urinate dispite needing too (very scary).
How long will it take for this to start to clear if it really is prostatitis?
Symptoms: Urinary hestency, retention, sometimes low flow, off and on pain and tightness in the prostate region.
wow, I have exact same symptoms. Been to 3, yes 3, urologists to figure out what to do. Had rectal ultrasound and bladder ultra sound. Have alot of calcificiation in prostate.
This has been going on non stop since THanksgiving and I know some guys here have suffered for years, so I don't mean to moan about it.
My latest concern is either cancer of prostate or bladder and I am only 50. Cultures came back negative. Waiting on the urine cytology report.
has anyone had the cystoscopy? I am told it can make your symptoms worse? don't know what else to do. Taking hot baths, ibuprofen, quercitin and uroxetral... what to do what to do....
