Re: Prostatitis or BPH - Urinary Issues

I had my appt. with the Urologist. He determined that I do have prostatitis. He prescribed me 4 weeks worth of anti-biotics (Cipro) and gave me Flomax to take until the Prostatitis subsides. The funny thing is, I was actually getting a little better everyday leading up to my Urologist exam. However, the day after my exam when I had the DRE, etc.,. I started experiencing extreme urinary hesitancy and chronic starting and stopping during urination. Can the DRE itself irritate the gland and cause more inflammation? Also, how long does prostatitis generally take to clear up?
