Hello,

Prostate infection called as prostatitis usually pain in the region described and takes about a course of antibiotics to clear off.

Prostate cancer is very slow growing cancer and hence there are lot of non operative management of the cancer such as androgen ablation, radiotherapy and brachytherapy.

Both medical and surgical management have almost same results.

In the meanwhile continue with the antibiotics and drink plenty of water.

I hope this helps you

Hello,

If the antibiotics are not helping then antibiotic should be changed along with addition of Alfa - blocker to relax the bladder outlet which will help with the urination.

If it is not very distressing he can wait till Tuesday, but severe retention of urine is an indication for a visit to the ER and perhaps a catheter may needed temporarily.

I hope this helps you

what do u mean by severe retention he says that he can pee but it hurts alot.. and can it get to the stange that he could need a catheter put In.o Should the antiboctic should have worked by now its been 3 days now
Expert:  Dr. Tharun replied 4 years ago.
Hello,

Acute retention means not able to pass any amount of urine which causes abdominal pain due to distension.

Catheter is put to tide over the symptoms as in case of retention and severe pain as it will give relief to the patient while the infection subsides and also assure evacuation of urine which is very necessary for the infection to subside.Collected urine is prone to get infected and therefore persisting infection.

Usually antibiotics work by 3 days , if results are not encouraging it is changed.But as I said the real problem might be residual urine in the bladder which makes the infection resistant.

I hope this gives you more insight to the problem.

Regards

Dr.Tharun
