Yes this can be common with a prostate infection and they can be slow to heal up.
If the prostate is enlarged neutering will help it shrink back down to more normal size. Neutering removes testosterone and that is what can cause the prostate to swell.
You can see a diagram of the prostate in a male dog here
You can see if the prostate swells it can cause problems with urinating.
Hope this helps you!
