Have Urology Questions? Ask a Urologist Online.
No, culture report from original infection stated resistance to Trimethoprim/Sulfa. Repeat urine culture was negative. Assuming it is still the same infection, bacteria are resistant. Urologist was unwilling to culture EPS.
Does it make sense to insist on culturing EPS to see what bacteria are there ?
I assume you are pessimistic about Cefuroxime ?
Levaquin and Cipro have comparable safety profiles as both are fluoroquilones, no ? Would Cipro course also be for 30 days ?
What would abdomen/pelvic CT scan's diagnostic value be in this situation ?
At this point, am I still in the acute bacterial prostatitis phase ? 30 days is for chronic prostatitis, no ?
How do I switch from Cefuroxime to Cipro ? Stop one/start another same day ? No antagonism ?
What do I do if I have a bad reaction to Cipro again ?
What are the comparative odds fluoroquinolone antibiotic will eradicate infection vs. cephalosporin ?
