Was any infection diagnosed ?

What was the organism?

What was its sensitivity report?

What other investigation have been done?

i replied to your request,could you please respond with the medical information i so desperately need.
Thank you for the information.

Avodart will reduce the size of the prostate by preventing the conversion the hormone testosterone to its active form. It is unlikely to help in prostatitis.

It needs to be known the organism or bacteria responsible for the infection by appropriate culture & sensitivity testing .

This way you can get the proper antibiotic for its treatment.

As it is occurring repeatedly it will be helpful to do a repeat culturre after the treatment to see the infection has been eliminated,

An ultrasound or scan can also be done to see the state of the prostate.

I hope this information will help.

Please ask if you need any clarification.

Best wishes.
