Hello I'm Dr Chip
I assume you're male?
The phone call offer wasn't from me and you don't have to accept it
Did you have a urinalysis and a prostate check?
In that case it probably isn't a prostate infection here and basically you're in the clear.
Most likely this is just a little urethral inflammation from no specific infection and nothing to worry about
And the azithromycin would have cleared the Chlamydia had you had it
Please let me know if you need any more information
Then you were totally covered for Chlamydia and gonorrhea as well as the mycoplasma
So it's just a lingering urethral inflammation that will clear soon
The better option would be over the counter 1% hydrocortisone cream
Gently with a Q tip
And this can linger for up to a month
This isn't a urethral tear--I'm sure of that
But the back pain would only be related if you had a prostate infection
That's consistent with a prostate infection and with my patients I prescribe either Septra or Cipro for a full month for that
The GGT is one liver enzyme but your value was low so nothing worrisome there
Yes and it would explain the lingering urethral pain
Just takes a digital exam by a doctor to look for bogginess and tenderness
Yes--Septra DS--only one strength--twice a day or Cipro 500 mg twice a day for a month
You can try oral probiotics and vitamin C but that isn't likely to do the trick
No--that's purely prostate
I'll be happy to continue if you need me to but for now please click on the 5 star excellent rating icon so I can get credit for my time with you
You don't need a prostate scan--just a finger in the rectum
And just a urinalysis to check again for white cells--blood work doesn't apply here
