Customer Question
I am suffering from...

I am suffering from bacterial prostatitis since 2010. Oral and IV antibiotics failed to cure. Will direct prostate injection cure my condition.

Doctor's Assistant: Is the condition chronic, or acute?

Chronic

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Ecoli and Enterococcus are the infections. I want to try direct injection from Dr Song in China. Any idea if that is safe and whether it will work.

Dear customer,

Thank you for the question.

Though there are a few case reports that suggest a beneficial result with an injection of antibiotic into the prostate but only on the basis of these case reports this treatment approach cannot be recommended. Studies using this approach have to be done and only if the results are beneficial in the majority of patients in the study this treatment method can be recommended. So, at present, there is no convincing evidence that this approach is safe or effective. I don't think that this will work for everyone and can be harmful as well since there is no documentation of short term and long term complications with this treatment. Therefore you should avoid this treatment since even this treatment is not likely to cure your condition.

Take care.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
