I would really appreciate any thoughts.
I started with non bacterial prostatitis 4 years ago following heavy lifting and stretching whilst decorating. PSA 0.3 and DRE ok but sore. I get checked usually every 18months as Iost my dad due to prostate cancer and I've become paranoid about it. I didn't need to take meds as it cleared up after a few weeks and wasn't very painful.
It came back 18m ago due to lifting heavy weights (again). I had bladder scan and testicular scan, urine showed no infection. PSA 0.3. Went away after a week or so. Again no meds.
Well it has come back with a vengeance, despite me not lifting heavy weights, following ejaculation a week ago. Ejaculation was painless but looked greenish in places. Pain came an hour later and hasn't gone. I'm now thinking its bacterial. Rectum pain is crippling. DRE was smooth but slightly enlarged. GP gave me some Tamsulosin which seems to help with peeing. Should get PSA result Thurs along with urine analysis. Went to A&E Friday but they didn't do blood test for infection as they didn't expect anything to show up as my vital signs were OK.
I'm worried about abscesses in case I actually do have an infection but I don't want to take cipro as it's FDA black boxed with horrendous side effects should you be unlucky enough to get them. Manchester NHS Trust only prescribe cipro.
I'm seeing a consultant 1st Oct to try to get ultrasound and semen analysis.
Sorry for the long first post. Apart from making me feel a bit better by writing this...is there an effective antibiotic for deep seated infection apart from those in the floxin family? And do you think green ish bits in ejaculate could indicate infection. I hadn't ejaculated in 3 weeks before then.
