Worried about Prostate

User

Its started about 7 days ago, going to pee every hr and sore lower back(pelvic area) back pain continued and peeing regular calmed down for a few days, then flaired up agai. Went to doctors and was given antibiotics after them checking a urine sample, my testicles and a rectum examination. i was given same antibiotics as 2017 when i had prostatitis.

 

4 days into antibiotics i now have hip pain, pelvis pain and still lower back pain, also still peeing every hr.

 

Very worried its something more serious

You don't say if a PSA test was done and if so what was the result. If your situation does not improve in next few days I would arrange to see GP again or if pain very severe go to A&E. There could be a number of things giving rise to your situation.

Having to pee every hour was how I started this journey. I was retaining about a litre of pee in my bladder even after peeing. I think you need a catheter in fairly urgently I would go to A and E they can do a bladder scan to see how much you are retaining, don't be fobbed off one of the doctors said to me "if you can pee a bit every hour you will be OK" that is not true if you are retaining a litre of pee.

I have know idea about the pelvic pain, I did not have that.

Doctor did a prostate check (finger up bum) said couldnt feel anything, felt the urgent need to pee as soon as doctor touched it, but no pain

Sounds like a urinary tract infection - pain in the back and hips can be awful with a kidney infection

No expert, but have read that UTIs can be absolute beasts to detect. Microscopic bacteria are apparently very clever at 'hiding' in the gut etc/

You might want to join The FOPS next support group meeting on Zoom on Wed 13 Oct (details at the end of my profile). We have 3 urologists who can discuss your case, and one is a specialist in prostatitis.
