Worried about Prostate

Posted 30 Sep 2021 at 22:25

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

took 2 urine samples and no infection showed up, put me on antibiotics anyway which after a week dont seem to be helping

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.
