Please look into fosfomycin for treatment of resistant organisms. A simple web search for fosfomycin and prostatitis should bring up the studies. I'm early on in this process, but after a month on fosfo, I'm doing well. Only two weeks since my last dose but so far - so good for my beta lactam resist...

It's hard to believe, but it seems many urologist's are reluctant to perform prostate massage required for EPS. Perhaps even more astonishing, is the reluctance to culture ejaculate. Is the blush factor ordering a semen culture really what's going on? Unbelievable! Semen is comprised of 30% proatati...

Welcome to America da0092! Hope you enjoy your stay! The bacterial/non-bacterial issue is an enigma, but when symptoms follow a bout of urethritis, or UTI, bacteria would seem a likely suspect. I personally feel the bacterial angle might be more common in young, sexually active males, and chemical p...

Hi da0092, & I'm so glad you've posted again which bumped your thread onto page 1. I have much the same history you do regarding urethritis/UTI, followed by epididymitis with relapsing. I also have few prostate symptoms at this point, but have had 3 bouts of epididymitis which switched sides the...

I didn't mean to imply the statistics were ominous for catastrophic injury from my hypothetical numbers... Quite the contrary, the odds seem quite good. It appears these horror stories actually only happen to a hand full of "other people". Important to consider though, when looking at real...

My semen culture was a common blood agar plate. The haemophilus barely grew on this medium on the third day and there wasn't enough growth to test for sensitivities. Haemophilus is supposed to grow best on a "chocolate agar" with the atmosphere enriched with additional CO2. If I relapse ag...

I've been spooked by the quinolone horror stories too. There are a lot of them out there, and they are quite compelling. For some perspective... It looks like there are over 26 million quinolone scrips written in the US alone each year. http://prostatitis.org/redirect.php?link=https://www.drugwatch....

The muscular issue / non-bacterial angle is certainly something to consider before you head for the pills, but symptoms that last for months after your little adventures should have healed by now if it was a simple strain or overuse. Doctors, particularly urologists almost always go straight to the ...

Urine cultures are notorious for false negatives... Mine came back clean, but a semen culture showed haemophilus. I believe I got this through oral from my sweetheart who takes care of her toddler granddaughter, who is often sick with bugs she brings back from daycare. Cultures should also be taken ...

I've been diagnosed with CBP from a Board Certified Urologist, due to my recurring epididymitis. We were initially entertaining the possibility my epididymits may have been toxic/chemical (uric acid), as I don't have a lot of active prostatitis symptoms, but after two bouts in my right testicle, it ...

My doc didn't want to prescribe the fosfo at the aggressive dosing schedule in the Greek study either. The only thing that popped up on his computer when he entered the drug was for single dosing every 72 hours, and he said he could get in trouble if he varied from his databases guidelines. I'm luck...

Disturbing as the quinolone side effects are, the only alternative my doc is offering (other than the fosfomycin we're trying) is Sulfa/Bactrim, which has its own laundry list of issues in individuals who become sensitized to them due to the high doses and extended duration of therapy. The DS in Bac...

The hundreds of accounts of serious side effects from quinolones are horrifying to read. Millions of doses per year appear to help many, but the few who have serious problems are compelling. Side effects don't always happen to "other people". Dr Beatrice Golomb MD/PhD, associate professor ...

At my age I am drinking light beer, but yea, I'm afraid I do go through half a dozen/day. Wouldn't try this on Bactrim, but I was wondering if anyone has ever had a drink or two on this without encountering problems.

Curious Inflamed... What kind of trouble did you have with Bactrim?

I'm finishing up my fosfomycin therapy (6 weeks) and preparing to head into the no-mans land of waiting to see if I'll relapse. My uro says Bactrim is the next thing to try if my symptoms come back but I've read this really is a zero alcohol med, & I'm rather fond of the frothy nectar. I can cer...

Hi all, I've recently been diagnosed with chronic bacterial prostatitis... Semen culture positive for Haemophilous Influenzae, Beta-Lactamase positive; a (typically) oral pathogen. This initially presented as acute epididymitis, but apparently has made its way into my prostate. I've had two bouts of...
