(Lebanon, Oregon, USA)
I have an ecoli infection in my prostate. Antibiotics appear to work but then it comes back. the doctor says the infection can get deep into the prostate and be difficult for the antibiotic to reach. Tests show that cipro should work, but I'm on my 3rd go around with cipro, and it comes back after a few days of getting off the antibiotic.
I was wondering if the prostate massage might help the cipro reach deeper?
Only your urologist can answer this question.
But to really understand how difficult it can be for oral antibiotics to work, you can read more about that problem on this site, and learn why they inject directly into the prostate antibiotics to solve the problem once and for all:
