Comment from: Mahoney, 65-74 Male (Patient) Published: February 15

Three weeks ago I had a biopsy on my prostate gland - prior to which I had no symptoms and had only had a PSA blood test because of my age. Two days after the biopsy I developed a severe urinary infection. To date I have had three types of antibiotics and although there is now no pain - I have to urinate every 10 to 15 minutes and cannot get any sleep which in turn is leaving me exhausted.

With my prostate infection, I had a very small stream of urine. It also seemed like I had to urinate when I did not, especially at night. I had a low quantity of semen at ejaculation with some pain. I had a very painful prostate exam. I'm taking Cipro.

With my prostate infection, I had lower back pain with fever that became worse at night. I also had pain through lower abdomen as well. This infection is very hard to treat and even harder to explain to concerned family members.

I had a urinary tract infection about eight weeks ago which cleared up with antibiotics but I continued to feel extremely fatigued. Further tests concluded that there is prostrate infection. I am on Cipro for 30 days.

With my prostate infection, I had a burning sensation while urinating. Antibiotic medications worked for a while, but my symptoms came right back.

I got checked out after I discovered blood in my semen. Sure enough, it was prostate cancer.

Comment from: John, Male (Patient) Published: April 12

I had a burning sensation while passing urine. Also while pooping, there is completion feeling. Feels like again I have to poop, but no stool or a tiny piece of stool goes. Fever developed at night.
