I had a very bad klebsiella infection that last over 6 months that was mainly causeing a discharge from the penis that would burn my private area to the point of bleeding, After the infection was treated with 2 months of IV infusion, I was left with very bad pelvic area pain. That at first was thought to be a hernia or stones etc. Mri and cts were done over the next sevreral months, The last pelvid Mri did show that i had scar tissue that remained as a result of the infection, I was reading that scar tissue is very painful and it really is. My question is, Will scar tissue heal over time as months pass, Or is thier a surgical procedure that I can do to rectify this horrible pain that I am having ? Thanks

Brief Answer: Looking forwards to your update Detailed Answer: Hi XXXX, Thanks for writing in with an update. There are many areas in the pelvis where scar tissue formation can occur. Scar tissue around the the urinary bladder, ureters and prostate regions can be present. I wish that you update me with a copy of the report so that I get an exact idea of your present condition and explain it in details. Looking forward to your update. Regards, Dr.Vivek
