Hi,
Welcome to XXXXXXX
If the fever is due to enlarged prostate, then the antibiotic should work in a few days - say 3 days.
If the fever is DUE TO OTHER causes/ not responding to cipro, the treatment needs to be changed or directed towards the cause.
The examining and treating physician would have taken this into consideration.
You are too young for enlarged prostate. Also fever with suspected urinary tract infection needs admission for observation. Pls discuss these issues with your doc.
Hope this helps. Kindly revert back for doubts if any.
Best regards

Hi,
Welcome back.
Your clinical symptoms need treatment only after clinical examination and so cannot be planned online.
I feel you need admission and evaluation as i had already wrote.
Best regards

My husband had the di vinci surgery 3 months ago due to prostate cancer. The great news is the cancer is gone and his PSA wonderful. But, he is having difficulty getting or maintaining an erection after tying down or sitting. We understand this is a symptom of having this surgery, however the doctor said he felt his erections would come back. He is currently taking testosterone and viagra. His nurse said that the problem is venous erection. His erections are weak and do not last long. What do you think and do you have any advice?

I have an enlarged prostate and with a PSA of 11.6. I had a biopsy a year ago (showed no cancer) and has a recent one this month (inconclusive) due to swollen prostate. The doctor said I have to wait for 6 months inorder for the swelling to subside. He gave antibiotic, Cifromax, but the prescription says that tendon problems could be the side effect, which I am having right now. I had been in this antibiotic since July 2013 on and off. I need to find out who is the best urologist here in Salt Lake and Layton area.
