Question: Have prostitis...prior to treatement had blood work done...would like to know how the CBC results look....some of the percentages are in the high or low range of normal...but the Absolute numbers look normal? Prior to blood test I had taken Amoxicillian for 7 days for a throat infection....Bactrim for 7 days and 4 Azithromican pills and a shot because Dr wanted to check for STD...all those tests came back clear.....Upon DRE, prostate was normal and my PSA was .8.....currently on Bactrim for 15 days...but started this after blood work.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for query .Based on the facts that you have posted you have been diagnosed to have Prostatitis and treated with antibiotics for 3 weeks .

I shall be happy if you can post me more details to help me in making precise comments
1) What are your symptoms ?
2) Do you have painful ejaculation or urination
3) Do you have pain in lower abdomen and perineal region ?
4) Have you consulted Urologist ?
The diagnosis of Prostatitis is usually established on clinical finding like painful DRE coupled with positive evidence of bacterial infection confirmed by presence of bacteria on urine and semen culture .

Since your urologist has diagnosed it as a Prostatitis continue taking Bactrim twice daily for 2-3 weeks .

Hope I have answered your query ,please feel free to ask if you have more questions,I shall be happy to help you
Thanks and Regards.

Hi, I have been having a single tender node on my nech--under my chin. It only hurts when I press on it. When I press on it I feel pain that radiates to my right cheek and right ear. It has improved since yesterday. I have no other symptoms. I went to my doctor today and she sent me for bllod work (CBC, and test for Mono) I always tend to think of the worst and can't help thinking of the possibility of cancer--my worst fear!!! She told me she did not think it was a throat infection because I feel no pain when I eat and have no cough or cold symptoms. What is your opinion?

Hello, I had a throat infection. I took augmentin 625 after consulting a doctor. After completion of the dose (5 days, 10 tab), I am having loose motion (it is not pure-watery like in dirrohea, semi-liquid), everyday 4-5 times I have to go to loo (call of nature is a bit emergency in nature ). I took 1 norfloxacin and tinidazole tab and it stopped for 1 day. It started again. Is it because good bacteria got killed ? Please advise what to take for treatment...thanks
