    Suggest treatment for bladder infection and prostatitus

Posted on Thu, 29 Jun 2017 in Urinary and Bladder Problems
Question: I am 65 and have had a bladder infection and prostatitus. After 4 weeks of antibiotics my PSA was checked and the results came back at 8.52. Two or so months prior my PSA was 4.3 at a health screening by a local hospital. I can't seem to get into the urologist for a month. What do you think and what should I do?
