His biopsy was done during a TURP which he got it done 1 month back, since then he has been suffering with lot of Urine infection and WBC + Bacteria in his urine test report.

We also got his Urine Culture test done 2 weeks back and doctor changed the medicine but he is not get relieved .. Earlier Puss cells were decreasing and bacteria was not there and now Puss Cells have increased and also Bacteria is positive.

Brief Answer:
might need another sensitive drug

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I have gone through all his reports carefully. His infection is sensitive to only two drugs and resistant to all other drugs. As the medicine given by your doctor seems not working for him, he might need another sensitive drug. Let this known to his treating doctor, so that he would change to other sensitive drug. However, repeat urine culture/sensitivity test again, so that we can know the number of organisms growing to assess the severity of infection.

His symptoms may also be due to underlying prostate cancer.
