General Surgeon 's  Response
Hello,

* As per my surgical experience, there are always issues with trimethoprim in cases where there is sensitivity with the sulfa group.
* As per the culture report of the urine, it is recommended for a better alternative as doxycycline or macrolides as per the choice of the physician with best efficacious results in chronic prostatitis condition.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Bhagyesh V. Patel, General Surgeon

Hi! The urologist diagnosis a prostatitis at me. At research of my sperm he have found out Serratia liquefaciens. Treatment by antibiotics is recommended to me. Whether you consider it necessary? As far as I know Serratia liquefaciens are conditionally pathogenic microorganisms. Sorry for my English. Yours faithfully, Georgiy, Russia.
