Suggest treatment for yellow colored urine and semen

Without seeing me, a Dr. friend gave me a presciption to teracyline...500 milgrams 3 times a day, when I told him my urine was consistenly yellow-orange for 5 days even after drinking alot of water. I have been taking it for 6 days now and there is not much difference. If I drink alot of water it clear up quite well, but when I stop, the cloer comes back. I have a solid mass on the left testicle, that is normal I was told since I did have a vasectomy, but now it seems larger. Also my seman has the same yellow-orange tint to it and there seems to be lower volume. There is no blood or pain, I actually feel good. I have 4 days left with the meds but I was told there should be a big improvment by now. I am not sure what to do at this point. I am 46 by the way. Thank you

* The condition seems to be related to epididymitis with prostatic inflammation most likely via bacterial infection as E.Coli or else.

* As tetracycline is not giving satisfactory results, I would recommend to discuss the need of culture report of prostate massage fluid or else for the best possible evaluation to guide the therapy accordingly.

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

Take care
