Hi
Thanks for your query at HCM.

Yes I suggest you to continue with your antibiotics and complete the full course. Doctor can also prescribe medications to relax the prostate muscles called alpha-adrenergic blockers and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) like ibuprofen to reduce swelling.
You can also take stool softeners to prevent constipation. Treatment must not be interrupted. You will be fine soon.
