    The short answer is yes, but it might take a few more weeks or months.  These links may help:

    The main article for the general public says this:

    "Most men diagnosed with chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS) tend to have an improvement in their symptoms over the following six months. In one study, about a third of men had no further symptoms one year later. In another large study, one third of men showed moderate to marked improvement over two years."

    David, I had a severe UTI, which brought on prostatitus. My PSA spiked from 2.4 to 13. Now a year on, my PSA is back to 4.9, but I still have some pain. It can take a few years some time to recover.
