Hi. I was recently diagnosed with a bone infection to my pubic bone following prostate surgery (which I had 3 months ago). They also found a bladder infection and I already knew the surgery gave me prostatitis. At this stage they are doing more investigations so I've had a blood test and X-ray (had previously had an MRI which showed up the infections. They want to put a camera up my urethra to look at the bladder infection - which at the time I met the consultant seemed the worst part of the whole deal. I've since visited Dr Google and I'm not greatly encouraged by what I think I've found out but I wanted to find out some more from the experts (hence this posting). Is it likely I can still be treated with antibiotics? My only symptoms are local pain in the bone and mild nausea. Over the 3 months I have had periods of extreme fever and shaking etc but these episodes were always treated as uti and I completed 5 week long courses of different antibiotics. Any suggestions about what's likely to be ahead for me would be much appreciated
