Question for those who have had PAE or are very knowledgable about it. PAE works by embedding microspheres in arteries/blood vessels that supply blood to the prostate. The microspheres significantly reduce the amount of blood reaching the prostate and this causes prostate cells to die and the prostate to shrink.
It is well known that antibiotics have a difficult time reaching the prostate. So if a man has PAE and then has subsequent prostatitis caused by bacteria, won't the antibiotics have an even more difficult time reaching the prostate? Could the PAE make it almost impossible to cure prostatitis caused by bacteria using oral antibiotics? Would a man in this situation require direct injections of antibiotics into the prostate? Is that even an option?
