I was recently diagnosed with a really sever prostate infection that I've been showing symptoms of for well over a year now. My pcp game me a prostate exam and sent me to a specialist because my prostate was enlarged.
The specialist then determined that what I had was a prostate infection from my description of symptoms. After the diagnosis, she told me she was going to preform a medical procedure that is no longer performed in the medical field called "milking the prostate". She told me that this needed to be done due to length I've had the infection, and so that she could loosen up the infection to allow the 2x daily for 60 days antibiotic treatment could get through the outer infection and really do their job.
She then "milked my prostate" which was really awkward and painful. Then afterwards I sat down and became extremely lightheaded and began sweating profusely as well as shivering uncontrollably. I all of the sudden became extremely nauseaus and started dry heaving a lot, and everything was visually getting really hard to focus, and things were getting really dark kind of like tunnel vision.
This lasted for about 15 minutes with the specialist not knowing what was going on, so she left to check the internet to try and figure out what was happening. When she came back she told me that I was having "Toxic shock" or something like that. When she smashed down on my prostate, a ton of infection actually came out and was released into my bloodstream, which literally made me feel like I was going to die! Lol. This lasted for about 15 minutes until I started feeling normal, except that my liver hurt really bad, or at least there was pain in that area, I'm not sure that it was actually my liver, it just made sense to me but she just said it was my stomach hurting.
She said she'd never seen that reaction before, and that the amount of infection that was building up in my prostate over the passed 14+ months must have really been a lot for that to happen.
This was about a week and a half ago, and I've been taking my antibiotics religiously to try and kill all that nasty stuff that's hurting me. Also, I'm 24 so this is too early in my book to be having prostate problems
I was just wondering about a side affect of the antibiotics. I tried google for an answer, but I think the questions to specific for google to really help.
About a week after starting the antibiotics, I noticed a rather large um, pimple or zit (gross I know, sorry) it was right in between my um penis and my rectum.. So I popped it and forgot about it. Then about 4 days later (today) I checked on it again figuring it would be gone, but instead of being gone, it was WAYY bigger. Like the biggest pimple I've ever seen. I then popped it again, but a bunch of white bloody infection/puss oozed out and it was a pretty significant amount. Then it all stopped but felt like there was still stuff in there, so I have it one last real good squeeze, and a bunch of harder white stuff literally shot out, then just clear red liquid. I think it might be a cyst forming or something So I'm just wondering since it's right in the area where my prostate would be I think, could it be that it's the infection from my prostate trying to work its way out of my body? The Dr didn't say anything about that, and I haven't been able to find anything online about it.
So yeah I was just wonderabout my if that could be what's happening here?
And also, I was wondering if all that infection that was released into my bloodstream after the procedure was dangerous at all? Could that have seriously injured me? Because I felt like I was literally going to die lol
Thanks ahead of time!
