Hello and thank you so much for all your help. So here is my issue, unfortunately I was mistreated with antibiotics because drs thought I had an STI but it turned out to be E. Coli infection. My urine was never cultured after probably 2 months after my symptoms started. I had urine, semen and urethral culture. Urine and semen came back clear but urethral culture positive for E. coli >100,000. so I was put on cipro for 2 weeks. Symptoms still there on and off. I went to see my dr again and he said that my issues were in my head and he just left. So I went to my local STD clinic because they do cultures too and my culture urine culture with them came back positive for Enterococcus faecalis 10,000 or less but since I still have symptoms. Inwas told to be treated and it was not a "contamination". So now I decided to do another urine test and sure enough my level 1 came back positive for E. choli and Enterococcus faecalis. My symptoms are on and off, I experience burning while or after urination, urethral itching and urethral stinging. These symptoms are not always there but they do bother me. How long does it take for the prostate to get infected? I'm waiting for my level 2 results so I can start treatment? Any recommendations for Enterococcus faecalis treatment since this bacteria is harder to kill? Thank you so much for all your help, this is really bad and I feel like I'm losing it and this involves my family, work, business..etc. thank you.
