    Prostatitis has nothing to do with age. It is a chronic infection of the prostate that can nearly always be treated, but often requires 6-8 weeks of antibiotics to get rid of it.

    What was only 500 cc.??? Your capacity? Was this during urodynamics? What was your maximum pressure (PdetMax)?? When did you have this study done?

    A positive culture, without other symptoms, is not a UTI and generally should not be treated. This is simply considered colonization.

    Long term "preventive" use of antibiotics like levaquin almost invariably lead to colonization with highly resistant stains of bacteria, and should be avoided for people with SCI.

    Suggest you download and provide a copy of these documents for your physician. For the second one, although it says it is outdated, it is still consistent with best practices for treatment of UTI in SCI:

    You may also want to look for a different urologist...one who is expert in neurologic urology.

    Without doing a C&S, he is treating you blind. Call the office and ask to speak to the doctor. Ask about stopping the Bactrium for 3 days and then getting this test done as should be done prior to taking any antibiotic. Otherwise you are treating the unknown with the unknown.
