Good Morning:

I wrote before regarding my husband who had a kidney removed in Febraury.  He now has a possible prostrate infection.  I say possible because that

was the doctors diagnosis.  We went in yesterday thinking a uti from foley catheher.  Anyway doctor put him on a strong antibiotic which would take care

of either problem.  Does this sound familiar to anyone.  He has 100.4 temp, pain when urinating, nauseau and just feeling like crap!  Than ks for any

insight.

nannieto6,

 

I have been on this board for 5 years and have not seen these two connected. But what do I know, I am an attorney not a doctor.

According to the internet, this seems reasonable. I know my husband has some prostate issues (very temporary) as a result of the foley catheter (not infection).

 Catheters cause infecdtions and one in the prostate would not be unheard of. If you just google prostate infections, there is a lot of info on them. 

 

How's he doing? If the antibiotic doesn't work, they should be able to do some culturing or imaging testing to gain further info. 

 

I'm not a doctor, but did read some articles online.

Max57,

 

Welcome to our club,

 

Please start a new post with your question rather than going off topic on an existing post.
