thanks Blake for your feedback.the ecoli is resistant to maximum antibiotics.its  sensisitive only to imipenem,meropenem,ertapenem ,amikacin,gentamicin,chlorophenicol,netilmycin,polymixin b.its resistant to clindamycin,all fluraquinilones and its resistant to rocephin too.and i have been checked for abscess.there is no abscess in my prostate.e coli is esbl strain and is resistant.i just dont know what to do.

Supplement called Uva ursi?

It's cheap. There isn't much research. I think it gets broken down in alkaline urine and acts as an antiseptic. I doubt anyone has tried it for the prostate (which is very alkaline with infection).

It is toxic to the liver and I believe the antiseptic compound may be carcinogenic. Lots of warnings not to take it more than a week. But maybe might help relieve any bladder pains temporarily? Good luck....

If you read about EDTA used in combination with antibiotics it may be Interesting to you..... Quite a bit of research into its synergistic effects. There are some interesting papers about it reversing specific forms of resistance (like effluent pumps that need specific ions to work correctly). Hope this line of thought provides some hope. Not sure if you'd get enough edta in the prostate for a long enough period, but maybe it helps...

Sorry man, I don't know. I think it can be a risk but I mainly did massage while taking antibiotics.

Why don't your doctors give you antibiotics? Yes your bacteria is resistant to many antibiotics but it's not resistant to everything.
