Hello
Have you seen a urologist
If so what did he say about your prostate
Have you had an ultrasound?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

i saw a urologist several years ago and he performed a digital exam of prostrate, all fine. had ultrasound and flow test followed by procedure to clear any blockage, got little relief for a short time, it has been giving me trouble ever since. as i say that was several years ago. it was my GP who thought it may be an infection but as i say the lab results were indecisive and the follow up test was infection clear, but symptoms continue, just put off going back . some days it is ok then it flares up again.

It is prostate without a doubt with this type of chronicity.
I would suggest an ultrasound of the prostate and a return visit to the urologist.

If it turns out that it is not prostate, then you need a cystoscopy, a scope into the bladder to look at the urethra and bladder, and rule out stricture or bladder lesion.

I would not simply wait this out any longer.
