User avatar Hi dtruss,
During your initial visit to the ER, were you prescribed an antibiotic? Did you receive a referral to a Urologist because persistent pain may indicate a condition aside from a UTI, i.e. residual inflammation of one of the other male structures. Best wishes.
Sincerely,
Theresa Jones, RN
