Doctor
Actually, patients who have had acute prostatitis are likely to have the infection come back, and to develop chronic prostatitis.It is common for the infection to return (prostatitis caused by E.coli usually follows an urinary tract infection with E.coli, and patients with recurrent UTI's, have greater chances for recurrent cases of prostatitis), some health care providers recommend even longer courses of medications, 6 to 8 weeks, to get rid of the infection.
