Prostatitis and Masturbation

I just learned that I've got acute protatitis and have been fairly miserable for the past week. I'm a 50 year old man and have never had any problems with this before. The doctor put me on Cipro which seems to be working but very slowly. In revealing my condition to a (female) relative, who is usually very blunt, she told me to either "get a girlfriend" (I've been divorced for ten years) or masturbate in order to clear things out on a regular basis.

Is that true? If one does not have sex on a regular basis (which, obviously, I don't have), should one masturbate in order to relieve protatitis and help prevent future problems?

Thanks.
