Infection after Prostate Biopsy

About a month ago I had a prostate biopsy. two days after I began to experience increased pain when urinating and a small amount of blood. The Dr. felt I had contracted an infection from the procedure and prescribed 5 days worth of levaquin and Keflex. I felt better at the conclusion of the 5 days but 4 or 5 days later my left testicle became very tender and I could hardley walk. the dr was very confident that the infection had not fully been erradicated and prescribed 10 days of the same medicines. Again a few days went by and the pain in my left testicle returned as well as pain in my groin and I am again taking antibiotics. is this common after prostate biopsy? Also I can feel a knot at the tip of the testicle that was not there prior to the procedure and is tender. Should i insist the Dr look for something other than an infection?
