I have read several posts about this subject and thank the community for all their wonderful information and support of one another. I would like to share my horrible experience with others to get help and also let other sufferers know they are not alone.
I went to Brazil for a business trip and my clients brought me to a strip club and I received unprotected oral sex from a girl there on December 11, 2017. I didn't have any symptoms until December 20, when I returned to Los Angeles. On that day I started feeling a little burning from my urethra after peeing. I was very concerned and went to urgent care. I told the doctor what I did and how my urethra felt, and he gave me one shot of Ceftriaxone and 1000mg of Azithromyacin. They also gave me a full panel test of HIV, HSV-2, Syphillis, Chlamydia, and Gonorrhea. (All these came back negative 2 days later). The next day I felt better and the burning urethra pain was only very little. Then on December 22, my symptoms increased and I had severe burning when I went pee. I went back to urgent care and the doctor prescribed me Doxycycline 2x for 10 days. The symptoms got better the first half of the next day, but then returned stronger on December 23.
The burning pain was incredible. I would not wish this pain on anyone. On average it takes me 20 minutes to pee because I can only let out small drops or a very small stream. If I release a large stream the burning is unbearable. I am always spent after peeing, breathing heavily, and completely sweaty from the ordeal.
On December 24, I went to urgent care again because the pain was unbearable. The doctor gave me an anti-fungal (Diflucan), Pyridine, and another shot of Ceftriaxone. The next day (Christmas), the burning pain was better and I thought I was on the road to recovery. But then on December 26, my symptoms returned and the burning pain was very severe. I went to urgent care again and the doctor prescribed me Flagyl for Trich. The doctor also told me that my urine culture came back negative for Gonorrhea and Chlamydia. I spoke with the doctor and requested another urine culture for Mycoplasma Genitalium, Ureaplasma, and Trich. (I am still waiting for those cultures because of the holidays). That night I started feeling better. The burning pain was less and my urine color was much lighter. I thought I was on the road to recovery. Then on December 27, my symptoms came back and the pain was unbearable. I became really depressed and hopeless. I regretted what I did overseas. My urgent care doctor then referred me to a urologist.
I saw the urologist today (December 28) and he diagnosed me with prostatitis. Along with the burning urination, I started to develop severe swollen testes. I could not sit in a chair and driving to see the urologist was very painful. I also gave a urine sample for culture, which the doctor was going to test. The urologist prescribed me Levaquin for 30 days and gave me a Toradol shot as an anti-inflammatory for my inflamed urethra.
Is there anything else I should test for? Should I request the culture to be longer? Is there anything I've missed?
I will continue to post and share my treatment to share with everyone here. For everyone out there reading, I would like to say that you are not alone and that you have my support along with everyone in this community. Thank you for spending time to read my post.
