Hi there!

It would normally take some time after completion of the antibiotic course for the inflammation to subside completely and to experience complete relief. Since the pain has reduced by 70-80% it should be considered a positive sign. I would suggest seeking a review with your treating urologist to make sure the infection is under control. If there are still signs of infection, the treatment may further be extended.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!

I am suffering from same problem. This comes every 2 years then when i undergo treatment, things will be fine. But now i fear because my flaccid is gets smaller and i am unable to get erection. Doctor has said to wear tight underwear and drink lots of water with medication.
I am having same problem as u and doctor has suggested the same thing. Have you recovered since then ?
