Welcome to icliniq.com.
Your presentation and investigations (attachment removed to protect patient identity) showed a prostate enlargement with median lobe enlargement, which makes it difficult for him to empty his urine completely, causing urinary infection. Therefore he was treated with multiple courses of antibiotics leading to yeast (fungal) infection. He is also taking Tamsulosin which is an alpha-blocker. His residual volume is about 100 ml, and PSA (prostate-specific antigen) is 2.8.
The management can be by combination treatment of Tamsulosin and Dutasteride 0.5 mg once daily which is indicated for the prostate of more than 30 gm and PSA more than 1.4. It can give improvement over three to six months, but it is a bit costly treatment. Suppose the patient cannot afford it or is really annoyed with symptoms. In that case, going for a surgical option is better to resolve the issue done by endoscopic operation of one hour, and the results will be dramatic.
You can deal with fungal infection by tablet Fluconazole 150 mg once daily for two weeks. Start combination treatment as mentioned above. Maintain proper hydration and avoid constipation. If you want immediate relief, then surgery is preferred.
Please follow up after three months with uroflow, bladder scan, urine analysis, and culture.
I hope this helps.
Urine analysis and culture. Uroflow and post-void bladder scan.
