I heard of an interesting advance in the placement of antibiotics in hard to
treat areas. They are now placing tiny plastic beads of antibiotics directly
into an infected site. I don't know if this has been tried on prostatitis.

In answer to your query about getting all the lab equipment to do your own -
I think you'll find the learning curve extremely steep. How are you going to
collect prostate "fluid"? The specimens we test are a urine voided after a
prostate massage.
