    Dr. Towfigh,

    I went to a urologist a couple of months ago. He thinks it’s prostatitis related and gave me another 10-day round of Cipro. My symptoms once again went away on the Cipro, but then came back a few days after finishing the cipro, just like before. My only trigger has remained ejaculation, but the pain has really gotten better the past couple of weeks. The duration and intensity of pain has slowly decreased after each ejaculation. However, I sneezed yesterday while sitting down (something I normally try to avoid), and since then the pain has come back. If this is small hernia recurrence, I suppose there is no point in waiting for it to get better before seeing a hernia surgeon? I think I already know the answer but figured I’d ask you anyway.
