well pcran, i'm a little confused. did the doctors find anything wrong with your baldder at all? as for your epididymitis you may be able to have a semen culture done. this will test the secreations in your semen for the presence of any bacteria that could be causing the infection. once the causative organism is discovered sensitivity tests can be done to determine which antibiotics work the best against that particular strain of bacteria. it could be that the bacteria that is causing your infection is partially succeptable to the cipro but it has some resistance therefore it didnt totally cure your infection and now its back. i would try to figure out what is causing it and test the sensitivity of the organism.
does this make sense? keep me updated on what you find out and if you have any other questions or concerns just ask.

well after i went to see him again he has now put me on a months course of Erythromycin 250mg its me third day on them today feels a bit better but i dont want to hold my breath as this has been an intermiittent problem on and off. can u reply back to my post again gp said months course should take away the infection rather than the normal dose of antibiotics.
