  A 68 year old diabetic man with BPH has a persistant fever, weakness and a WBC count of 21,000 after completion of a course of antibiotic for acute left epidydimytis. There appears to be some left scrotal fixation and persistant edema on exam now. What is the next best series of steps?

A) Epididymectomy

B) Repeat Cultures and give an additional course of antibiotic,

C) Admission, I/V Amp+Gent and scrotal Ultra sound

D) Diagnostic drainage of the hydrocele(tap), in the clinic or emergency department to rule out pyocele

E) Continue supportive care

  pain and fever has resolved except for the edema and scrotal fixation.
I think it takes a while for it to resolve.
so continue suppotive care.
