Re: Brainstem lesion with chronic vertigo

MS22,
I cannot give you any advice for the vertigo. But I do have a few questions for you. Did you have to start using I&O cath because you were getting UTI's? I have a brain stem lesion that is giving me swallowing issues and I have also had a constant UTI since May 16th. I think that I am not completely emptying my bladder on my own. How long have you had to use a catheter? Do you have to use an antibiotic to avoid infection from using catheters?
