Re: Will I be ok for my Endoscopy????

The best thing you can do if you have a UTI is to drink cranberry juice, it has bacteria which helps to get rid of UTI's, also drink plenty of water to flush it out of your system.


I'm sure you'll be fine for your endoscopy.

Re: Will I be ok for my Endoscopy????

Hi Mandy

a person can get recurrent UTI's for a number of reasons. In your case it may just be that due to you being unwell at the moment all your natural ph levels are out of whack and your hormones are up the wall so this may have contributed to the amount of bad bacteria to create a uti.

I dont have problems with uti's instead im waking endless times during the night with a full bladder!!!

Try your best not to worry, as worrying can make many symptoms appear and make things worse for a person, try and keep yourself busy if you can, especially your mind then it wont play tricks on you.

Re: Will I be ok for my Endoscopy????

Hi Mandy

I know what you are going through with the UTI. I have a condition called Cistitis (Spelling) and it is terrible. I have had it since I was 26 I am now 41 it gives me a sensation that I have an infection because of the pain and pressure but when they test me it shows nothing. I take a pill called peridium that the doc perscribed and the minute I start feeling the pain I take it and it is a miracle pill. It turns your urine a bright orange but who cares its worth it.

Have you taken anything for the fever. Maybe a Tylenol or something might help.

Marsha

Re: Will I be ok for my Endoscopy????

I hope it goes okay for you Maz. I had an Endoscopy done about 3 weeks ago and I was sedated for it (even then it was quite an uncomfortable experience) and my results came back clear but I'm still having ongoing issues which are being investigated by a different specialist.

It's very hard when you're sick and don't know what's going wrong. Hang in there though, that's all you can do.

Best wishes

Re: Will I be ok for my Endoscopy????

Hi Mandy

I am glad your endo went ok please keep us posted on the results.

My only health issues at this point is GERD. I sometimes have diffiuclty swallowing which comes and goes depending on what is going on in my life at the time. I take perscription prilosec which has been a wonder drug for me. I have not been following docs orders by taking it every day because I don't like to take so many drugs. I just found out I am in the early stages of menopause and am on estrogen (I am only 41) and early meno does not run in my family. I think its stress related being that my 15 year old was killed in a car accident last year.

Well take care and don't forget to keep us posted.

Thanks for your info Mandy

I know this is not a board to be talking about female issues but its interesting what Stress can do to your body. It is probably what has caused all my problems.
