enterococcus kidney infection?
I was in the hospital a little over a week in December. They gave me a catheter, which gave me an enterococcus (I'm not sure which kind-all I know from the urinalysis is that it's Vancomycin-susceptible) UTI. I tried Fosfomycin, a one-dose antibiotic, but it doesn't seem to have gotten rid of it. I still have cloudy urine with a slight odor to it.
In the last few days I've also developed pain in my sides and lower back. But I have no fever, nausea or other symptoms. My doctor gave me Cipro, in case it's a kidney infection. I haven't started taking it yet. On the urinalysis, Cipro was mentioned as one of the drugs this bacteria is susceptible to. The others are Macrobid and Levaquin. Which one is the best?
Does anyone know about enterococcus?
