UTI since mid Aug. 3rd round of ABX

Bactrim did nothing, seemed to aggravate in fact.

Went to Patient First got on Cipro -- noticed results but after three days ran out, back to square one.

Doctors retested, but to not avail. All negative.

They said it would go away on it's own. It didn't. Found a new doc - a nurse practitioner since the docs are too busy with real problem patients.

She said it's in my head but tested me anyways. Came back positive.

On Augmentin. Felt a little better until the runs set in. Now, I feel worse than ever.

Am I doomed?

Doctor thinks it's fibroids. Will be going in for a ultrasound of the parts...

Off ABX at least. That's a bonus.

Re: UTI since mid Aug. 3rd round of ABX

Just following up...fibroids have been confirmed. One very near bladder. Could this be the cause????

Exclamation Re: UTI since mid Aug. 3rd round of ABX

TURNS out that the fibroid was 6 centimeters so they sent me packing. The doctor was puzzled to see me, even asking me, didn't they tell you they were nothing to worry about when they did the ultrasound.

Not exactly. They said there were two. And that one was right on top of my bladder.

He said there was one and that it was not big enough to affect my bladder.

This is a total wash. Never going back there.

still sick so i will see what another doc says.
