Having interstitial cystitis flare...

I had a total hip replacement 6 wks ago. UTI followed. Gone now, except the new urine test showed a lot of red blood cells. Sometimes this occurs when my IC flares. Urologist wants to do cystoscopy, but says I'll need to go early to have an antibiotic via an IV. I read that this type of procedure should wait till 3 months after surgery. Don't know what to do. Another question is should I be on an antibiotic to protect my new hip while I'm in this flare? I'm concerned that any kind of infection might migrate to the hip.
