Have Urology Questions? Ask a Urologist Online.
Hi there,Thanks for your question. If I don't respond immediately, it is because I am either in the OR or traveling. I will get back to you ASAP.
If you continue to have recurrent infections, you should be referred to a urologist for an evaluation with cystoscopy and a CT scan to rule out kidney stones or other bladder abnormalities as the cause of the recurrent infections. The urgency and abdominal pain you have sounds like you are having bladder spasms related to the inflammation of the bladder from the recent infection. Your doctor should be able to prescribe you oxybutynin or Toviaz to help stop these spasms while the bladder heals over the next 1-2 weeks. Hope this helps.
My family practitioner did mention seeing a urologist if these antibiotics didn't clear the most recent infection. Would the hysterecomy I had in Jan be a contributing factor to these infections?
