I am an 89 year old woman.
I have had many re-occuring utis
My second last one was in Dec.
Took 1000mg vitamin c for 4 months and okay
Recently had another ecoli uti.
It was quickly remedied within 1 day of taking macrobid
I took it for 10 days at 200mg daily.
My son confirmed the urinalysis
to be negative on day 10
4 days later I had signs of another bladder
I have taken mannose this week and had minimum symptoms - only 2 incontinence episodes within 4 days.
My wbcs were high at 500 and had had nitrites, rbcs and protein.
We saw a urologist a few weeks ago and he didnt care much as I had been uti free for a few months and never any
wbcs in the urine
so no real infection just vaginal contaminates for ecoli
I am 30lbs overweight have diverticulosis.
How can I get a relapse so quickly.
I wont qualify to get a catscan or cystogram
I am so frustrated and have chronic spinal arthritis which has flared up too.
My son reports that my wbcs were okay in the blood though.
Help with some good advice
