I have a reoccurring positive ecoli infection in the urine

Customer Question
Hello Doctor, I have a reoccurring...
Hello Doctor,
I have a reoccurring positive ecoli infection in the urine when tested via U A/C and S . I have had several rounds of cipro not effective - a round of macrobid and I just retested positive again 100.000 ecoli count in the urine .. iv been battling this since april 2016 after a trip to Mexico. My primary PCP has been treating this .. Today my MD ordered Ampicillin 500 mg one by mouth every 6 hours for 10 days. I am a nurse and have some awareness of meds so I was not sure if this is a good antibiotic for this infection and I am a little med phobic due to allergies to meds in my lifetime. per my lab results I am resistant to cipro. Please advise if there is a better antibiotic option since I want to cure this once and for all Thankyou for your time in advance. Sincerely, ***** *****

Sorry to hear about this

Can you please tell me what antibiotics were shown to be effective against E.coli in your recent urine C/S ?

It will be good if you can attach an image/picture of your C/S report

Do you have any known medical illness or any medicines which you are taking regularly ?

Regards

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
