I had a urine culture done on thursday it came back negative
I had another one done on saturday at a different office it came nack positive. Could there be a change like that in only 2 days. My nig concern is i have a history of recurring c diff so i am leery about taking antibiotics they are giving me cipro. They do not know which strain of bacteria it is yet will have those results tuesday
Id there a antibiotic i can take that is less likely to give me cdiff the urgent care center didnt seem to care. Or anuthing i can do to prevent c diff. My symptoms are not bad it wasnt even the re ason i went to urvent care just a little pressure and occasionally a little burning on urinaruon

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

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.
