Customer Question
Hi ive recently had...

Hi ive recently had uti (2 weeks ago) and was prescribed nitrofurantoin 50mg 4 times a day, they seemed to clear it up but a week after stopping them I now have a sore tingling sensation at the end of urination at the sight of the opening where you urinate from, this is worse in the morning but eases off as day goes on

Doctor's Assistant: OK. To minimize me, please click the down arrow at the top right corner of this box.

Cant see any arrow sorry

Doctor's Assistant: The Urologist will need to help you with this. Please give me a bit more information, so the Urologist can help you best.

What do you need to know

Doctor's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Urologist should know?

Did your doctor actually do a urine culture to identify the bacteria to see if it was sensitive to nitrofurantoin?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
no she just dipped a stick in and said there was some infection, the reason I had nitrofurantoin is that I cant take Trimethoprim
Urologist: Dr. Y., Urologist replied 2 years ago

OK. The next step is for you to go back to your doctor to have a formal urine culture done. It sounds to me like you may have a residual infection and you need a urine culture to identify the bacteria. The lab report will then print out which antibiotics are appropriate for this infection. Your doctor can then pick one that you are not allergic to. Hope this helps and let me know if you have questions.

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.
