Customer Question
reoccurring. Can't get into Dr...
My mother has had a UTI recently and I am afraid it is reoccurring. Can't get into Dr. today and she is burning. She is 85 and it is getting really tough taking care of her at home but I do want her comfortable. I didn't think they completely treated her problem last time with 500 keflex twice a day for a week. I thought we should have treated longer. I am searching for new geriatric Dr. In the area. I hope you can help in the interim.

Yes, you are right the possibility of recurrence is there. I would recommend for syrup disodium hydrogen citrate which is available OTC and lots of cranberry and raspberry juice. If the infection is mild it might clear up with this syrup alone and it wold relieve burning as well. Give her lots of fluids and water meanwhile to flush her system and to avoid recurrence.

Would you please, in addition to your other suggestions, allow another week of antibiotics. I know I will not get into a new doctor for weeks.
Urologist: Dr Uzair, Doctor replied 5 months ago

Thanks for the reply.

She can take antibiotics for another week but unfortunately we can not prescribe it here and you need a prescription for this. If you already have in hand for 7 days you can go ahead.

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.
