My 64 yr old husband is being treated for his 6th UTI in 9 months, now determined to be caused by an underlying prostate infection. And doctor further determined the eColi causing the current infection is of an antibiotic resistent strain that's in-sensitive to all oral antibiotics. How bad is this drug on the kidney and liver, as well as other organs? Thanks!!
The dr has to monitor those things during treatment, but to make sure everything is still clearing right. I would not be too concerned because that bacteria has got to be gotten rid of. Its not something he wants to keep hanging around. That can do more harm than any antibiotic.
