... antibiotics. The 2nd time I had another infection in one month's time. I always have the urine cultured to make sure I am on the appropriate antibiotic. I am allergic to Penicilin, all dirivitives, and Macrobid. I came down with another infection today and am feeling quite discouraged. I fear becoming antibiotic resistant. Cystoscopies and kidney ultrasounds are normal. I am not sexually active. My hygiene is compulsively impeccable. I swill water. I take 1,000 mg of cranberry concentrate 2x a day. I use vaginal premarin 2x a week. I wear a pessary that I am meticulous about in terms of cleanliness using only antibacterial soap. Help. Anyone have any suggestions for me. I fear that even my urologist will give up on me. I am seeking suggestions and people who can relate to my predicament. Oh yes, I had achilles tendon surgery and my orthopedic doctor does not want me taking Cipro or Levoquin. Any ideas for me? :o(
I suffered from uti's for many years and tried everything out there, am resistant to most antibiotics now and then I discovered that taking 6000 - 8000 mg if vitamin C with rosehips daily has cleaned out my urinary tract within a few days to the point of having had a white discharge that is now gone and everything feels healthy again the way it use to before I kept getting all these uti's. I heard years ago that drinking lemon juice daily would do this but for me that wasn't enough and the vit. c in large doses is doing it. I was praying for a natural solution and sofar have not had another uti. I have been on a 4000 mg a day maintenance dose after the intial 1 week high dose. It can cause diarrhia but one can take something for that untill you get to a lower dose.
