I've had 4 UTIs this year. Three of the times there was blood. This last time, the nurse practioner I go to (no doctors available!) gave me an RX to have on hand if it came back (which it did) and I'm back on the antibiotic macrobid again. In the past I was given sulfa and it seemed that was not doing the job.
I do not suffer from incontinence or inability to urinate. I had episodes of extreme urgency in the past, but was told to try to "hold it in" as long as I can by a urologist. I've been doing this for years now and had no UTIs.
This current pattern began after I became estrogen intolerant and could no longer replace hormones. I had a complete hysterectomy in 2002 and have suffered greatly since this surgery and now, being intolerant to estrogen just makes it worse. I read that if you aren't getting enough estrogen it can lead to UTIs.
Does anyone know the reality of this? Can anyone help at all or advise me as what to do?
Thanks for any help at all and I hope everyone here on the MS group is doing the best that they can. It sure is getting difficult as I age. I am now over 60 and if this is what the future is going to be like, I'm really sick of it already. :(
