  • I have incontinence and am in pull ups all day everyday I'm struggling a lot to accept this so I joined this site to make friends with people who will understand what I'm experiencing.
  • Right after Labor Day, I got a pretty bad UTI. It started out slow, so it was about a week before I went to a doctor because I wasn't sure if it really was a UTI. They gave me Cipro but it wasn't helping after a full course. Went to another doctor who sent it out for a culture and it turned out I needed ampicillin to get rid of it.

    UTI

    Currently dealing with UTI which I have only had once before.. Urinalysis showed not caused by e-coli [so gallons of cranberry did not help!] - but by enterococcus which not responsive to cranberry apparently. So now on 7 day course of amoxicillin. Bit of a shock to the system, so hope that clears it up quick!
