I’ve been troubled with infections and urgency for a while now and am due to have botox in the next couple of months. I also self catheterise twice a day
I’ve been a little paranoid about infections since I had a really bad one which resulted in me being in hospital for a week. I ended up buying sone of the strips you test urine with from Amazon. This meant that if it was high in nitrites/leukocytes I could put a sample in for testing and get the necessary antibiotics.
However, a few times when my testing has said it’s high in leukocytes there hasn’t been an infection present. My GP has phoned with the results saying there has been a few pus cells present but antibiotics aren’t needed as there was no infection. Stupidly I’ve never asked about the pus but it doesn’t seem normal to me.
I just wondered if anyone else had experienced this or knew anything about pus in urine?
Maybe I’m just too paranoid and should stop testing!!!
