6 years ago I had a Tension Tape fitted to hold my bladder up due to urine leakage. 4 years ago I became bladder incontinent and had uti’s a lot. I was prescribed a small daily dose of anti biotic Nitrofurantoin that I still take each day.
In February this year, I had a severe and painful uti, I sat in a warm bath for hours to get some comfort and I could clearly see red blood. I rang my gp who prescribed a week course of Trimethoprim. The uti cleared in 5 days, I resumed Nitrofurantoin, 4 weeks later, another uti with blood happened again. Back to 7 days Trimethoprim, then Nitrofurantoin.
Its been a regular routine of an infection, with blood every 5 or 6 weeks ever since. Can anyone offer any info, advice or had this type of regular uti problem?
Around Sept/Oct the Urologist will fit me with a Supra Pubic Catheter.
