Recurring bladder problems, diagnosed with fibroid. What type of diet or medicine will help?

Since two reoccuring bladder problems and meds, I am trying to help myself. I was recently diagnosed with fibroids. Will this present condition, although doctor explained it to be common, cause bladder problems. My two are small and not worth taking out. Doctor says "we will watch". Only sometime I feel something and then I know I MUST drink more more water. Pls Answer and thanks.

Thanks for using Healthcaremagic,
I have gone through available details, you have fibroids in uterus and having recurrent bladder infection.
If there is any obstruction to passage of urine then only fibroid may cause recurrent UTI.
If there is no obstruction and your infection is cured after proper drugs just take plenty of fluids and take care of hygiene.
Otherwise also females are prone to urinary infection so discuss with your Gynecologist and if necessary prophylactic antibiotics may be given to you, specially in association with sexual activity.You should take proper prescription before taking any drug.

If fibroids are small then they do not require surgery but if there is irregular or excessive bleeding then may require surgery.
Hope this helps
Take care.
Good Luck.
