Welcome to XXXXXXX and thanks for your query.
Recurrent UTI needs low dose antibiotics for 3 to 6 months in about half the dose plus of course cranberry juice.
Meanwhile, ultrasound scan is necessary to look for stone or block in the urinary tract.
Uroflowmetry to check flow may be necessary.
If mucus is persistent, need evaluation by the gynecologist to look for local pathology like pelvic inflammatory disease.

Wishing you good health---
