Brief Answer:
Urethral catheterization specimen can be collected

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Greetings
Dear Mr XXXXX

There is no need for concern. Urine can be easily collected by lab technician or junior doctor by urethral catheterization with number 10 Infant feeding tube using aseptic precautions.
I would suggest you to get the following investigation
1. Urine Routine and microscopic examination
2. Urine culture and antibiotic sensitivity


Do get back to me if you need any further assistance, will be glad to assist you.

Brief Answer:
It is Urinary tract infection

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Greetings
From the reports it's obvious that cause of symptoms is Urinary tract infection. As there is absence of fever it is very reassuring. If this is first episode of Urinary tract infection there is no need for further investigation.
I would suggest a course of antibiotics for 5 days.

My brother had his stomach removed almost two years ago. He is a type one diabetic. He cannot keep any weight and currently is on dialysis. Only a small percentage of his liver is functioning. His nutrition level is at a 17 and the doctor told us today that he has fluid around his lungs and heart. Only 10% of his heart is working. They told us that there was nothing more they could do because he has refused a feeding tube....and his body is too fragile for any other treatment or surgery. I m just wondering what is his life expectancy at this point....and what can we do to increase that 10%?
