Yes, there is hope.... See below
Hi and thank you so much for this query.
I am so sorry to hear about this recurrent urinary tract infection
. It is rather unfortunate that this keeps showing up.
I will like to know if the pseudomonas
showed any resistance to the antibiotics on the culture and sensitivity testing of your u/a. Or, is this simply a recurrent infection after being completely treated and symptom free from the previous infection.
If it is because you keep getting infected again with the same germ, then I will suggest that the doctors look for what the various factors promoting this constant reinfection or difficulty sterilizing the urine.
If antibiotic sensitivity is not done, they should do it to tell what the exact antibiotic that would be able to help sterilize this infectious site would be.
In all, let the doctors check and make sure the antibiotics are able to act on this germ. If they are, they should try and look for contributing factors like urinary stone
, incomplete bladder emptying, etc and also consider treating you for a longer duration using another sensitive antibiotic. At worse, they should consider putting you on prophylactic antibiotics if every other measure fails.
I hope this helps. I wish you well. Thanks for using our services and feel free to ask for more information and clarification if need be.
Dr. Ivo, MD.
