Infection in bladder, IBS. How to get cured?

I am asking you this for my daughter. She had a baby a year ago July and has had pain in her stomach . Has been to outpatients several times and each time she goes she has been put on different antibiotics. She is not feeling better and in fact is feeling worse. I am so concerned that she has been on too many antibiotics. She has been told that she had infection in her bladder , then had an obstructions and now is being told that she has IBS . I am so worried and so is she to the point of crying.

Hello ma'am.

I can understand your concern. Let me provide basic and simple information to you. Request for a culture of her urine to be performed. This investigation will test the urine to find the specific bacteria causing the infections, and also test various antibiotics against it. This will then yield a result by finding the efficacy of all the antibiotics against that infection-causing organism. This information can then be used to find the most effective antibiotic to kill the infection both rapidly and effectively; and most importantly-permanently.

About the IBS, antibiotics cannot help treat IBS. Try using a combination of medication called mebeverine and chlordiazepoxide. This has shown to have most effective results in controlling IBS.

Hope this helps.

Best wishes.
