I think you have been suferring from recurrent UTI. I would like to know your age and gender. I suggest followings:

1. Do a ultasound of abdomen with post voidel residual urine.
2. Do urine culture and sensitivity, check your Fasting and posprandial blood suger and serum creatinine.
You may requre a prolong course of antibiotics as per culture sensitivity reports.
