My husband was prescribed zyvox for a UTI that was

My husband was prescribed zyvox for a UTI that was resistant to most antibiotics. I see so many foods to avoid because of tyramine content. He is recovering from serious surgery and a blood infection. I want him to eat soup that i would make today but give him throughout the next few days. However, I am concerned based on what I am reading that he can only eat food prepared the same day, etc. the list is so extensive. He has high blood pressure and takes medication for that. I am worried about what I can feed him.

Diagnosed with Klebseilla UTI 2 wks. ago. Was prescribed Bactrim. Took for 7 days. Seemed to be cleared up. Had intercourse right after, and the next day, the UTI was back. Symptoms are frothy urine, grey-tinged, cloudy color, foul odor, slight burning. Now, 4 days later, urine is not very foamy anymore, but still smelly and very cloudy and grey. Does this sound like klebseilla again, or something else? I have Macrobid that I can take (a few months old) while I await results of urine culture. The Bactrim I took didn t seem to kill off all the bacteria...might Macrobid be more effective? I get UTIs almost every month, always right after intercourse. My husband and I have been married for over 40 years, and due to these UTIs, we only have intercourse once a week. Even so, they usually result in my getting a UTI. I am so fed up with practically living on antibiotics. Pls. help. Thank you.

I am supposed to meet with a elderly client tomorrow and she tells me she s been in the hospital with an infection (started with a UTI, then sort of a cold)--she couldn t tell me the name of the bug--but said it had a really long name, and she s still on antibiotics and not allowed to visit her husband in the nursing wing. She said the visiting nurse is no longer masked, gloved. Is it safe for me to visit her for several hours? I am dealing with her paperwork.
