    Suggest treatment for UTI and dysuria

I have had dysuria for 1.5 years. I am f 72. Drs give me antibiotics for five or seven days but the UTI does not clear. I have two kdney stones ( quite large) but no urologist will treat those. The stones do not pass. I am screaming with pain when urinating but no one seems to believe me. I know I am atrophied. Is there any hope that I could get antibiotics for a longer period; also should I take two together? No Dr has ever suggested taking two. I only drink I have had for one year has been water. I cannot leave my home because of the frequency. Thank you, Kate

Drink plenty of liquids, especially water. Drinking water helps dilute your urine and ensures that you'll urinate more frequently — allowing bacteria to be flushed from your urinary tract before an infection can begin.
Wipe from front to back. Doing so after urinating and after a bowel movement helps prevent bacteria in the anal region from spreading to the vagina and urethra.
Empty your bladder soon after intercourse. Also, drink a full glass of water to help flush bacteria.
Avoid potentially irritating feminine products. Using deodorant sprays or other feminine products, such as douches and powders, in the genital area can irritate the urethra.
Change your birth control method. Diaphragms, or unlubricated or spermicide-treated condoms, can all contribute to bacterial growth.
