I had TURP surgery 3 months ago and caught the E coli bacteria. My urologist has prescribed a sequence of 3 different antibiotics. after cultures were clear each time the E coli came back. Now my urologist has me on a 3 months prescription of the last antibiotic (one quarter) the dose. the urine is clearer but not clear. the prostate was very large.

General & Family Physician 's  Response
Hello,

E.Coli is one of the common bacteria which cause the urinary tract infection. The treatment consists of antibiotics. So, I suggest to use the antibiotic as prescribed by your doctor. I also suggest using anti inflammatory medications such as Acetaminophen to relieve the symptoms.

I suggest to drink liquids and especially cranberry juice for relieve.

Hope my answer was helpful. If you have further queries feel free to contact me again.

Regards,
