I know some of you know that I was sent home from the hospital untreated with the a UTI. Was back in ER two days later, and sent home on antibiotics. A week later the ER nurse calls and tells me I'm not on the right antibiotic. I had E.coli (treatable with Keflex) and was expecting that. Also had Klebsiella. Had to take 10 days of Zyvox (used to only be available IV, now in pill). Went back to the dr today, and still have this UTI. No wonder I feel like crap! I have another round of Cipro, had a shot in butt, have to go back tomorrow and Saturday for more shots in the butt. I just so want to feel better, and be over this! My question is is recurrent UTI's a problem with ileostomates? Is this what I have to look forward to? How can I prevent them?
