It just goes on and on and on and.....
At the end of July I developed an UTI. First one in 14 years. I was put on three days of Bactrim by primary physician. UTI did not go away.
Saw my Hematologist Doctor and he did a culture and he was going to prescribe Tetracycline which is not made anymore. So instead he infused another antibiotic by IV for 7 days. Came home everyday with the IV needle in my arm.
Three days after that symptoms of UTI returned. My Hematologist then prescribed 10 days on Doxycycline, a cousin to Tetracycline. I felt better yet three days later the symptoms returned.
My Hematologist Doctor did a three day Culture. He then put me on Ciprofloxacin for 14 days.
I had an appointment with my Hematologist this last Tuesday and I was on the fourth day of Cipro and felt better. He did some blood work while I was there. He told me that actually I had two different bacteria infections going on in my bladder. I asked how does that happen. He did not answer me only stated he was not surprised "considering my past history".
He wants to do a five day culture two days after I finish the Cipro and if all is clear he is going to put me on Macrodantin indefinitely "considering my past history". What's one more pill to the load I already take.
Yesterday afternoon The damn symptoms returned with a vengeance. I sat in the bathroom crying. I changed my clothes and went to Walmart to pick up some AZO for the pain plus two prescriptions that my daughter's boyfriend forgot to pick up earlier in the day.
My daughter asked me what was wrong and where was I going. I told her and her boyfriend gave me the keys to the truck. They both said okay. OKAY? OH yes I forgot my daughter has a bruised knee from falling in the yard two days ago and the boyfriend did not feel good. Whatever!!!
I called the doctor to ask how one can be on an antibiotic have symptoms go away and then return while still on antibiotic. I have 7 more days to take it. The nurse called me back asked me a bunch of questions and said she will speak to my doctor and call me today sometime.
My helpful mother wants me to go to an Urologist after she told me the antibiotic Cipro is what caused my father's death (which of course not true. He had one pill of it the night he died. He was 78 with advanced stages of emphysema and his heart stopped). I am terrified of Urologists and catheters. It floods me with memories of evil stepfather and being in the hospital so many times as a child with tubes and needles in me, test after awful scary tests. Body memories, flashbacks, fear and on and on and on......
I hate my body. I hate my life. I have people around me everyday but I am lonely and alone anyway so I want to live alone with my pets. And still the evil stepfather is ruining my life and causing me pain and he is probably dead by now without ever being punished for his crimes. But OOhh I am being punished by his crimes to this day. Thanks a lot!!!
Blessings to all here
