I've started my antibiotics Monday evening and I'm still feeling rough with a slight temperature.
I had a hysterectomy 3 weeks ago to correct a prolapse but they couldnt correct my bladder prolapse so I'm unable to completely empty bladder. To be fair I was also like that before my op but it's never caused an infection before.
I'm not drinking as much water as I could be so I will try better today. Any other advice? I'm not sure at what point I should go back, especially as GP closed till Tues. I'm on MacroBID.
I'm joining this thread in sympathy. I've had a uti since Tuesday. I tried to treat with over the counter stuff and it seemed a bit better on Wednesday but I was really ill on Thursday. Managed to get a prescription so also on macrobid. I was given a three day course. I'm halfway through and still feeling rough. I thought I would be feeling better by now. Meh. I have lots of Easter plans too!
If you have been prescribed a 3 day dose of Trimethoprim, it should have kicked in by now. I get regular UTIs, but often they are resistant to this particular abx. Can you go to out of hrs with a sample and ask them to send it away to see which drugs the bacteria is sensitive to and meanwhile ask them to switch you to different abx?
Thanks all. I felt a bit crap last night but slept well. Terrible pain after I woke up. Now at EGU, retaining urine slightly. Had in/out cath now on 4 hour check of bladder but just threw up a lot of water.
On new antibiotic trimethoprim, suspect that's why I vomited. Not sure what's next. Appreciate support.
That's awful OP, sorry to hear that. Glad they have admitted you and are keeping an eye on you. Are you still just on the Trimethoprim or have they given you something else given the sepsis? Hope you feel better soon
Off for a scan soon which is good I thought I'd have to wait all day. My tummy still feels really sore but codeine is helping.
I've stopped taking trimethoprim and have been put on 2 IV antibiotics but don't know the names.
2 bags of fluid through the night, I'm managing to wee fully I think but it takes a really long time of stopping and starting and changing positions and urine looks relatively dark. Still no blood in it.
Good to hear you are on the IVs plus fluid. Hopefully they will take effect soon and you will be up and about again before too long. Take it easy and I hope you are able to get some rest (not always easy in a ward!).
Still in hospital, temperature has started to go down but keeps popping back up again. Pain almost went last night as my bowels opened I think, but back again in the night. Pain is general all over tummy which I don't think is helping them pinpoint the problem.
They are considering its not related to gynae problems so sending me off for a CT scan today really hopeful it has some good answers.
