I’m writing this at 3:30am as I’m in absolutely agony.
I’m a 21 year old female and on the Wednesday 15th August, I had a cystoscopy and urethral dilatation, since I’ve been getting reoccuring UTIs for the last few years.
I already have duplex kidneys, and had kidney reflux and bladder reimplantation when I was a year old.
I went to the GP on Thursday 16th and I was told I have a UTI, so he prescribed me augmentin (625mg). Although, it got to Saturday 18th morning and I was in severe pain, to the point I was throwing up and felt like I was going to pass out. So I went to a&e, they made me feel like I was stupid and prescribed me trimethoprim, even though I’ve had tests and I’m extremely resistant to those - only found this out a few weeks ago.
Can anyone advise me on what to do? I’m not sure if this horrific pain is normal, I’m on oramorph and even a hot water bottle isn’t getting rid! The only thing the cystoscopy showed was a lot of scar tissue.
I honestly feel like they look at me stupid when i say anything about my pain . I’m debating going to a different hospital where there is an actual urology team. I’m terrified I’m gonna end up in hospital again, I was only in a month ago and ended up with a severe kidney infection, and my inflammation markers were that high I was at risk for sepsis.
Thanks in advance!!
