    I'm not a medically qualified person and as a 75 year old male my problems are entirely different to that of your daughter.

    Do you know whether your daughter might be Vitamin B12 deficient as there appears to be a link between that and urinary problems.

    Also there is another forum on here for Neurogenic bladder problems and I wonder if it might be an idea to post your questions on there too.

    I wish you and your daughter well and a relief from this distressing situation

      Please do pursue the B12 connection as a deficiency attacks the nervous system which controls even the simple task of going to the toilet.

      Given your daughter's history if she's not had any B12 injections for 2 years it would be good for her serum B12 and serum Folate to be tested as she may well be deficient again

    Hi there,

    I feel so much empathy for your daughter, as although rare, the same thing happened to me. I have now been self catheterising for 3 years and am now under Harley Street for help, as no other consultant can help me. I have a reoccurring uti and it's become embedded behind a biofilm. It's a truly nightmare life!! I never thought I would end up this way. The only organisation that helped me was the COB foundation. They are very helpful there and can send you literature. Please let me know how you get on, as am really interested as what we have is very rare. All the very best. Sam x

      Hiya Sam it's very sad to say this but it's good to know that she is not on her own.She is under a consultant that is excellent in this type of condition.But unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a cure.My daughter is the same constantly getting uti she takes a low does of antibiotics daily to stop infection.If an infection gets out of control then she as to go in to hospital for a few days on a intravenous drip.Its a horrible condition.I certainly will let you know of her next visit to see her consultant and what can be done to help her.Take care and thank you it really does mean a lot 💕💕💕💕
