Hello! I am 28 years old. I got my first UTI when I was pregnant back in 2010. Since then, I have been on several antibiotics over the past 5 years for chronic UTIs. Every antibiotic that you could possibly think of NO longer works. Every urine culture grows E.Coli as the main bacteria! Since March 2015, I have been taking Keflex 500mg bid for suppressive therapy. Along with taking this, I am still getting breakthrough UTIs. Since August 2015, I have received Rocephin 1g injection every month because I am still getting a UTI. What scares me is to know that I have been on Cipro, Bactrim, Levaquin, Marcobid, etc (you name it) and they all have built resistance toward the bacteria, E.Coli. What happens when Keflex does that? and each antibiotic after that? How am I still getting breakthrough UTIs? I am not sexually active, I don't drink much caffeine (other than coffee), I wipe front to back.
I have seen 4 urologist thus far because I feel they all seem to think suppressive therapy is the only option for me, but can't give me a legit reason as to why all this occurred when I got pregnant and why I am still suffering with it? I get told the same information each time! Same test, procedures, X-rays. It has become overwhelming because what happens when ALL the antibiotics stop working? What are my options then?
Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks so much!
