Cystitis is back!

Posted , 5 users are following.

well, one week after the last attack my cystitis is back with a vengeance. Saw the doctor this morning, taken another sample to the lab, got 8 days antibiotics this time, and get my results Saturday morning!  It's very depressing and I hope it doesn't continue like this. I know I shouldn't moan as there are ladies on here with much worse problems than I have, but cystitis really makes you feel awful.

    Have you had an operation, or you just keep getting cystitis? Ive just had surgery & got an infection followed by a urine infection which I have to say is miserable. Getting up all night feeling like I need to pee but don't. Drinking lots of cranberry juice as its supposed to help. I hope your cystitis soon clears x

    Hi Frances. I've always had problems with cystitis both pre and post op and it's very painful and really gets you down. I usually suffer most a few days before I have my period and tried loads of things to resolve it but what works best for me is cystocalm sachets which are only about £1 from wilkos. I take two sachets and put them into a bottle of water and hey presto 3-4 hours later it's gone. I know we are all different but maybe worth trying them however if it's an infection different issue x

      Hi Liz, it's probably an E. coli infection, same as a week ago. Matron says we are susceptible to it because of the way our bodies are fashioned, seems bloody unfair to me! Doesn't seem to matter how hygienic we are.

      just needed a rant!
