Since more than a year i have an chronic cystitis and uti. I had many antibiotic treatments, including a 6 time bladder rinse. After 4 month the infection was not complete gone, but i felt much better, and since then i am on a maintenance dose antibiotics. I also suffer from severe urine incontinence due to an overactive bladder that i was diagnosed for many years ago. I had medication, physiotherapy, botox treatment, and sacral neuromodulation, all without success.
Lately i noticed that the maintenance dose antibiotics doesn't help anymore. I have a lot of pain in my bladder, prostate and testicles and the smell of my urine is unbearable. The combination of incontinence and that smell is very frustrating. I just feel dirty all the time, and i’m afraid to go out of the house, because i can smell myself, and so others can too.
Next week i have an appointment with my urologist. Does anyone know what other treatments there are? I am very depressed because i think i am out of options.
