I did have an infection!

Posted , 3 users are following.

me again! Went to my GP who would not "prescribe Blind" but wanted a urine test. This took a week to come back, and I was prescribed antibiotics 50 mg. a week later I had to go to A & E, where I was given antibiotics 500 mg!!! I a m now much better, and starting to do things around the house, and taking short walks, feeling much better, niggling pains gone etc.

Am not seeing Consultant until June 23rd, but am wondering if I could now book a holiday for early July, when I will be 9 weeks post-op?

      Hi Helen

      i had a TVT tape and an anterior wall repair - I am 66. I had  a urine infection, and had 2 lots of antibiotics which have thankfully done the job. Looking forward to my holiday now!! Hope you enjoy yours too.

    Hi Celia,

    Was your infection cystitis? if so, just get a packet of sachets from the chemist or supermarket for cystitus relief. You do not need the doctor for that and they are instant and far better and more effective than antibiotics. A brand name is Oasis from a chemist or the supermarkets have their own brands which are equally as good.

    What operation are you booked in for? Is it a prolapse? do think carefully as there are ways of managing a prolapse without an operation which can have mixed results, Lynne on this forum has a lot of ladies sharing their methods of dealing with the problem.

    Do hope this helps,
