Recurrent UTI - Cystoscopy

Posted , 1 user is following.

I have been having issues with my kidney for 4 months and have had several infections and have been on 8 doses of antibiotics every 2 weeks yet this infection keeps recurring. They said there is a heavy amount of protein, leucocytes and nitrates and now traces of blood so have decided the next step will be to have a camera look into my bladder.

They have not told me what they are looking for or what reasons there could be for this? I had a scan 5 months ago before the infections started which showed a large cyst but the doctors say that wouldnt cause any issues as its harmless.

I am hoping its just a very nasty bacteria and eventually another type of anti biotics will clear it but if not what else could be causing it?
