UTI

Posted , 2 users are following.

hi everyone. i wonder if any of you have had this experience. i have UC but mild and i take Pentasa daily plus Salofac rectal enemas. Every few months, i have horrible symptoms, exhaustion, blood and nausea. My calprotectin result is 8. i am supposed to have a sigmioscopy next week as the gastro doesn't want to give me steroids before knowing what's going on. i went to the walking centre yesterday and i have a water infection. i was so relieved it wasn't the colitis. The blood is haemoroids . I really suffer from them but the gastro doesn't want to do anything about it.

My question is, bear with me. The nurse dips my urine, tells me I have an infection, sends it to the lab and it always comes back negative. I take my 3 days antibiotics and i feel fine. I just don't understand it. anyone out there could enlighten me? Thank you.
