This is my third full day on Cipro. I am drinking lots of water; still experiencing urgency and frequency but no other symptoms. Drinking so much water is keeping urine very clear.
The biggest problem I have is the Crohn's. Antibiotics can cause digestive trouble, but some of the foods I can usually eat are off limits as I am avoiding simple carbs, anything too starchy or sugary, at all - no pasta, rice, white bread, etc. I can't have whole grains, bran, or anything with high fiber. Usually, I do okay with oatmeal, but lately I've had to avoid it because there is some active disease and it was causing some problems.
I really need some kind of bread or carb that won't feed the UTI bacteria. Looking online, I see that sourdough bread is an option. Does anyone know if this would be okay with the UTI?
Also, does anyone know if unsweetened cranberry juice helps if the bacteria is not E. coli? I think cranberry is the source for d-Mannose, but I don't have E. coli according to test results and don't want to drink something that won't help. I also read about blueberry juice. I know sugary fruit juices are not an option.
Trying to stay optimistic, but this is a nightmare.
