Chronic UTIs after gall bladder removal surgery

I had laparoscopic surgery to remove my gall bladder last Nov.  I had 3 large stones and several small ones.  The surgery went fine but about a month later, I had a UTI, then have had one at least every month since.  I'm just recovering from my 11th UTI and am now immune to Cipro. What can be causing this chronic UTI?  I have good hygiene and release fluids after intimacy.

If you're having diarrhea following the surgery, the toilet water 'splash back' can contamination. You may not even realize it's happening.

The other thing you could try would be some probiotics. Your good bacteria could have gotten a bit messed up with the surgery and the first round of antibiotics. Probiotics might be able to stabilize things a bit.
