I had a UTI with shooting pain in the upper groin and took 7 days of cipro 80 tablets of cystex, phenylhydrine stuff, 3 days more of cipro and I still have some pain in the groin. Should I continue on the cystex? I've also had numbness in the groin for years now maybe from diabetes...
I read that methenamine can be continued long-term and that the dosage is 2 1g tablets a day so could I take 6 tablets of cystex at once with 2000mg vit C?
I went to this uro and he kept saying it was ok since my urine just had a little blood in it, but maybe that UTI I had was never fully cured with 14 days of cipro and now I have permanent damage and no nerve feeling in my groin
Oftentimes I've had to go on a few weeks antibiotic therapy for UTI's. They can be extremely resistant and/or if not the right choice of antibiotic won't fully clear them up. Did they do a culture and find the causitive organism?
AZO can help a lot, but it also may be masking symptoms. Oftentimes doctors won't allow AZO without their permission first because of that reason. But I hope your UTI is gone by this writing.
