Having spent a lot of time at Ford hospital as a kid for UTI's, this is not new to me. However, I am now 58 (living in Idaho with very few good doctors), and I have had kidney stones 3 times in the last year and 3 UTI's in the last 2 mos. I am put on Cipro, things clear up, and in no time, I have the same symptoms of a UTI and am put back on Cipro. I have all the symptoms of a UTI, but my doc suggested maybe a fallen bladder, which I don't have the symptoms of. I had a complete hysterectomy in 1976 so wouldn't I have had problems before now? After having my hysterectomy, I had no UTI problems until just recently. I cannot get in to see a urologist for another month. Why the chronic stones and UTI's? Can certain meds have anything to do with this? I am currently on neurontin, prednisone, methotrexate, feldene, cholyestramine(sp?), and lipitor.
