UTI
hello
       Past one month had a series of problems.. used to get pain while urinating in the mornings, showed an MD was diagonised with UTI after getting an urine test done, as the urine test showed an minor increase in pus cells. Went on an course of antibiotics but to no relief. As morning pain developed to increase in urination. Changed the MD and again went thru a series of  tests viz Urine culture, Blood test and Sonography. Urine culture showed negative, blood test an increase in WBC and songraphy a slightly enlarged prostrate.
        Am still being treated for UTI and put on a course of antibiotics as enlarged prostrate was minor and nothing to worry abt according to the MD. Following antibiotics were prescribed.
  a) efpodoxime proxetil with Potassium Clavulanate Tablets with trade name of Opox- CV 200- 2 times daily
  b) Urimax-0.4 mg - 2 times daily
       After being prescribed with the above course experienced a relief so urimax was reduce to 0.2 mg once a day.
         Had to travel  so was armed with a course of the above tablets for a fortnight as prescribed by the MD.
           Now my prescribed antibiotics are almost over and with no relief in sight. Still experiencing frequent urges of urinating. Which subside on its own for a day or two giving a feeling of well being and then resurface. As am travelling at the moment have no way of getting the prescribed medicines for another couple of months. Have finished the dose of antibiotics. Last one day urges to urinate had subsided to a minimum but today getting a constant pain( throbbing or burning???) near the tip of the penis. Urinating flow is reduced and when i urinate its all over the place have problems controlling the direction. Keep urinating in spurts, stops for couple of seconds and then starts for a while. Experience a fishy odor but that has been always there so thght as normal till the time i read some of the queries. As have no excess to drugs how can i manage till another couple of months as this feeling is not very comforting

Hi there!

Well, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Possibilities that may need to be considered include GU infections, inflammations, trauma, growths/ masses, neuro-muscular issues etc. Though the antibiotic prescribed is broad spectrum, it is possible that the infection is due to a small group of organism not covered by the antibiotic. Also discomfort due to prostatic enlargement may take time to respond to medications. If after the completion of the antibiotic course, there is no relief noted; you may seek a review with your treating doctor or considering an evaluation by a urologist for a detailed evaluation. After a specific cause is identified, this can be managed accordingly.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
