I've struggled with UTI for the last 6-12mo. Urine cultures keep revealing E.coli. Most antibiotics are resistant except macrobid and IV meds. Urologist performed cystocopy (normal), ultrasound (normal with R kidney hydronephrosis), CT scan showed no hydronephrosis but two 2mm non obstructing LEFT kidney stones. I keep having symptoms of what feels like uti that subsides with drinking a lot of water. Macrobid removes all symptoms while i'm on it but they return 2 days after I stop taking them. I don't have any other symptoms, the pain I usually feel is bladder discomfort and pain in urethra, some burning and urgency. Don't know what else to do now. I'm a 35 yr old female, otherwise healthy. With past history of 1-2/yr UTI's associated with sexual activity only. Oh, urine dipsticks always indicate nitrate + but leukocyte -. Urologist says that kidney stones should pass on their own, but otherwise doesn't know what to do????!
ANy help would be greatly appreciated.
