I had a confirmed UTI in mid September. 5 days ago (Sat), I began symptoms again---extreme pain while urinating & difficulty emptying my bladder. Next day (Sun), I go to Urgent Care who takes a urine sample & says I have a UTI, gives me Cipro 500mb BID & sends me home. By Mon morning, the burning is unbearable & I see my gynecologist nurse practitioner. She swabs my vagina & takes another urine sample. She says I do have a yeast infection (probably from antibiotics) & gives me Terconazole 0.04% Crm 1applctr at HS x7nights. I suffered thru Tues with extreme urinating pain & burning tissue. By Wed, the GYN office sends me to the ER because they said there's nothing more than can do.
I go to the ER yesterday. He gets results from last Sunday's exam faxed to him, says I probably did NOT have a UTI then. But after the CT scan he ordered, and looking at my urine sample that he said "has 11 WBC's in it", he concluded that I passed a kidney stone, NOW have a UTI because of it and since I don't have a fever, nausea, vomiting or any significant abdominal pain or flank pain (tho I did experience a slight bit of achiness in those places that day), he gave me a 50ml piggyback of Rocephin and then sent me home with rx's for Ceftin 250mg BID x7 days and some Darvocet-N 100mg.
Absolutely no Urologist in this city can see me sooner than 2 weeks from now. Although sitting, bending and walking is somewhat better than yesterday, I still cannot urinate without nearly being in tears. I have to sometimes "push" to finish and my vaginal tissues are fire-red and burn like heck when I go.
My question is this:
How much longer do I suffer with this before it will go away? The ER doctor said the stone probably cause irritation to my urethra and it'll take a while to heal. I'm not so sure he knows what he's talking about and just gave me more antibiotics and sent me away because he didn't know what else to do.
Please, please help me!!
