Urinary infection

Hi,

I have been badly troubled with recurring Urinary infections. My urine culture shows I am infected with proteus mirabilis bacteria. This is the third time I am infected with in last 3 months. I had a cystoscopy done and my doctor said that
every thing looked good. I am taking LEVAQUIN 500 now for the infection. I am told to take it for 3 weeks.

Could you please help to understand why I keep getting the infection? I am really worried about this.

Do I need to consult another doctor?

Thanks and Regards,

Vilas

The bacteria can be found throughout stones, and these bacteria lurking in the stones can reinitiate infection after antibiotic treatment. Ask you doctor about this next time you see them.

My doctor did an ultra sound to check for stone, but it came out negative...

he would need to try a cystoscopy procedure to check for stones that an ultra sound may not show.
