I think the UTI is still with me, dammit. I am drinking heaps of water but the funny thing is that I'm not really getting a flow on, if you know what I mean... At this stage no burning or stinging, just frequent need to urinate but not passing much water. That's how it started last time. Sigh. Will see how I go for the next few hours and if there is no improvement I'll have to go back to the Doc.
I guess it could be possible that because I have low WBC and Neuts it is harder for my body to get on top of the infection, despite having had a 3 day course of antibods. I have read that it can take anywhere from 10 days to 3 months to get rid of a persistent UTI and that women who are going through menopause are more susceptible. I reckon I score pretty high on the risk list then.
I'm also using the alkaliniser and cranberry but not much is helping. Also feeling quite wasted from Friday's shot. It's a beautiful day outside but I can only look at it cos going out in it causes my skin to feel radiated immediately and the heat makes me nauseous.
I thought the second 6 months of tx was going to be just more of the same, but it appears that there are still more side effect surprises on the way... Joy!!
