    You should go in and get another culture to make sure you still have the actual infection. I know three months ago I had a nasty UTI and it flared me for weeks! It took forever to get over the symptoms. It could be that the actual infection is gone, just that you still have all the inflammation since you also have IC. I would check with the doctor and ask to have another culture done. Hope you feel better real soon.

    Oh, gosh... I'm sorry you've been feeling so horrible!! I hope the UTI goes away soon.

    I know what you are going through though -- I'm having UTI-like symptoms including urine that smells like, according to my husband, "a Porta-Potty." He's right; my first pee this morning REEKED. So, off I go to get tested....

    And I know how it is about calling in sick too -- I really wanted to do it today, but (1) the employee health clinic at work will see me for free, and my PCP will charge $15 (or is it now $20) just to do a damn UTI test, and (2) I FEEL SOOOO GUILTY EVERY TIME I HAVE TO CALL IN. And the guilt makes it so I can't rest properly... so I end up coming in.

    ARRRRRGH! This UTI refuses to go away.

    This is getting absolutely rediculous. This stubborn UTI has hung around now for a little over 2 weeks. I had my anti changed from leavaquin to macrobid last Friday and the infection is still present. I did have a experience a little relief Monday and Tuesday but the burning was back to an all time high by Wednesday evening. I managed to make it through work all 4 days but today the pain is almost unberable. I hate calling in sick. Horrible bladder spasms and the worst smelling urine ever. I have been peeing 4 to 5 times an hour all morning. Every trip to the potty is soooooo frustrating. My uti's rarely last this long. They usually go away after about 10 days or so. Somtimes within a week. My back is starting to hurt, so I am afraid this infection may be spreading to my kidneys. I am sick and tired of being sick and tired.
