  • site for bacterial infection...

    talks about the bacterial infection in layman's terms...hope this helps someone other than me. I see my gyno on thurs/the treatment he has me on is making me more
    miserable than the infection teri
    Courage does not always roar. Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow".

    terri,thanks for the info. i have had a gray discharge off and on for a year. the last time i had a urinary infection my gyno said it was "something" that started in the vagina and traveled to the bladder. he was very foggy about the details but i do remember he said something about labitollius(sp?) i have an appt. with my uro wed for a dsmo,herpian instill and i will ask him about this. maybe this will be the missing link and the reason why i have not had much relief from this year long flare. i think 8 days of no pain in 1 year insn't relief. my new uro did put me on zithromax and i did start feeling better of the 4 and 5 day. that was yesterday and i have finished the 7 day pack. i hope he will keep me on this longer because i was seeing a ray of hope. he also last week did several new test for hidden bacteria. amybe he will find something but i am definatly going to bring up the bv to him. every time i go off the macrobid i get an infection so he is doing a test that "undermines or something" the macrobid. i'll let ya'll know what happens. i just really never had all the ic symptoms because my urine volume can be over 16 oz. at a time and i only urinate about 8 times a day. sometimes more when i over do the water. you see i drink 2 liters of water a day and have for 10years. so i am going to go alot. i do this because i have rosacea and it really helps with the facial flushing. i am also on a low carb diet and have been for 2 years. i have found this keeps the rosacea under control and i haven't had to take meds because of this. hope you are feeling good today.

      oh, i don't want anyone to think i don't have ic i just think i have this bv with mine and that is why i have had know relief. i have followed the diet, taken the meds and have had 4 rimso treatments with know luck. the pain is still there and hasn't gone away. i just think i should have some relief from this by now. with all the treatments and the diet. i also take herbal supplements and am very healthy. if you saw me you would never think i have ic. that has been the hardest to deal with.
