Health Vent - TMI Alert!

Recommended Posts

Hi LeAnne,

 

I was talking with a friend a few weeks ago about this. She was very susceptible to re-occuring UTI's...(she has been UTI free for the past 7 months!) She has since seen a naturopath who has suggested using "Bladder Ease", along with Acidophilus (Pro-biotic) daily. What her naturopath had explained to her is that from continued antibiotic therapy to treat the UTI's the uterine lining becomes ulcerated over time leaving you more susceptible to them.

 

It might be worth it for you to source out a naturopath and see what they might be able to do for you if your initial treatment does not serve you well? She is very happy with the results.

 

Wishing you all the best...

Ugh, that sucks! I totally feel for you! I've had hundreds in my life and they're awful! I was born with spina bifida and that's one of the more minor but still extremely annoying side effects. My doctor prescribed me Macrobid to take at times when I may be suceptible (eg. after sex) and I've found that it's really effective. I haven't had one in over a year now! I've also been told to avoid perfumed soaps, hot tubs etc. and not to wear underwear to bedhuh.gif lol. I pretty much do everything but the no underwear thing...I need security at night, lol.

Aww sorry to hear about your health issues and how expensive the drugs are...wow! sad.gif Hopefully it'll make you feel better and NOT make you lose your hair.

 

My co-worker had been having UTI infections too (she's been with the same guy for like 25 years so it's not stds either or anything) and now they're telling her that her worst case scenario is cancer of the bladder but she won't find out for sure for another few months. I'm glad that you don't have cancer, that would be terrifying!

I suffered with the same thing and it took forever to diagnose. I took the pills but I really researched it and conquered it naturally. I changed my diet (surf the web there is a ton of websites that will tell you how to diet, basically no alcohol, no spicy, no acidic -sucks but hey you get skinny), I also took Quercetin research it and see how it works for you. By doing so I completely recovered. It's funny but my doctor told me there was NO natural remedies and that I would suffer for life with out the medications. She said if the supplement really worked than everyone would be taking it. Well time did tell and I completely recovered but I was strict on my diet no cheating and tried to be more stress free. Maybe it was because I was paying $250 for the medication that really motivated me (I had horrible insurance than) but either way I did it. PM me if you want more details and I feel for you no one understands the pain unless they have gone through it. Stay strong and research!

Wow leanne I hope the drug works. if it were me the price wouldn't be that bad but the idea of taking pills 3x a day would kill me. I have to take an antibiotic 2x a day for 7 day bc of a minor ear infection. Let's just say I started taking the pills 3 weeks ago and I took the last one today. I really suck at remembering to take pills.

Oh god, how awful. I really hope the pills work - you don't want soemthing like that hanging around long enough to spoil your day. As you say, at least it's something that can be treated.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
