I am a 40 year old female with recurring UTIS....and now excruciating pain like stabbing in my urethra...My issues started really bad back in 08 since then I have had a Total Hysterectomy and various other surgeries and tests and no doctor so far can tell me why i continue to have pain and UTIS. My cultures come back showing the bacteria present is E. Coli and no one can tell me where it is coming from. All I want is some answers to where I can go or what to do. I am desperate because some days i am doing pretty good then other days i get slammed. Just recenly i was hospitalized with a severe kidney infection for 6 days. Please someone anyone help me......God Bless You

  • thats it E=colii and cronic kidney infection. with proper antibiotics and drink plenty of water and cranberry juice and fully cooked red meat or maybe stay away from red meats. for awhile and see how you feel then.

  • Something that may help is to reduce your exposure to unsanitary items. Make sure washcloths are only used once then washed thouroghly with the laundry. Do not expose yourself to animals without sanitizing your hands thoroughly afterward. Wipe all surfaces, including door knobs with disinfectant. Use hand sanitizer before and after using the toilet. Do not use bar soap. Use hand sanitizer when exposed in public places. Be very careful when preparing foods. Many cases are contracted from contamination from raw meats. Be very careful in the kitchen. I had a family member who kept getting reinfected and this is what worked for him.BeBe
