On 11/13 I was diagnosed with an e-coli extremely resistent to most antibiotics. It took 6 days to get me on the right meds. Since that time I have had excrutiating back and pelvic pain 24/7. I have had Mri's, Cat-Scans and bloodwork with all results negative. I am now on oxycodene 10/325 to manage me through the pain. I have lost 28lbs and have started sweating profusely upon wakening, sometimes for three hours or more. The UTI has not left my body completely. I have had three urine cultures and although the counts are lower the E-Coli still exists. I have had vaginal infections as well. I have been out of work for three months with no relief. The only thing that happened prior to this infection was a small dog bite which drew blood on my left wrist. The Dr's all seem to think that it's not the cause. Anyone out there have any insight?
