Is DC Hazardous To Your Health?!

BabaraL in the ER over the weekend, LPBeier in the ER today and now me.

I have been suffering the symptoms of a urinary track infection since Friday afternoon. Started taking an antibiotic on Sunday and Flomax on Monday but still no "go", if you know what I mean.

Doc told be not to hesitate to go to the ER if The 'retention' continued as it's dangerous. So when I spent a good part of last night standing in the bathroom hoping for enough relief so I could sleep a little, I decided the time was right.

I am no the proud owner of a catheter. That's about as proud as owning a root canal. I own it for the rest of the week then it's gone and all my problems with it. At least that's how I've written the script.

This sucks.

Thanks, dawg. I rescheduled dinner with my sis and BIL from Saturday to Monday (I was sure I'd be better by then). Then I rescheduled them to Wednesday (I mean, it can't take that long...). When I called her today to tell her what happened, she told me to call to reschedule AFTER I was 100%!

Andy, I feel for you my friend. I am still waiting for the results of my ct but am already attached to my first iv dose of antibiotic and have had a shot of b12.

Take care of yourself.

I was thinking the same thing Andy. Sorry to hear you have such troubles. Hope things "come out" okay in the end. My MIL had problems going during and after an infection and had the catheter. Unfortunately, she also has dementia so that was a lot of fun to keep her from pulling the thing out.

Don't, I repeat don't pull that thing out...you want to talk about pain. Sorry you are going through this Andy, it's no fun. If you are determined to remove it before the doc does, PM me first.

I hope the Flomax works!
