Feeling a little better this evening. Still have a fever (99.5) and still hurts when I "piddle" but not like it was Friday. I am giving the meds until tomorrow morning and if not a lot better gonna call the urologist. Thank you for the advice and support. I'm having a hard time with the antibiotic and my stomach. Am taking it with food but within a half hour to 45 minutes after taking it am very nauseous.
Lynnwood, in response to your inquiry, no I am not on Plaquenil or anything like that as my rheumy has not let me have any. I've talked to him several times and still nothing.
All I have to say is thank God I have a very caring and quick-to-action urologist. When I went to the ER Friday as per instructions from my primary doctor, whom was gonna make me wait to hear back from her towards the end of the had I not called her office in serious pain, I immediately asked the ER nurse if she could call my urologist and he was on the phone with the ER doc within about 15 minutes. At least one of my doctors cares. Dealing with this kind of infection, I am not gonna even bother calling my PCP, I'm going straight to my urologist whom I love and trust 200% to do all he can to help me get well soon.
Hope everyone had a great weekend.
