Thank you so much ericsmom, Sherrine (that site is so informative!), Tootiebug58, and Mrsppmrsky!
You all gave me great information and a new, broader perspective on this. Yesterday was my last day of Cipro (I took the full course this time since I called him on Saturday and he said to take it all) --at my last dr. appt when I explained I often feel like a uti is coming on, he'd tell me to just take a couple of antibiotics (not the full dose).
So that's what I did. Perhaps I've built up an immunity to the strain of bacteria? (I did always test postive for bacteria).
What's stronger than Cipro? Should I be on it longer than 5 days?
Again, thank you all again for responding!! It helps so much to know that someone out there reads and cares enough to respond!
