Sorry to ask for info again but this is a great place.
Had DI VINCE done 6 weeks ago,ended up with bladder infection 3 weeks ago .
Got 5 shots in the butt and had oral medication for 10 days.
Did 2 urine test and was declared cured until last fridays urine test showed the infection had returned.
So back to shots and this time 14 days of oral medication.The Dr told me it was a nasty infection.
I was so happy after some setbacks back to almost normal even went to the gym today.
Have a trip planned to spain in 3 weeks but getting worried about the recurring infection.
Like I said I feel fine but this worries me.
Thanks mr BUE

My doctor would have had me put in restraints if I had gone to the gym after only 6 weeks out from DaVinci - he wouldn't clear me for anything other than walking until almost 12 weeks.
For the infections - one issue I had was incontinence - having to use 7-8 pads a day for months. At first I was not changing them often enough. The dampness seemed to have been provoking back-to-back Urinary Tract Infections. I have three that required heavy antibiotics and kept coming back, one more that was lighter and cleared up with an older $4 generic.
One thing to check with the pharmacist or doctor - are you eating / taking something else that might limit the effectiveness of the antibiotic? They tell me not to use dairy products or take antacids for several hours before/after the meds.
