Hi @taxpayinghorse,

Gentamicin is an antibiotic medicine that is used to treat and prevent urinary tract infections (UTIs). It can be given directly into the bladder through a catheter which is called bladder irrigation. I found this published study which you might want to read, especially since it researches antibiotic resistance while on gentamicin instillations. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5798439/

I'm also tagging @predictable to see if he has any thoughts to add.

Thanks a million. I will read it. I just got done reading it. I must be very ignorant. I couldn't understand most of what I read. "Significant side effects of daily oral suppressive antibiotics can occur8 and along with changing the genitourinary flora,10 antibiotics can also affect the oral, pulmonary, skin, vaginal, and bowel commensals, and lead to increased findings of antibiotic-resistant organisms. That one sentence I would like to know what it means. Does it cause stomach/bowel problems using this gentamycin directly into the bladder?
