UTI and Kidney Function

Thank you Ginger. It’s always reassuring to hearing other people’s direct experiences. For the past 6 months I had 2 rounds of UTI. The doctor prescribed a mild antibiotics the first time, but sent the urine sample to a lab. She called me after a week and said I had two strands of bacteria and her prescribed antibiotics only works for one of the two. But my symptoms were abated and she thought i should be okay. Then my UTI came back and this time she prescribed a different antibiotics. But she only gave me 7 days. I started to feel somewhat better after 6 days. Now it’s back. So I’m thinking the original problem was never completely fixed. My concern is that if not dealt with the problem could affect my kidneys - which could cause the foamy urine - like proteins in the urine. I made an appointment with my doctor for this week and I will see what she says.

@ih60 I tend to agree with your thoughts the original infection was never completely cleared up! I hope the doctor will give you the correct medications this week.

Will you let me know what they say?
