How To Deal With Urinary Tract Infections?
Good morning, on December 27, 2018 at night, I complained of pain when urinating and it was incomplete. Then on December 28, 2018 morning I checked UL on my own request and the results were 100 Leu / uL Leukocytes, 25 mg / dL Protein, and 250 Ery / uL Erythrocytes, and microscopic results of “Many” Leukocytes, 10-12 Leukocytes, and Epithelium 4 – 6. Then I consulted the ER doctor and was given a prescription of Ciprofloxacin 500mg 10 tablets with a dose of 2 x 1. After the antibiotics ran out, I checked the APS lab again and the results were 500 Leuocytes / uL, Negative Protein, Negative Erythrocytes, and microscopic results Erythrocytes 1-2, Leukocytes 6-8, and Epithelium 8-10. I no longer have any complaints of pain during urinating, and no longer feel any excitement. Are further treatments needed? thank you
Hello Meutia, Thank you for the question.
Have you checked your doctor again? Urinary tract infections (UTI) are infections caused by bacteria in the urinary tract. This condition is more common in women because the urinary tract / urethra is shorter than in men. UTIs are caused by bacteria that move from the anus to the urinary tract and cause urinary tract infections. Some of the complaints caused by UTIs are pain during urination, often urination but less urine coming out, difficult to hold urination, incomplete feeling after urination, abdominal pain down, back pain, fever, nausea, vomiting, decreased appetite. To diagnose someone with a UTI, the doctor needs to ask the patient's complaints, examine the patient, and conduct further examinations such as urine and ultrasound. If proven to have a UTI, the patient will be treated with antibiotics for a certain period.
The results of your second urine check still show signs of infection even though you have no symptoms. It is feared that the treatment you have been through is not yet complete to overcome the infection that occurs. You should re-consult with the doctor who treats you. The doctor will re-examine you before determining further treatment.
Please do the following suggestions:
multiply consumption of water avoid the habit of holding BAK always clean the genital area from front to back after BAK, not the reverse direction avoid intercourse until you recover Hopefully this information is useful.
