Going to ER

I have a UTI that has spread to my kidney. I had a 102.2 temp before Tylenol, nausea, chills, lower back, flack pain & spasming and pain in my lower abdomen. Started antibiotics yesterday.
Feel lousy. I am dizzy and having trouble getting to the BR in time. DH had to buy me adult underwear.
My doctor is sending me to ER.
Please pray.
Dorothy

I'm so sorry. I'm praying that the doctors will be able to successfully treat your infection (IV antibiotics?), and that you will soon be feeling good again, with no lasting damage.

Please let us know when you can.

I am glad you went. Kidney infections are miserable, and nothing to mess around with. Hopefully after 24 hours of antibiotics, you'll start feeling better.


I am sorry this has happened!

I know I hate to go to doctors, let alone the hospital but every time I actually had to go they were able to make me a lot more comfortable than I was at home.
They may even up the antibiotics to make the infection go away faster.
Hoping for a quick recovery for you.

I prayed for you. Not sure if you remember, but I had UTIs on and off for a year. I developed a fever with one of the UTIs but nobody ever verified if the infection went to my kidney. I also became very incontinent (but I also had a very large ovarian cyst that was later removed). Finally a doctor put me on low dose antibiotics for three months. I had already started taking a D-Mannose supplement with cranberry, hibiscus and vitamin c in it. My doctor could only say that appears to help some people, that there just haven't been enough studies for it to be an approved treatment that he could recommend. He did not tell me to stop. It has been five months and I have not been aware of another UTI. The incontinence has eased up back to my normal which is minor compared to when I was sick. Just saying, don't get discouraged. Get better. There really is hope.
