Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 months ago):
UTI seems chronic with similarity to IC (diet seems to affect severity of symptoms). Have been on four courses of antibiotics in four months and other than the first course, no real "recovery" can be claimed.
From this study (2 years ago):
I have been having uti's repeatedly for 5 months and have been taking cipro. but everytime i finish the cipro within 5-7 days the symptoms reappear. recently late at night after taking temazepam I have been unaware of things I am doing.MRI showed no problems in bladder or kidneys.
