Thank you for your reply. I have already explored this website before making my approach to your group. Though they talk of infections etc at length, none of the partners makes it a speciality in their 'about me'. They all have a passion for prostrate and none in the female problems. This is why I asked the question.
I have used google to try to suss the answer. What I need is someone with access to professional information not available to me surfing the internet, to help me find someone who will see beyond my current situation, which is that we have run out of anti-biotic treatment orally. No-one is actually exploring the reasons why these infections are happening in spite of the tests run.
e.g.when I pass urine it was noticed there is a washback to the kidneys...surely that needs further investigation...etc
Hope you can take my query about progressing from antibiotics to further understanding, not just give me the address of any old urologist!!! Got the tee shirt for that.
Yes I have had a cystoscopy and urodynamic tests, which will be available to the right consultant. As far as I can tell, the answers were to up the antibiotics. They avoided addressing such issues as the wash back of the urine to the kidneys for example, or why the infections are re-occurring or not being cleared by the anti-biotics.
The Ipswich microbiologist is suggesting perhaps further exploration as to the causes needs to be done. As a private patient I want to find a consultant who will take me to the next level of exploration not just repeat all that has gone before and then abandon me because he cant recommend a relevant anti-biotic
East anglia and have seen urologists in Ipswich and Colchester who walk away after saying there are no further anti-biotics they can recoemmend
It is getting late. Can we continue with this discussion to-morrow. I thought it a simple enquiry but there seems difficulty in understanding my need for a specific referral
I used the wrong term. I know you cant make a referral. My question is I need help to find the right sort of urologist beyond using google.
I am in East Anglia but will travel for the right help. This has been ongoing for thirty years and getting worse recently.
I have seen urologists in Ipswich and Colchester who lose interest when anti-biotics dont work. The microbiologist in Ipswich suggested I look for a deeper approach to the problem
This is a professional body and they are unable to recommend what steps I should take.
From my own personal searching I am beginning to wonder if I should be looking for a urogynaecologist as this would seem more suitable for my needs. I have located some in East Anglia. These specialists are more dedicated to the female needs than the broadbrush urologist.
I am disappointed you were unable to help me find this solution and feel your service is too superficial for my needs. I think £26 is too much to pay after solve the problem for myself!
