I have problems urinating, it comes out in drops and burns

Customer Question

I have problems urinating, it comes out in drops and burns and I have problems with intercourse. I have had 2 cystoscope' sand had my urethra stretched. My gynaecologist is rude and when I called him from A & E because I could not urinate he got angry. I'm on Keflex & betmiga but no joy. Can you help me?

Hello

Was the urine cultured

If so, what was the bug

In other words why are you on antibiotics.

This sounds like there is more to this than infection, is that correct?

I suggest that the correct physical therapy is needed here.

Pelvic pain syndromes are difficult to treat, and they have been trying to address this.

If it is recurrent infections, you need to change the entire internal environment.

Vegetarian diet.

Massive probiotics daily

Rephresh daily, which is a vaginal protbiotic.

Stress reduction.

Well all tests done so far were clear.
I had scans of the pelvic area and kidneys. All clear. They thought it could be inter cystitis. I've been I. Keflex for 2 months and no difference. I'm at my wits end. I want to see someone that can actually help me. Do I need to see 2 consultants or just one?
So u think eating veg will help?
But my urine is dripping out, what do I do about this?
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 9 months ago.

Please read my question above carefully.

The physical therapy will help with incontinence.

That doctor will be an MD of PM&R, physical medicine and rehabilitation.

Clearly this is none infectious, so that is important.

I suggest that for medicine you see a doctor trained in evidence based natural treatments.

Those doctors can be found here

Please can you give me the exact names of the products I need to buy?
Some probiotics can be made especially high probiotics.
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 9 months ago.

I can not give you specific brands as a recommendation, but the reprhesh for the vagina is a brand, any pharmacy.

An example of a good oral probiotic is garden of life women's.

It has 85 billion bacteria per capsule.
