Resolved Question:

Hi,
Just need your opinion about my health.
In 2013 I had (firs in my life) twice ESBL, It was weary bad, has been twice in hospital on May and then on August.
They told me to work on my immune system. So I care about my health, drink lot of water or
tea from the nettle, I also take some ayurverdic medicine for increasing my immune system.
Otherwise I’m healthy eat almost all bio products that I cook by myself, do exercises…

Now I have another problem, they find the KLEBSIELLA PNEUMONIAE in my urine.
They give me some antibiotic for it, but my question is, because I’m felling good I do not want to take the antibiotic.
It was the same previous year, the seam bacteria was diagnosed and then after taking
The medicine I got another bacteria and the third time I’ve got ESBL. That’s my fear.
Please could you give me some advice and please could you give me some info about
Instructions for prescription medication?
I am very grateful for your response

Do you have a catheter in your bladder in a daily basis?

Is there any stent on your urinary tract?

About the stent, do you mean the color of the urine?


I always have so dark yellow color in the mornings and normal


Almost without color during the day and I have no stones in the kidney.

No. A stent is a device that looks like a tube that resides in the urinary tract.

Have you seen a urologist for an evaluation with a CT scan or cystoscopy?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

 


Hi,


 


All the exams have been made last year and CT and cystoscopy was normal.


Also the doctor told me the results are normal on CT the result however


Was that the right kidney work on 34 % and the left on 66 %.


Expert:  Dr. Y. replied 3 years ago.
That is not a CT scan. That is a renal scan

Did they do a CT scan?

Hi. What additional questions do you have?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

 


Hi,


 


As I ask you before, because now I have this


KLEBSIELLA PNEUMONIAE in my urine and my fear is that if I take the
antibiotic that the result will be the same as previous year, that I got ESBL.


How could I avoid such bacteria, could you give me some help or give me some


name of the medicine, to avoid those bacteria.

Expert:  Dr. Y. replied 3 years ago.
There's nothing you can do to avoid the bacteria. Taking specific antibiotics or any antibiotic at all does not predispose you to getting ESBL.

If you keep getting during infections, then you need to see a urologist to do a full evaluation with cystoscopy and a CT scan to figure out why you keep getting these infections to prevent them from happening
