Good evening, I am Dr Ruff, thank you for contacting us today.
Please can I ask if you are male or female?
Hello there, thank you for your response.
With a recurrent UTI the first important thing is to ensure that this has been cultured, and therefore find out what the bacteria is sensitive to or if there is any known resistance. Otherwise you will be left with an untreated infection.
A normal Ultrasound scan is reassuring. You should also get a blood test to check that your kidney function is not compromised, as in recurrence sometimes this can be chronic urinary reflux which over time can also affect the function of the kidneys. Getting your urine dipped for protein is also a useful test.
Following on from this if this is continuing and it is suspected you are having recurrent UTIs, then I would suggest a Antibiotic as prophylaxis, therefore you take it daily for 3 months as well as a arrange a Cystoscopy so that your bladder and urinary tract can be visualised. This can be done by a Urologist.
I hope this is of some help to you, please feel free to ask any further questions.
Sorry for the delay in my response. I am not certain from what you have said about the cause to this sensation. And therefore without examination I am uncertain of what to suggest. It would however be worth revisiting this if it hasn't improved.
