Last week I submitted a urine sample because I was having UTI symptoms. My doctor contacted me with the results and stated that the culture showed “extended spectrum Beta lactamase” and he was referring me to infectious disease control. In July of last year I was diagnosed with the same bacteria infection and I wasn't concerned because my doctor didn't warn me of the risk! I am a C4 quadriplegic and I am very concerned and worried after doing research about this type of bacteria. I believe that the indwelling catheter is the culprit. Has anyone else had this type of infection and I would greatly appreciate any advice one might have?
