    Any time a surgical procedure is done inside the bladder (such as a cystoscopy, required for Botox injections) it is usually advisable to treat any colonization first. This is because instrumentation and any flushing of fluid into the bladder done during the procedure can cause the colonized urine to reflux up the ureters, causing a kidney infection. Even if the urine culture is sterile, often a single dose of antibiotic IM is given after procedures like urodynamics or cystoscopy for this reason.

    Wow they don't do that to me, only time they gave me preventative antibiotics was when they had to remove the bladder stones
