    c/7 incomplete 20 YR POST IN/OUT CATH

    I had bad smelling pee and was hurting bad. This was Monday. Took sample Dr Tuesday and put me on cipro. After 20 years not felt like this, when my bladder gets full it hurts, I start sweating, getting AD really bad. If its not a infection what could it be? Stones? Thanks Brad

    Did you get a culture and sensitivity test (C&S) for your urine before you started taking the Cipro? If so, then you need to check today with your physician's office to be sure that Cipro is the correct drug. If not, and you are likely not on the right antibiotic for this bug, as symptoms should subside within 48 hours of starting the correct antibiotic. Call your physician's office back and report that your symptoms are not better. Always get a C&S done for suspected UTI before starting any antibiotic. If your AD is really bad, ask the urologist for a short term prescription for B&O suppositories. This can help with the AD being caused by bladder spasm.

    When did you last have urodynamics?

    I had similar symptoms to yours i.e. waking up drenched with sweat and spasms that were out of control. At first thought it was a UTI but after a week of antibiotics there was no change. Finally went to my GP and he had a cat scan done which showed that a kidney stone was stuck in my ureter. Had surgery the next day after that no more night sweats and spasms were back to their normal occurrences.
