    Hi Dee,

    Here's what Wikipedia writes about it. It appears to be a rather nasty bug.

    An excerpt:

    In UK in 2006 there were about 1000 recorded cases with 300 fatalities (30%).[citation needed]

    S. maltophilia is naturally resistant to many broad-spectrum antibiotics (including all carbapenems) and is thus often difficult to eradicate. Many strains of S. maltophilia are sensitive to co-trimoxazole and ticarcillin, though resistance has been increasing. It is not usually sensitive to piperacillin, and sensitivity to ceftazidime is variable.
    If you'd really like to read up on it:

    I hope you're able to find a SCI-aware urologist.

    Bob.

    Hiprex (also known as Methenamine Hippurate) + 1000 mg Vitamin C twice a day. This is will stop UTI's for anyone who caths naturally.

    While Methenamine drugs (Hiprex, Urex, Mandelamine, Uroqid) are popular drugs to prevent UTIs, scientific studies show that they don't have a higher rate of UTI reduction compared to placebos.

    Talking

    Hello all, I am new. Thought this would be a good place to start! What a lot of information that, despite having an injury for many years, is all new to me!

    I would like to purchase some potent vitamin C and cranberry supplements. I'm not sure the best place to obtain them? Are the local health shop products efficient enough? I definitely do want capsules, nothing water soluble. I did have some good vitamin C's but containers of thirty for £7 is not very economical when some days I want to take three! Although, if tried and tested I don't mind paying this and maybe more.

    Any recommendations? I reside in the UK by the way. Thanks and I look forward to learning from this forum.

    Any triple concentrate cranberry cranberry should do the trick. Try Ebay and look for highest mg of Cranberry.

    John (Fuentejps) are you sure changing the bags led to fewer UTIs, or was there another cause/effect relationship?

    Christy,

    Vizoquid acid (prescription) and cranberry are good regardless of plumbing!

    Cheers!
