The doctor confirmed it last night; I do indeed have a urinary tract infection. Yeah me! :P She put me on some anti-bacterial drug for 5 days/2 times a day. Unfortunately, it really screws up my med taking schedule b/c it can only be taken 2 hours before or 6 hours after iron and multi-vitamins. But, to clear it up, I'll deal. I'm telling you, that was some of the worst pain I've ever felt! Not as serious as the post-surgery pain, but dang, was that rough! And, there was so much blood, I swear, I started thinking I was bleeding internally from something else! Thankfully, after the 2 pills I've taken, I'm doing much, much better! I'm just so glad the meds worked that quickly! Oh, and the doc did recommend 100% cranberry juice, and b/c of it being 100% cranberry, the sugar wasn't all that bad, 9 grams in 8 oz. So, I diluted 4 oz. w/ water and drank away. Not my choice of yummy, but if it will help, I'll drink it! Thanks for your well wishes and suggestions! Have a great weekend all!
