I am about to pull my hair out. My 10 year old has had 7 rounds of antibiotics in the last year for recurrent UTIs. The only symptom she ever has is she'll wet the bed. Then I take her in for a urine culture, they prescribe antibiotics, it clears up for a couple months, then we start all over again.
They've lectured her about proper wiping techniques, drinking more fluids, using the bathroom more frequently, and on and on. She's been tested and passed at a urologist's. With every round of antibiotics her appetite gets worse, she's increasingly picky, she complains of stomach aches, nothing tastes good, she takes two bites and declares she's full, etc.
I know the antibiotics are destroying her gut flora. After every round I give her yogurt (we have a cow so lots of yogurt and raw milk products) and kombucha. She just finished her last prescription and I just read that yogurt doesn't have enough probiotics so I ordered some expensive probiotic drops. I'm picking them up today. But I just went in her room and she's wet the bed again.
So it's back to the doc's and I'm sure another round of abx. Ugh!!!!!!!!!! Is there any way off this treadmill? Last time I tried to treat it naturally and it went into her kidneys and she got a bad kidney infection. They were about to hospitalize her but finally decided not to. Instead they injected antibiotics into both her thighs which was an unbelievable horror for both of us.
I am so sick of the antibiotics I could scream. She's looking very pale and very thin.
Does anybody have any experience or advice for me?
