So he put me on an antibiotic (Cephalexin) for per week. I felt fantastic after, however a observe up with my very own Doc later confirmed the micro organism (e-coli) was again. She put me on Cipro, and referred me to a urologist. At my age there’s a priority this might be a symptom of a benign enlarged prostate situation. He discovered that my prostate just isn’t enlarged and seems wholesome , however prolonged the Cipro dose for 2 weeks extra so we may be certain we knock it out this time. He mentioned UTIs may be cussed, extra typically in girls, however often in males additionally. If this doesn’t work, I could should go on a decrease dose of antibiotics long run. I’ll be carried out with the present spherical in a few days, then get retested. Fingers crossed!
I’m tolerating the antibiotics properly, fortunately. These days there’s a number of speak of the disruption they will do to your good intestine micro organism, however I’ve had no points no less than within the quick time period.

The one different impact is a warning that Cipro has a uncommon aspect impact of tendon injury, so my urologist thought it is perhaps a good suggestion to keep away from too strenuous train. So I’ve reduce on my power coaching and excessive depth exercises considerably throughout this era. On a constructive notice, I’ve nonetheless been capable of take pleasure in extra average coaching, together with biking and mountain climbing. Friday I rode my recumbent within the South San Jose Space, together with on the gorgeous Guadalupe River and Los Alamitos trails.
.I’ve observed no points from the Cipro thus far, so am trying ahead to getting again to them full-tilt in a few days.
