Hey not been on here in a while but having such a hard time ...
My daughter has been suffering from recurring uti’s for 3 years she is now 8. She will get a uti every other week if she is not on a low dose of antibiotics.
We have had another bladder scan which showed she does not empty her bladder fully she keeps some liquid in. The person scanning her sent her back to the toilet twice but she still wasn’t empty.
All the doctors keep going on about is constipation. Although she may not go every day she does go most days and doesn’t struggle. I had been giving her lactulose but the doctor wants her to go every day moved on to movicol 2 sachets per day but she is now soiling herself. I feel so bad she can’t go to school doing that! Going to call the doctor tomorrow and see what they suggest? Maybe only one sachet?
She also does dribble her underwear a lot previous to the soiling the last few days.
I’m at my wits end. I don’t know what else to do, hospital say she will grow out of it? I’m sick of having to get on at her all day to drink more, go to the toilet, have you done a poo. She gets annoyed and frustrated I feel so bad for her. She also hates talking about it she is embarrassed.
The hospital do not want her to be on the low does of antibiotics as the bugs become resistant which I totally understand but if she isn’t on them she gets utis non stop! Then she is grumpy irritable, getting up at night for the toilet, wetting herself even more. The hospital don’t seem to care about these symptoms but it is so difficult to deal with.
Next app not till April.
Suppose I’m wondering if anyone is in the same boat and can offer tips
