Long story short I have recurrent bladder infections because I self cath due to having transverse myelitis (possible onset of Lupus?) When I was 12. My urologist doesn't like to treat them unless symptomatic bc he's afraid of developing resistance to them. My rheumatologist feels since I'm on immune suppressing drugs it may help to be on prophylactic antibiotics. What do I do? I get what each is saying, but given the fact that part if my inflammation could be bc of an infection it may be worth a try.
