Good morning everyone. Has anyone else had recurring UTI's while on Avastin?
So far, 2 days after my treatment I develop an infection. It is not a case of needing to go to the loo frequently, I become completely incontinent, and have no control at all. Up to now, my GP has given me antibiotics which work quickly and like magic, but I don't think he is happy to do this indefinitely. The thing is, I have an appointment with my oncologist today (so am already stressed) and have woken up with what I can feel is another infection starting up. This is just 12 days after the last UTI, and I haven't even had the Avastin yet. That is not til next Friday.
Obviously I will talk to the onc today, as I know Avastin can effect the kidneys. Do you think it could have this effect on the bladder too? I can't believe that I shall have to wear an incontinent pad when I have my appointment today, when I was working full time less than a year ago!
