A lifetime of UTI's

by Jodi
(Alabama)

I'm not sure how early my problems began but I had to have the first surgery st age 6. I was told that my bladder stem needed to be stretched. I had a few more UTI's in childhood but when I became sexually active they became more frequent. At age 19 I had to have my bladder stem stretched again and this time I had to have pollups removed by cauterization. This was very painful to recover from. I am now 41 and the UTI's are harder to treat now than ever before. For years I was good at
treating them without antibiotics. But now they quickly make me very ill. The painful and frequent urination is also no accompanied by Chills dizziness and severe leg pain.
