Question for you?: Is the UTI with the same/recurrent bacteria, and is the bacteria found in your urine native to the gut? If so, could you have a diverticular fistula to the bladder? Might want to check this possibility out--

Possibly: A not uncommon complication of diverticulitis is something called a colon to bladder fistula. The specific segment of infected colon just happens to be sitting on the bladder and erodes into it and causes an abnormal connection. NOT an emergency but really need to see colorectal surgeon for this. Classic symptom is unusual, it is passing gas or stool out of urethra with the urine
