Please repost: Please repost and explain the relationship in your thinking between lumbar nerve root damage and a urinary tract infection. I don't see the connection. Also, please include the answer you got to your question about ciprofloxacin from the doctor who prescribed the antibiotic; or, if you did not ask your doctor, please state why not.
