See doctor: Yes, you can have both= different germs and different systems being infected. While UTI symptoms can go away, it does not mean the UTI went away. Your heart surgery history puts you at higher risk for getting heart infections from infections elsewhere in your body and usually needs antibiotics to prevent that.
