Just had a follow up urinalysis after ecoli infection because im still in pain. new test says i have "morganella morganii" 10^8 clinically insignifica?

More info needed: Morganella can cause kidney stones (struvite crystals). If the organism was found simultaneously with the original urine culture, it is possible that there may be a more complicated infection associated with a ureteral obstruction. Though this would present with fever and persistent unilateral pain. In that case, just using antibiotics will not resolve the infection. Further tests may be neede ...Read more

Urine is OK: You are only giving partial information about your urinalysis. You have very few red and white blood cells in your urine which is probably of no consequence. Mucous in the urine is also not significant. ...Read more

After a 4 month ecoli uti, i now have weird tickling? Sensation in my urethra and very tiny traces of blood on urine test strip?

Repeat culture: First, you should not have a UTI for 4 months. If you have been properly cultured and treated the UTI should resolve.

Pain in both ureters (not urethera ) Can bladder infection cause this? Or does it mean my kidney is infected also? Test came back pos for ecoli.

Pain in both ureters (not urethera )
Can bladder infection cause this? Or does it mean my kidney is infected also? Test came back pos for ecoli.

UTI: I don't know how you can tell if pain is originating in your ureters. If you have flank pain (back pain just below the ribcage), you could have kidney as well as bladder infection. E. coli is the most common cause of all UTI in women. Tell your doctor about all symptoms and follew her treatment advice. Most people recover completely and rapidly, with or without kidney involvement. Good luck! ...Read more

Are there strains of E.coli that are present in the vagina? Swab test came back as positive for ecoli, and I have thick yellow discharge with odour.

See MD: Many types of bacteria make up the vaginal ecology. E coli is a normally found in the gut but certainly can cross contaminate the vagina. In multiple tests, many asymptomatic women are found with positive vaginal cultures for E coli, GBS and Staph. Since you have a malodorous discharge, antibiotics are indicated. See your Ob/Gyn. ...Read more

Ecoli UTI test of today showed only few bacteries, no blood, while im taking antibiotics (5days) but im having worse strong burning sensation.Wbc is 25

Need a culture: At 5 days you probably need a different antibiotic if it is getting worse. Make sure they do a culture even if the urinalysis is negative. A simple dipstick test is not enough if your having symptoms. That will give you a much better idea of what your dealing with and what antibiotics will work. ...Read more
