E Coli In Bloodstream Symptoms
Can e-coli bacteria which is directly entering the bloodstream by a razor blade cause an enlarged testicle or an intestinal abscess? Thank you.
No: Not by itself. E coli enter your bloodstream every time you pass stool. There needs to be some other reason for you to have infections at these other places.
I had a bladder washout for trapped e coli but I still have the same symptoms. Why hasn't it worked?
Unusual treatment: Bacteria only get trapped in bladder if they are embedded in bladder stones, there is a narrow neck bladder diverticulum or you had bladder enlargement surgery resulting in xs mucus production within bladder so bacteria can hide & multiply. Bladder symptoms r cured by eliminating infection with antibiotics, or meds or procedure to facilitate bladder emptying.? Get 2nd opinion. C a good urologist.See 2 more doctor answers

Does anyone know how long the e. Coli 0157 bacteria is present in a child once the symptoms have resolved?
About >=5-10 days.: Fluid replacement and blood pressure support may be necessary to prevent death from dehydration, most victims recover without treatment in five to 10 days. Treatment with antibiotics can cause kidney problems. Antidiarrheals, like loperamide (imodium), should also be avoided as they may prolong the infection. Hemolytic-uremic syndrome is a life-threatening condition needing long term follow-up.

We both have been faithfull so if e.Coli may cause pid, does my partner also have to be treated? He has no symptoms.
No: This is normal body flora. Be sure you understand why your physician believes this is the infectious organism, and get another opinion if you have any concerns.
