          Hi WFE,

          Hey, WFE almost spells wife. Be careful!

          But no, you write very well and can be easily understood. It's just that this thread has been... has gone, a bit crazy. Please don't lose your self-esteem and stop writing on account of this discussion. There are plenty of other reasons for us to lose our self-esteem and desire to write over! Trust me, I know.

          Sorry that you're having problems over there. You seem like such a nice lady. I guess some people just can't tolerate Hiprex and cranberries. Peeing our pants isn't very much fun no matter where we live.

          I wish you were able to see a SCI doctor (physiatrist) or SCI urologist over there in Norway. They're hard to find in lot of places since SCI isn't a very popular injury. Can't Leif help you find a good doctor or does he live too far away from you?

          Take care of yourself W,

          Bob.

            Hi B,
            I agree with Bob, that you write very well.
            Remember when we told you before, how well your writing comes through here and how many of us really enjoy what you have to share. There's a lot of us who have lots to say, mostly saying the same ol stuff, and not always saying it good and we's sposed to know the language! But you usually give us something that comes from an experience and perspective much different from most of us here, so you should continue to share as you have. It's good to see that you've been writing more lately. I think that many here appreciate what you write, because even tho it may come from a different place, there are many things people can relate to in many ways, and share understanding - not only re sci, but as a mother, and even a lover of cats!

            Oh, btw, I bet you've tried a lot of stuff trying to deal with UTI's. You've been sci'd a long time, so there's a lot for others to learn from your experiences.

                      No your English is very good! I am always impressed when members from other countries post here in English. (Well, non ENglish speaking countries I mean.) If I had to post in another language, I would be in a lot of trouble!

                          It could, depending on the antibiotic. Why are you taking a routine antibiotic? This is generally NOT recommended for those with SCI as it invariably leads to developing a bad resistant strain of bacteria and does not assure prevention of antibiotics. Did your urologist put you on this? Are they an expert in SCI or neurologic urology?

                            no he is not. I live in a smaller city and charlotte is the closest place to have an expert urologist for SCI's. I was having such a bad case of uti's i have had 15 in the past nine months. so you think if i were to stop taking the antibiotic and try lots of cranberry and vitamins i should be ok?

                              15 in the past 9 mo. is a lot. I think you may need to consider your cath method/technique as well, esp. if the freq. of uti's suddenly changed 9 months ago. Also, to help identify possible causes, you need to look at what other changes occurred around this time. Even if no direct cause, there may be precipitating factors. Sometimes, just changing your regular routine (not one better or worse) could contribute to making one more susceptible to infections.

                                hey chick,

                                i have been injured nine months. I have had Uti's since my accident. Not ever have i had one before i became paralyzed. my doctors and urologists say reconsider my method of cathing. I boil my catheders, store them in a clean towel covered, wipe front to back several times, and sanatize my hands. I really don't know what else i can do cathing wise. I take 1200 MG's of cranberry supplement and a 50 mg antibiotic. I did a few months ago have a 1CM size kidney stone that has been taken care of and only have had two since. What were replying to as changing my routine?? As far as what goes?
