    Thanks so much for your input KLD.

    My Dad's urologist is experienced with neurogenic bladder, but has been pretty slow to repeat testing for the things you suggest. If my Dad looks like he has his 3rd UTI in a row (vs. just colonization.... sometimes so hard to tell...) and it is the same...

    Urethera foleys, UTIs and instillations

    Would appreciate some input from folks who use uretheral foleys and who can give some pointers.

    My 77 year old Dad (incomplete para) is having more difficulties with aging, and is getting tired of all the daily SCI crap. Since being on home isolation since March, his physical therapy has...

    Have you been seen by an Immunologist to see if you have an Immunodeficiency that is increasing your risk of cellulitis (and if so, it could be contributing to your recurrent UTIs)?

    Recently, I had success was...

    Anything else change? New medicines? Recent illness?

    Do you take a probiotic?

    Have you tried adding some Metamicil/generic metamucil?

    Have any other things changed, like your bladder function or other SCI stuff?

    Can you try going 2x a day for a little...
