NOT CSI: TMI????

















Ever been on a road trip and you have waited a little too long to pull into a rest stop? Or been too lazy at midnight to trip over the cat and go to the john?
Some people, yes, men too! Are susceptible to UTIs. You may think vigorous male-female relations are either the cause...or the cure, but in that you would not be correct.
For me, Monday had its ups and downs. The pain in my (not azz!) was somewhat excruciating at times, as you may know if you have had a UTI.
Today, however, is a new day, and I am feeling most relieved and healthful, thanks for asking....

what did Shakespeare say about the slings and arrows of old age etc etc....

Hilary said...

Oh poor you.. ditto on the Cranberry juice.. and lots of garlic. (for both of you so you don't knock Maude over with your breath) ;)

kate et jim said...

Yup - cranberry juice, cherry juice (from the health food store)- it's all good.

The garlic idea is a good one, haven't heard it used for UTI's, but I can see where it would be useful!

oh dude you have my sympathies. i had that a few months ago and it was PAINFUL!!! i'm glad you got medical attention right away and didn't do like me and wait until you couldn't keep anything down and had a fever of 103.7. glad you feel better.

Hope you feel better. Goodness the missus will have to cut off all beverages at around 7pm and make sure you get up when you have to go, put a bell around your ankle to warn the cat.

Reverend Awesome said...

Ahh. That sucks. Glad you're feeling better, soldier.
You're right it seems some people are just more susceptible to getting UTI's. I hope your urination remains pain free!

Kimberly said...

I always remember Tom Hanks in "The Green Mile" when he had a severe case of UTI I think. He made it look like the worse thing in the world.

Linda Starr said...

yes, I too was going to recommend cranberry juice.

Jay said...

Has anyone recommended cranberry juice yet? Yeah, lots of that and maybe some water.

Oh, and stay away from spicy foods and caffeine for a bit too. They make the situation worse.

Or so I've heard. ;-)

Pauline said...

oh that's nasty, hope you are feeling better now, our daughter suffers the same things, not pleasant at all.
Take care

OH MY! That is awful!!! We've had tons of experience with those around here due to Lil'Gal's urinary issues.

TmiTmiTmi...sorry everybody.....

Reverend Awesome said...

It's not TMI. Tis a common problem. It's like saying that discussing allergies is TMI.

Cheri @ Blog This Mom! said...

Poor thing.

Poor Gary, too.

i've tried them all .......
my doctor sympathetically shakes her head as she writes the Rx, and says, 'Honey, it's just a sign of aging.'

'course, I know the REAL reason.....
