Pissing Glass


When I was in my thirties I suffered from recurrent bladder infections, I've not had one in an age now...until last night

  3. Ugh. UTI's are evil. I hope you're on meds and that they kick in quickly.

  4. When you start pissing blood you'll know it's bad.

  5. Sigh. Painfully familiar. I hope yours is gone quickly. Cranberry juice helps me.

  6. Get yourself to a doctor. As you are aware, you need meds.

  7. I used to have those all the time. They are extremely painful. I hope you have gotten medication for it because it can help. I'm sorry you are dealing with this but keep up the water, cranberry juice and meds! And try resting a little!

  8. As a qualified doctor, I recommend that treatment. Show us the photos or put up the audio.

  9. Not good, John. In its acute stage, and before you have chance to see a doctor, wrapping yourself (foetal position) round a not so freshly boiled, ie warm, kettle (in absence of a hot water bottle) will help relieve the worst; not much, just a little.

    Talk to Albert; felines being prone to urinary tract infections.

    All the best,
    U

  10. Ouch, ouch, ouch. Been there. Lots of fluids and cranberry juice. Does Cystopurin work on men? It works quickly. Tesco sells it. xx

  11. Is Chris still away? what a bummer you won't even have him around to nurse you

  12. I think it may help to drink lots of water & avoid relations x

  13. I can relate to how uncomfortable they make me, I can't imagine how painful it is for you guys. I had chronic UTI's while taking hormone blockers. The only thing that changed that was drinking 16 oz of water in the am before coffee or tea...haven't had one since! Feel better soon.

  14. ouch, get well soon.

  15. Yikes! I have yet to ever had one, or any major medical issues yet. Just as well, I have the feeling I won't like pain or make a good patient.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Yikes......hope you are over it quickly.

  17. Perhaps the discussion of the wayward b*ll stirred things up a bit? Sounds like you've gotten lots of good advice here, though being a nurse I rather doubt you needed it.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Not fun. My doc prescribes antibiotics.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Ouch! Not pleasant. I'm sure you're on to the meds already.... mean-while drink fluids.... unfortunately the Old Wives' remedies aren't as effective as the right pills!

    Hope you're better soon... very soon....

  20. Not good - all the best in getting it dealt with promptly.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Oh, yeah, ground glass. Sorry to hear it.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Try drinking about a spoonful of baking soda dissolved in water. UTIs are evil. Hope it clears quickly for you. -Jenn

  23. That is just awful John. Bladder infections suck. Hope you feel better soon. X

    ReplyDelete
  24. Its awful .... drink cranberry juice ( that is - if you are not on Warfarin )

    ReplyDelete
  25. For years I had bladder infection awful ! Meds and liquids.
    Feel better soon.

  27. UTIs are the absolute worst! Sorry, John. I hope you went and got medicine and are on the mend.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Ouch. Like pissing razor blades - I know only too well. My sympathies.

    While you're waiting to get to the doctor, a teaspoon of bicarb in each glass of water will help. Be warned, though, it can have a loosening effect on the digestive tract if you drink a lot, and gives you wind ....

  29. Oh dear! The only thing for it is Ural - doesn't cure it but helps with the burn. I feel for you, I've had a lot of it in my life.

  30. I am sorry John. I hope you're taking antibiotics. Drink a lot of water to flush out the ingection.

  32. Oh how horrible. Ihopeyou are on antibiotics by now. a Friend was once doubled over in pain with this and trying to cure with just Cranberry juice. I told her to get to a Doctor, she left it a few hours and by then Drs closed so ended up going to A and E to get antibiotics.
    Hope you are in less pain by now xx

  33. I think the average man has no idea how painful and debilitating some female ailments can be. We get off lightly with the odd bladder infection.

    2. I didn't ask for your opinion.

      What I stated wasn't an opinion, Nick; what I stated were facts.

      May I suggest, not least out of courtesy to John, that you air your grievances with me either via email or on my blog. To give you the chance I will dedicate a whole post to you, and only you. ;) See you there.

    4. Ursula I am too uncomfortable to care

    5. Ursula, you seem to have a knack for catching the wrong end of the stick, and I wish you would stop annoying readers with your sanctimonious shit. You didn't understand what Nick was saying, but jumped right in with your irrelevant comments. Please John, although I know you are not thinking about such relatively trivial things, could you in some way block Ursula from totally annoying the readers who really enjoy your blog and comments?

    6. Thank you, Kate.

  34. You have my sympathy. I've got a scarred kidney due to recurrent UTIs. With the last one I went from being ok to peeing what looked like beetroot juice, because of all the blood, in less than an hour. Thank goodness for the walk in centre as it was 8am on a Sunday.

  35. At the risk of incurring her sanctimonious wrath, I wonder if others are as tired of Ursula's long winded and condescending comments as I am.

      It could be worse, Camille. You could have a bladder infection. At least my "long winded and condescending comments" don't hurt.

    2. I rest my case.

    3. Camille, I've had a bellyful of those long-winded and condescending comments.

      I rarely comment...but, yes, I'm as tired of her as you are.

    5. Maybe John finds Ursula's comments interesting, but I'm completely with you on this issue. Who the hell is she that she gets to annoy all the charming people who enjoy this blog? John, if there's a reason she's welcome here, I'd like to know.

    6. Again and again I have let Ursula comment here as long as she does not get the hump with people. And again and again there seems to be developed a combative interaction with some commentators.
      This is ursula's doing , so I am deleting her posts until things calm down ( if they ever will do) , this saddens me , I've not had to do it before in over ten years blogging, but it seems I have no choice. I honestly think that Ursula is unaware of just how she comes across but the slight she feels against bloggers who have no real axe to grind against her is overblown and persecutory.
      Kate everyone is welcome here. But they have to get along and respect each other. Unfortunately , I concede that ursula's comments can be viewed as somewhat overplayed.

    7. You're a better man than I, Gunga Din. I apologize for my cranky comment (does it help excuse me that I'm trying to live in the US?). I think you're right that Ursula is tilting at windmills sometimes, and I also think we/I could show a little more compassion for our fellow humans. Thank you for your steadying influence on those of us who maybe have too much wine towards the end of the evening.

  36. I've never had one. What causes it?

    Hope you get well soon.

  38. In defense of Ursula, I found her comment today informative, enlightening, and important. I don't quite understand what the fun is in picking on her.

    But probably nobody will read this because I don't read the daily posts till night in NY, when the action has moved on. Oh well.

    1. No one is "picking on her." Some of us find her sanctimonious and lecturing. She could present her "informative" comments in a less combative way.
      Does Nick want to read an "informative" comment when Ursula tells him he seems to "labor under some misconception."?
      And she starts by saying "At the risk of John taking this down," implying that we do not want to hear her "informative" comment. We are all open to information, but not so much to her drama queen proclamations.

    2. Yep, combative drama queen proclamations.
