She put me on Cipro, and referred me to a urologist. At my age there’s a priority this could possibly be a symptom of a benign enlarged prostate situation. He discovered that my prostate will not be enlarged and seems wholesome , however prolonged the Cipro dose for 2 weeks extra so we could be positive we knock it out this time. He stated UTIs could be cussed, extra usually in ladies, however often in males additionally. If this doesn’t work, I could must go on a decrease dose of antibiotics long term. I’ll be performed with the present spherical in a few days, then get retested. Fingers crossed!

These days there’s a variety of speak of the disruption they will do to your good intestine micro organism, however I’ve had no points a minimum of within the brief time period.

The one different impact is a warning that Cipro has a uncommon facet impact of tendon injury, so my urologist thought it could be a good suggestion to keep away from too strenuous train. So I’ve reduce on my energy coaching and excessive depth exercises considerably throughout this era. On a optimistic be aware, I’ve nonetheless been capable of take pleasure in extra reasonable coaching, together with biking and mountaineering. Friday I rode my recumbent within the South San Jose Space, together with on the attractive Guadalupe River and Los Alamitos trails.
.I’ve seen no points from the Cipro to this point, so am wanting ahead to getting again to them full-tilt in a few days.
