To Your Good Health: Some hygiene suggestions when facing recurrent UTIs

Lockhaven Express - 03-23


DEAR DR. ROACH: I’m asking on behalf of my mother, who will be 80 in August. She recently had breast cancer. Her recovery was slow. She had only one chemotherapy treatment; she couldn’t handle any more, and declined radiation. In May 2016, she was hospitalized for a week due to dehydration and a bladder infection. She’d been having recurring bladder infections since early 2015. She’s been in and out of the hospital several times, before and after, for two to three days, due to dehydration/bladder infection. As far as we know, her cancer has not metastasized.
