My mother has been going through a series of urinary tract infections. A couple of weeks after the antibiotics clear up one UTI, another starts. Her logic is that if she does not drink much she does not have to go to the bathroom often. I am thinking about filling a container of water each day & explaining to her that she needs to drink all of it each day. Her doctor is thinking about putting her on some type of maintenance antibiotic because she gets so many UTI's. However I would like to try all other avenues before adding one more medication to her already long list of meds.
