My mother seems to be getting recurring UTIs - she told me of new symptoms today and she just had a one-week course of antibiotics 3 weeks ago that had appeared to cure it - I think it was Ceftin. About a couple months ago she also had a UTI. It is concerning because these infections seem to make her feel bad all over and she puts off going to the doctor until it is very painful. I live long-distance so I can't drag her off to the doctor. I wonder should she be on a longer course of antibiotics than just a week? Taking something different?
