UTI and ongoing symptoms

I've been diagnosed with a UTI and I am on second day of antibiotics.

I also had a fungal infection a couple of weeks ago which was missed because lack of being able to examine me.

I'm very lucky in the awful pain that I had has already gone and I am not too bad but generally how long does it take to slow down the need to go to the loo. I've actually had a really good nights sleep and only went once but this morning I'm going a little more frequently. Am I being completely impatient and should just wait and allow recovery.

I've also been booked in for an ultra sound = the doctor that came to visit me mentioned sludge in the bladder that can cause problems. Does anyone know about this?

Hello - We hope that your infection has cleared up by now and if not you should certainly go back to your GP who might give you a repeat prescription. Definitely one day of taking antibiotics generally wont clear up an issue and thus why it is always recommended to always take the full dose and return if you are still experiencing problems.

Not sure that sludge in the urine is a technical term but it does seem to be referred to often in general chat but more specifically in connection with bladder stones. If you are looking for this information on the internet please only read information that is from a credible evidence based website such as the NHS.

We wish you well

Bladder sludge also called hypercalcinuria is a thickening of the urine with calcium salts and does not flow as normal liquid urine should.
