Hi ThereI have recently moved to the UK and have suffered from IBS & UTI's for years. My problem now is getting worse. I have bad constipation - when I say this, I refer to having no trouble going to the toilet, but not clearing my bowel properly. This then sees me in the toilet for ages trying to clean myself up. I often have a lot of mucus which sometimes spreads to my vagina. As a result, I take Norfloxacin every couple of days to prevent getting a UTI. I have followed all sorts of diets and there are days when it doesn't matter what I put in my mouth - my stools are so soft and mucusy.Does anyone else have this problem. I would love to get off the antibiotics but with my bowel being in it's present state, I am too scared as I can't bear the thought of getting a UTI. The last one I had was several years ago, but whilst the infection went away, the symptoms have still not left me.
