If you had an infection and if you were taking antibiotics, alcohol diminishes their effectiveness. Ask your doctor's office or the pharmacist ( not the clerk) at Walgreens or look it up.<quoted text>
I'm getting better. I probably shouldn't mix prescription drugs with alcohol.
Once I had a bladder infection that worked its way up to my kidneys. It was incredibly painful. I didn't know it at the time, but I can tell you now that a kidney infection hurts a helluva a lot more than having a baby without drugs and the infection lasts longer.
As a guy you really don't want to be catheterized either. Having a Foley put in is no fun. Look that up too.
What Mimi and I are trying to tell you is that you described something that should be taken seriously. You are not a super-hero ,invulnerable tough guy nor do you have a good in-house support system to take care of you if it turns very bad.
Talk to your doc. Please.Tell him a couple of old lady friends of yours have been riding you about it (Sorry, Mimi) If the doc says not to worry, so be it.
