I used to be in the exact same situation, and have also tried the extensive antibiotic treatment but with no success. I finally decided to look for an alternative solution, and came across a site that offered a more natural method of treatment that REALLY helped me solve my chronic urinary infection. The method combines a bundle of rigid perventative rules, along with the usage of herbal medicine and change of diet. You can have a look at the site yourself, and see if it is of any value to you too: ;

Best of luck,

Bladder infections are normally treated with antibiotics. While they work most of the time, antibiotics are not selective in killing or stopping the growth of bacteria, whether it is harmful or good. They also tend to wipe off the good bacteria which may be replaced by those that are more likely to cause infections, leaving a person more vulnerable to a UTI. Some people also develop antibiotic drug resistance from not adhering to their entire course or round of antibiotics. If the infection does not respond to antibiotics anymore, it's best to consult a professional for an alternative option. There is information at about bladder problems and treatments that may be a good reference for people concerned and interested.

It's always best to keep one doctor's informed especially during cases like these so that the doctor may do something else to correct the problem. There may be other options out there that may help reverse the infection when antibiotics may no longer be sufficient. I also came across some posts on the net that may help those with similar problems. Try searching for

A bladder infection, without treatment, may get worse and spread to the kidneys causing a kidney infection. If the treatment has failed, the best course of action to take is to notify one's doctor for other options to possibly prevent the infection from affecting the kidneys. There are also some points at;_ylt=... about similar problems.
