My husband is 36 years old - he recently began complaining of a frequent need to urinate (it has been going on for 3-4 weeks). I automatically thought UTI. I finally talked him into going to the ER - which was a waste of time - but, they did an urinalysis and ruled out an infection. He then went to an urologist and had cat scans of his abdomen and pelvic area. Everything came back normal. The doctor then examined him using a scope (not sure of the name of the procedure) and that came back normal. So, it was again thought that it must be an infection but he is not responding to the antibiotics (Cipro).
I'm greatly concerned (as well as my husband - I now know where the expression "worry yourself to death" comes from) and was wondering if anyone has had a similar situation or has any advice. We don't know where to procede from here - second opinion?
Thank you for your help.
