Fighting a Bladder Infection

Dear Trudy,
My name is Enid , I am 50 years old, and I live in Puerto Rico. At the age of 24 I was diagnosed with invasive cervical cancer. Consequently I had to undergo a radical hysterectomy and radiation therapy. Approximately 6 years ago I was diagnosed with neurogenic bladder as a result of the surgery and radiation…20 years later! And regardless of how cautious I am when I self-cath, the bacteria has “colonized” my bladder. Now every 3-4 weeks (no exaggeration) I have to take intravenous antibiotics for 14 days since the ESBL e-coli bacteria has become resistant to all oral antibiotics. My doctors fear that eventually the bacteria will also become resistant to the IV antibiotics, but that there’s nothing else that they can do. They’ve suggested that I visit doctors in the U.S. but due to financial reasons and my job, this is not possible. Has anyone had a similar experience? Suggestions please. Thank you.
