I’m 33+4 weeks pregnant, have had multiple kidney and urine infections throughout, I have two duplex kidneys so I get frequent infections, I’ve been self catheterising three times a day for the past 6 weeks since my last infection and have also been on low dose cefalexin every day since as a prophylaxis to try prevent another one. I have recently been in hospital for regular blood pressure checks and baby monitoring also because I have just started with pre-eclampsia symptoms and am going in twice a week for monitoring.
I have been in allot of pain with my back in my flank and all across my lower abdomen for months and use dighydrocodine occasionally To try help with the pain, but the flank pains worsened over past three days and I took a dilstick test at home and this showed keystones, glucose, protein, blood and leukocytes in my urine. I have a hospital appointment in two days , can I leave it till then to get checked as my mobility right now is limited and it’s painful remove about or should I get in tomorrow to the emergency doctors?
CONSIDERING THE PROBLEMS YOU HAVE BEEN HAVING ALL THROUGH OUT AND THE RECENT URINE REPORTS,YOU SHOULD NOT WAIT FIR 2 DAYS. I SUGGEST YOU SHOULD BE GOING TO THE DOCTOR AS SOON AS POSSIBLE
if presently you do not have any symptoms,then you can wait till your appointment. drink plenty of fluids and water. you should keep a watch on a your urine colour and smell.
if at all, you get any symptoms ,you should contact your emergency doctor immediately to avoid any complications during the delivery.
During pregnancy and if you are having symptoms of pre eclampsia then you need to put all these things in order as soon as possible…I strongly recommend going to the hospital tommorow in your visit appointment …otherwise you may get some negative complications …
if u are not able to go to doctors for next 2 days,its fine. but that depends on the symptoms.if the symptoms remain as they are,then dont worry.if you see any signs of deterioration,consult doctor immediately.
do not take chances
