I just found that I have a strep infection in my urine and I had already been put on cipro and now they want to add penicillan. I have had a history of UTI's in the past and now again/ I had a rectocele operation in 2012 and a bladder lift in late 2011, I also had a attempted ablation in 2012 with no success. I had open heart surgery in 2004, double by pass but doc found that it had failed and grew new vessels. I am now experiencing a burning in my stomach when I eat, it came on after using the cipro, so not sure if it is causing it or not, I am also very tired, and sweat profusely when I exert myself. I am 70 and understand there is an 8% fatality from this condition, now I am scared, with all my other maladies, am I at risk.
