I posted about UTI pain over the weekend . . . thanks for your suggestions there . . . need more advice.
I went to Urgent Care on Sunday. The quick test said that I had a UTI. I was given Macrobid and told that the sample would go to the lab to make sure that the Macrobid was the right med.
Fast Forward to today . . . it is feeling like it is getting worse! Ughhh! I called the urgent care and asked if they had the labs back. No record. They gave me the name of the lab that they send their stuff to. No record of sample sent.
They started in with "If you are still having problems, then you need to get in touch with your primary care physician." To which I said, "They will need those labs to know what to put me on." They said they would call back in an hour.
I have a feeling that they trashed my sample instead of sending it in, and I am pissed. If I do a new sample now, it will take another 2-3 days to get it back, and it may not be accurate anymore because of the Macrobid!
I can't see my primary today because I am 45 minutes away, and I would need to arrange an appt and childcare in advance. Do I just go to urgent care again? I feel like I am being dumped.
What would you do?

Call your PCP and see what they suggest. (I know it's a bit of a cop out answer.) If the macrobid isn't the right med, you should still culture + even if you use today's pee. DH had a bladder stone for almost a year - they though he had an enlarged prostrate. He had urgency and discomfort and couldn't empty fully. It may not be a UTI.
