I had a heart attack two months back, for which I was treated in the hospital. But since I came back home, I have been suffering from a urinary tract infection. I have tried three courses of medication, but the infection is just not going away. I am always wetting my pants, and it is becoming very embarrassing. What else can I try?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Frequent micturition with incontinence is very much suggestive of urinary tract infection (UTI).
I need to know whether you were catheterized during treatment for heart attack. This can be a catheter-related UTI. Another possibility after a recent hospitalization could be hospital-acquired UTI.

If the infection is not clearing even after three courses of antibiotics, then it is best to do the following investigations:
Based on the urine culture report, appropriate antibiotics should help to cure your condition. Ultrasonography helps to rule out any obvious abnormality that got missed in physical examination.
