No I don't but it's funny beacuse the Nursing Home has just rang me to inform me that Mum has a UTI because she had not been drinking. Considering that Mum has nil Cognition and cannot communicate why didn't they just give her regular drinks ????? I'll have to sort them out when I go on Sunday.

Cranberry juice is good Verity for that complaint. My daughter went through a phase of having them constantly. Had to go into hospital for scans etc and they said that her bladder was similar to Irritable bowel syndrome [ only it was her bladder that was irritated]. It really made her fed up because she didn't want to go out as she wanted the loo all the time.

I haven't read of that being a side effect of Mtx but I suppose your body can react in any way to it. At least they've picked it up pre-op.

Bloody hell yes. Since being on mtx i'm the queen of UTI's just not totally convinced last one has totally gone but I've already had 4 lots of anti biotics for it. First lot they tried to give me said in big letters in patient info sheet not to take with mtx lol. Hope it's not the start of things to come for you. My symptoms are pretty grizzly XXX
