3 Weeks Post-op and now UTI Infection!

I'm 3 weeks (today) post op from my TAH BSO - vertical incision. My recovery has been slow but steady until this weekend. Just started feeling kind of run down and couldn't get comfortable when sitting. I'm lucky enough to be a truly pampered princess so knew I hadn't done anything too strenuous. ALso noticed that yesterday I was going to the bathroom very often. Called my Dr. this morning, went in this afternoon and after a full internal check-up(fun!), they figured out I had a urinary track infection! No fever, no pain while urinating, but definitely white blood cells in urine and no vaginal or yeast infection! ARRRGGGHHHH! I've been drinking myself silly and can't figure out how this could happen 3 weeks later!
Dr. also explored possibility that the pressure and discomfort I'm feeling when sitting could be caused by vaginal dryness since I'm not on any HRT. Been taking Soy Balance and Remifen and have noticed that the night sweats are starting to occur more and more frequently - guess I've totally used up all the stored estrogen. Dr. is exploring possibility of adding some type of vaginal "pellet" that's supposed to help the dryness. Anyone out there have any experience with these?
This is so discouraging because I've been being so good - resting a lot, drinking a lot ( cranberry juice!), walking a little more each day... Know it's just a minor bump in the road but I just want to feel well again!!
Thanks for letting me whine - know that you ladies will understand! Here's HUGS to all of you!

((((Princess))))

I'm sorry to hear about the infection

Try to also drink plenty of water! Some say that there are such trace amounts of whatever it is that helps infection in cranberry juice that it's not enough to be effective I don't know for sure..... just in case, add lots of water to your drinking menu!

You might want to wander off to the JUNGLE to check on the vaginal dryness and HRT issues.

s, sweetie! Feel better soon!
