Anxious, the organisms are usually acquired nosocomially, but it doesn’t mean that you can’t get it somewhere else. It you didn’t get it in a hospital there is a high suspicion that there is a kidney or bladder abnormality. Another thing you should do is to have another urine MC&S done as soon as you’ve finished the Tavanic®. You have to be sure that there isn’t a single organism left otherwise you will have to continue taking the antibiotics.
It isn’t uncommon for one’s cholesterol levels to go haywire when you have a serious disease, so I would relax about it for the moment. Wait until six months after your kidney problem has been sorted out before you start worrying about the cholesterol. The debate is still open about whether eggs are bad for your cholesterol. Most experts at this stage feel that you can have as many boiled or poached eggs as you want as long as you don’t fry them or have them with bacon or sausages, etc. You will have to cut off all the fat of your meat and stay away from mutton.
Personally, if I were you I would go on taking the Lipitor®, watch my diet and forget about the whole cholesterol thing until the kidney problem has been sorted out. Good luck.
