Thanks for replying! No I have an appointment in 2 weeks to make sure everthing cleared up I dont know why my doctor is having me wait 2 weeks after treatment. Im glad im urinating more frequent now but my lower abdomen is still swollen im hoping it naturally clears up. I didnt experience the frequent urination till the day after finishing the metronidazole.

Keep us posted

If you feel you can not wait 2 weeks call the doctor sooner, also you can ask to be put on a cancellation list.
