Eric, Did you get the e-mail I sent? For the benefit of the rest of the board, I'll say it again here: Basically, don't panic, just make an appointment with the doctor right away! The doctor can easily detect any infection with a simple urine test and prescribe antibiotics which should clear it right up, with no lasting ill effects. In the meantime, drink lots of water to flush bacteria out of the bladder, and citrus juices (cranberry juice especially) are also good because the acidity will restrain bacterial growth. Feel free to e-mail me at if you have more questions, but really a simple trip to the doctor should be all that is needed!
