I couldn’t have sex and was left crawling round my house in agony with a UTI 0 145

A YOUNG woman was left unable to have sex and reduced to crawling around her home due to agonising pain.

Megan Pate said she felt like she was “weeing glass” for two years with a chronic UTI.

The 29-year-old said it started when she had horrendous bladder pain while on a shift as a nurse in July 2018.

Since then she has been forced to spend £16,000 having her bladder lasered.

When the pain first started she was given antibiotics, but was admitted to hospital when it got worse.

She was diagnosed with painful bladder syndrome, a chronic condition causing bladder pressure and pain.

But treatment failed to improve her pain and in April 2020 it became so bad that Megan had to walk hunched over because of her agony and started to become housebound.

She sought private care and was diagnosed with a chronic UTI by a specialist in London in June 2020, and started taking long term antibiotics.

After nothing changed, and inspired by Marnie Simpson, from Geordie Shore, she took the plunge to travel to Istanbul, Turkey, in August 2021.

She had intensive surgery to burn away the infected issues in her bladder and has now been put on antibiotics that are starting to improve her condition.

Megan, a nurse, from Newcastle, Tyne and Wear, said: “It felt like I was passing blades of glass when I went to the loo.

“For the last two years I’ve had to crawl around my house because it’s too painful to walk.

“I can’t even share a bed or sofa with my partner, Jonny, 29, because I can feel the slightest shift in my bladder.

“We couldn’t have sex and even now I’m really wary in case it causes infection.

“It’s taken so long just to get to this point but I’m just looking forward to getting my life back.”

In August 2021 Megan flew out to Istanbul, Turkey, and underwent a bladder fulguration – a procedure to destroy abnormal growths or tissue.

“He told me my bladder was full of infected tissue so he had to burn it all off,” she said.

“It was so bad no antibiotics would have ever have helped.”

After suffering nine infections since the operation, Megan is now starting to see massive benefits.

“I’m not in excruciating pain everyday anymore,” she said.

“I have more energy and I can walk straighter because the pain is less.

Lensa AI app could be used to create erotica or porn 0 45

In recent days, the Lensa app, a service that uses a neural network to create drawn portraits, has gone viral. To generate drawings, you have to upload 10 to 20 of your portrait photos to the app, from which the program will generate an avatar. But the app has proven easy to trick so that it creates soft porn.

Internet users say that if you upload topless photos to Lensa, the app disables the NSFW filter and generates nudes. 

In general, the idea of uploading your photos to a questionable app seems bad to many. The owners of the service assure that users’ photos are deleted after 24 hours, but it is impossible to check whether this is true. In addition, such services have repeatedly allowed leaks of users’ personal data.

The Lensa application is a SaaS product of Russian developers Prisma Labs. This is especially disturbing for the residents of Ukraine, where the application has also gone viral: Ukrainian journalists urge citizens not to give their personal data to Russians, because considering the work of Russian special services, no one can guarantee a sufficient level of security when using programs written by the enemy. To use Lensa, each user has to accept the rules – to agree to the training of the neural network in order for it to work more correctly. Photos go to Google Cloud Platform or Amazon Web Services cloud storage – and, according to the developers, are deleted from there in 24 hours after being processed in Lensa. 

Lensa’s creators assure that users remain anonymous. The app doesn’t specifically ask them for access to metadata such as geolocation. However, the metadata that identifies the user can be linked to the photo that the person uploads to the app. But the Lensa team promises that photos are cleared of metadata before they are saved to Lensa systems.For now, Lensa AI is available for private use, although it may well offer its services to corporations. To do so, they will need B2B SaaS marketing.
