As the urine culture is Positive with the growth of E.Coli bacteria it is suggestive of urinary tract infection and this is the cause of frequent urination and pain. But i think colony count is 100000/mL.
So continue amikacin injections as advised by your doctor and nothing to worry and be in follow up with your doctor.
