Thanks for your query.
I think as culture was done sensitivity test should have been done. Start the sensitive antibiotics among them with lowest MIC (minimum inhibitory concentration). Usually Klebsiella is a notorious organism because of increasing drug resistance. Carbepenem group of drugs are the choice for klebsiella like imipenem, meropenem or ertapenem. These are injectables. Among the oral only drug is feropenem. But you should start as per your sensitivity report. I think with proper treatment you will be cured.
Thank you.
