Hi sir, my mom had a Kidney transplant an year ago. now a few days ago she got an infection ( E.coli ) due to which she suffered from fever . infection was sensitive to cefixime so zinacef 1.5G every 8 hours was injected for three days (still continued). now the fever n other physical conditions are fine except 80 puss cells in urine and pain in right old Kidney. Can it b that th right e puss is coming from the old failed kidney?
If there are pus cells in the urine the test to confirm infection would be urine culture and sensitivity.
It is possible that the infection is in the old kidney. A review of previous records and an ultrasound or CT scan may help.
