After completion of the antibiotics your urine is showing only 2-3 pus cells which is normal and it suggests that you dont have UTI. Pseudomonas growth can be because of external contamination which is quite common if the urine is not properly collected and processed. I dont think that UTI is the cause of your fever and moreover you have not complained about any urinary symptoms. Visit your physician to look for other cause of fever.
