Dear friend, welcome to HCM.
the pain is obviously due to UTI/ cystitis.
pl. see if the klebsiella was not ESBL class, which is usually resistant one. was it sensitive to amikacin?
what are your other reports saying?
could you pl. post them , so that i will get a better idea about your proble.
sometimes culture may not grow bugs , even if infection persists. did you have an ultrasound of kidney, ureter, bladdder/ MRI mentioned it?
in consultation of your treating doctor,pl. take urinary analgesics like phenazopyridine, urinary alkalinizers, consider prolongedor changed antibiotic regime according to culture.
a detailed description, age , other medical problems, reports etc , will help if posted online.
take care and keep me posted on the progress.
I would be glad to assist.
