Pressure on lower back, warm feeling around genital area. Leukocytes found. Cause for above symptoms?

My mother has been having pressure around her lower back for about a month with some sharp pains and the family doctor first thought it was skeletal. 1 week ago he did a urine sample and found leukocytes and started treating her for a bladder infection and kidney stones . The antibiotic is almost finished and she still isn t feeling better. Today she said it feels warm around the genital area and up to the ribs. Can you help explain what s going on?

Nephrologist 's  Response
The symptoms you have described may be due to stone causing obstruction in the urinary tract.Indiscriminate use of anti-microbials is not warranted.
I suggest you get USG kidneys & bladder done.
Ensure 3-3.5 litres of liquid intake daily after obstruction has been ruled out/tackled.Once this is done then there is nothing to worry about.
Presence of pus cells in the urine in the presence of stones is a common finding & does not always suggest infection
