Relapsed uti positive for klebsiella pneumonia and group b strep. All tests ok. Suggestions?

Have had a recurrent or relapsed uti that has been cultured twice and positive for klebsiella pneumonia and group b strep . Given 4 different meds for 1 week at a time ( macrobid , cipro, levaquin , augmentin and now back on cipro), gets better while on meds but returns within 2 weeks. What is the next step -- long term meds and if so which ones (allergic to sulfa drugs). Had ultrasound of kidney and all was ok. As well as test for urethra stricture-- ok. Please help--frustrated!

Welcome to HCM,

As you have got urine culture report, then go for long antibiotic medicine course which is most sensitive antibiotic against Klebsiela Pneumonia.

Take plenty of water.

Giving multiple antibiotic at a time will develop resistant against that bacteria.

Ok and bye.
