Welcome to HCM,
After going through your history, you are having UTI (Urinary Tract Infection) and it is confirmed by Urine analysis,usually a culture of micro organisms is also done and drug sensitivity may be that report is awaited.
Norfloxacin is urinary specific antibiotic please continue it and take plenty of water and fluids.
In case sensitivity report shows organisms which are not responding to current drug your doctor will change antibiotics. Common organisms E. Coli many times resistant to the antibiotics.
If you have pain or fever a paracetamol tablet can be taken with consultation of your doctor.
You can also take cranberry juice.
In case there is recurrent infection a Ultrasound is warranted to see if there is any obstruction and in the mean time keep good personal hygiene.
Take care
Good Luck
