Thank you for the query.

It is possible that your infection were just a symptom of some other condition. It is also possible that the antibiotic was not completely effective and some bacteria were left in the urinary bladder.

If there were a blood in the urine (I assume that urine analysis were done before antibiotic therapy), prostate problem or even urinary bladder cancer can cause your symptom. Prostate enlargement gives weak, intermittent urine stream, frequent urinating. Urinary bladder cancer can give blood in urine as the first symptom.

Increased glucose level in the blood (diabetes) causes sugar presence in the urine. This can be the reason of recurring or hard to treat infections.

Urinary tract stones could also cause your symptoms. The stone can be present in the urinary bladder now.

I suggest you to have urine analysis repeated and urine culture test done. This will allow to tell if there is an infection, which bacteria is causing it and what is the best antibiotic.
In case of blood in the urine, you should visit urologist.

In a meanwhile you should drink plenty of mineral water and use cranberries supplements. Try to increase urinating frequency (it helps remove the bacteria). Hot bath can help with the pain.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.
