Hi,

You mentioned the pain has been there from 3rd May and that you used medications (antibiotics) for 5 days. How long ago was the medications started?

The urine reports were done recently couple of days ago. Are the tests performed after the course of antibiotics?

Awaiting answers to these questions.

Yes that's correct doctor.

3-Feb: Pain started
4-6 Feb: Used Norfloxacin 6 tabs for 3 days (from local medical shop)
9-13 Feb: Used Cefixime, Nitrofurantoin and Flavoxate twice daily for 5 days (as per online doctor's advice)
17 Feb: Urine sample given

As mentioned, the pain is almost gone, but that slight discomfort is still there. It's not completely back to normal. I am also feeling some sharp throat pain on left side for last 4 days. Not sure if this is related, but wanted to tell you.

Thanks for asking details. Look forward to hearing from you.

Brief Answer:
Infection seems to be persisting...

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

So as per the details, the latest urine tests were done, 4 days after antibiotic course and it still reveals presence of few puss cells (WBC) and the culture revealed Klebsiella oxytoca. It implies that you still have residual urinary tract infection.

As you also have some discomfort persisting, I think you need another course of antibiotic. This time however you should be treated with antibiotics that are sensitive to the culture report. I will suggest you meet your treating doctor with the culture sensitive report and start appropriate antibiotic.

In the meanwhile, drink plenty of water. Avoid unprotected intercourse and maintain good hygeine.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarifications.
