Brief Answer: Take appropriate antibiotic as per culture report.

Since there was no improvement in your symptoms culture was done which revealed that your infection is due to E-Coli resistant to both these drugs .This is reason for not getting the expected results.

Brief Answer: Pain could be due to Stone in the kidney Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for follow up. Pain in lower back and sides could be due to stone in the kidney . Please consult qualified Urologist and get Ultrasound scanning of the abdomen to rule out the same. In the meanwhile continue taking antibiotics in addition to pain killers like Diclofenac or Brufen twice daily. Further treatment will depend upon the finding of USG and final diagnosis, Thanks and Regards. Dr.Patil.
