Have kidney infection and UTI, sepsis. What can help?

A week ago I went to urgent care And my urine was positive for kidney and urinary tract infection, both blood and pus were in my urine. I now have been on antibiotics since but the side and back pain has not gone away. I January I had a horrible kidney infection and turned into sepsis. Since then every month I have been getting them, but only without fever, but all other symptoms. What is going on with me, is this just a regular kidney infection or could it be more, should I go to hospital? Please help

you have not mentioned your age, if u have Diabetes?
Getting recurrent urine infection is not a regular kidney infection.
First need to look for any organic cause for urine infection by doing sonography, or CT scan .
Also further tests like urine culture, RFT, blood sugar level are required.
If you are elderly or diabetic you may not get fever during infection.
Antibiotics has to begiven based on urine culture report and for long duration.
If there is not any organic pathology long term antibiotic prophylaxis needs to be considered.
But everything above has to be done only in consultation with your doctor.
Take care
