Dear Prof.Dr. Rajan Iyer,

Was your sister already taking an antibiotic? If yes, this result is not unexpected. However, if the symptoms persist, she should repeat an urine culture to try to isolate the bacteria. Until then, if she still has symptoms, she should drink a lot of water and start antibiotic treatment, according with the patterns of sensitivity to antibiotics of your region. For that it would be useful to visit your family clinician. Hope I answered your query. If you do no have any further questions, please accept this answer.
