Thanks for your query on HCM.
It is not quirlte common to have urine infection with pneumoniae. But your all symptoms are suggestive of Urinary Tract Infection (UTI). This can happen after surgery. Can be due to poor hygiene or pre existing infdction.
So better to get done culture and sensitivity and start antibiotics accordingly.
By doing culture and sensitivity, we can get information about drug resistance.
So start antibiotics according to sensitivity, drink plenty of fluids and keep hygiene of private parts.
