Severe pain on right side. Diagnosed renal infection, prescribed tavanic. RBC high. What does it indicate?

Hello, I went to the er 2 months ago from severe pain in my right side from the back radiating to my side. A ct scan was done and revealed that all my ut is normal and no renal stones or any form of defects. I was told I had renal infection and was given tavanic. Two days ago I did a urine test and it showed that there was 12-15 rbc ... I don t drink water ...may be a glass for a day. What does that value indicate knowing that I have no symptoms besides occasional mild pain on my right side.

Hi ,
Exactly where is the pain is it in loin region or in spinal region.?If it is in spinal region it suggests radiculopathy. 10-15 rbc is not normal it indicates hematuria , since Ct abdomen is normal that rules out renal, bladder lesion which can produce hematuria i. Other possibile causes are menstrual cycle bleeding.Need to rule out bleeding diathesis secondary to low platelet count ,prolonged PT, Clotting time You need to confirm by doing these tests.Meantime drink plenty of water
