kidney infection
hi i have been suffering with a kidney infection for the past month. first i was put on drink form antibiotic which didn't work as it wasn't strong enough.
so then i was put on some pill form for 5 days. well anyway it seemed to work but then after a few days it came back.
so then i was put on a weeks course and finished earlier today with no sign of improvement!
so im wondering what could be going on?
i mean surly the doctor cant put me on more pills right? they just don't work!

Re: kidney infection
It depends on type of antibiotic they have you on. They might give you stronger one or put you on iv antibiotics.
Also will want to find if there is something causing recurring infection. ( such as kidney stones)
Suggest contacting Dr & maybe see urologist.

Good luck. Hope you get some relief.

Re: kidney infection
ive had really strong antibiotics i will have to go back next week sometime.
i think a scan will be best next.

Re: kidney infection
They need to do a urine culture to see exactly the type of bacteria is causing it so they can then prescribe the proper antibiotic. I am in the same boat so you have my sympathy.
