is this normal?

I got a urinary tract infection and was given some antibiotics for it. I finished the entire twice a day ten day regimen but the pain in my kidneys didn't leave completely. Finally I made time to go to the walk iin clinic and ws told the infection never completely left and was given a different type of antibiotics. I have been on these antibiotics for five days now. Is it normal to still have pain? It hasn't even gotten to be any less severe.

  • I would call the doctor and ask them what is normal. They would be able to better direct you as to whether your new antibiotics are working. My mom had a similar situation and it turned out that the her body just like rejected the antibiotic, like I don't really know how to describe it other than rejected. She had to try a third kind, before it worked.

  • Drink lots of water and cranberry juice (not cranberry juice cocktail...the actual juice). It'll help clear everything out. Kidney infections can be hard to get rid of...especially if you've developed a tolerance for the antibiotics.

  • My question would be "Are the doctors sure it's a urinary tract infection".

    If you're in pain, call the doctor back.
