Hi there!

Though still suggestive of residual infection, an 8-10 cells/ HPF is considerably low as compared to the previous tests and suggests infection control. The antibiotics may be continued for a few more days and the tests re-performed till the infection is completely obliterated. In case the infection recurs, an antibiotic sensitivity testing may be performed. I would suggest discussing the situation and the suggested management plan in detail with her treating doctor.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
