No kidney pain since starting antibiotics for bronchitis

I have not had any kidney pain since last Tuesday, when I began Bactrim for 7 days. I have already been on macrobid since Nov. 13 and had 1 IV dose of gentimicin or floxin on Friday. I guess this flu with bronchitis treatment has allowed me to attack my Kidney infection with some strong meds. DH thinks it was gentimicin and I think it was floxin. I am going to have to get my records to find out for sure. I am going to try to call my Uro and see if I can get a long term bactrim Rx from him.

HHHMMMMM is all I can say.  I have found the same thing happen AND also when I go onto an anti-inflammatory I usually would pass a stone within a few weeks.  And, interesting to note that since I'm on one for 1.5yrs straight for ankle problem, I am pain free and I have passed anything big enough to show up.  My last event was about a week long but pretty uneventful in the world of stones on a scale of 1-10 it was a 4 I'd say.

So antibiotics and NSAID's make me wonder.
