Bladder irritation.

I'm a 44 year old male, two weeks ago I had visible blood and painful urination. Went to the Doc who prescribed me antibiotics for 7 days and sent off a urine sample for testing. This came back negative for UTI. The antibiotics actually cleared up almost all my symptoms, frequent urination, blood and pain while urinating within a few days. Anyway I was sent to a urologist a week later who done an ultrasound which was clear and a cystoscopy which showed inflammation of my bladder consistent with an infection. My GP tells me that I can put cancer out of my head as it would have shown on either or both of those exams (still not that easy) and I am still waiting on the results of a blood test and cytology and have to have a CT Scan with Contrast at the end of the month. All standard procedure on the NHS in cases of visible haematuria in men. Anyway my problem is that now it's two weeks after the onset of the UTI and while most of the symptoms have totally gone, I still have intermittent discomfort (feels like pressure rather than pain) in my bladder region. My doc said it will go in time, but nothing I have read seems to confirm this. Has anyone else had a UTI where they have similar symptoms after finishing antibiotics? I'm increasingly getting worried....
