I am a 21 year old female who has had a urinary tract infection for 2 months now. I have been on multiple antibiotics including oral, and intravenous. The list is as follows: Norfloxacin (they found out the bacteria was resistant to this), Apo-cefprozil, Nitrofurantoin - that was what I had tried for oral antibiotics.
The nasty little bacteria that won't die is called klebsiella, they've found it in every single culture they've done of my urine. So they decided it was time for a drastic measure: IV antibiotics. I was on Ertapenem for 7 days intravenously, and that did not work at all.
Now my family doctor has prescribed me 30 days worth of "Apo-Sulfatrim DS 800&160 mg". It has been a week since I have been taking this antibiotic and not only are the symptoms still occuring, but my entire left flank is in pain, and sore to the touch.
Should I continue with this antibiotic? Or stop and make an appointment to try something else?
I'm very worried about the pain in my left side.
Any advice would be extremely helpful.
