    Hi there,

    So very sorry you're having a lot of pain. I have just finished 2 rounds of antibiotics for an UTI and my doctor told me to come back, if I am still in pain. And I am - still in lots of pain, so I'm going back to see her. So If I were you, I would go back if you are in a lot of pain. You just might need more meds to help. Sure hope you're feeling better soon.

      I have an really bad kidney infection and I was given antibiotics, d the pain did not go away. I went back the doctors and she sent me to A& E at Wythenshawe Hospital. They have kept me in and put me on a drip.

      Hi tracey128

      It sounds like a bad through of the dice as come your way but I'm sure your in the best place now. At least the Doctor realised quickly it was beond her knowledge to deal with it and sent you to the hospital.

      I hope you recover quickly let us know how you go on, as a matter of interest though what have they put you on drip wise.
