I’ve recently done a urine sample due to uncomfortable pain in the kidney area. The gp requested a urine sample and I have 3 mixed growth bacteria’s and my red cell count is high (urine is bright red) my red cell count is 697x10^6/L has anyone had something similar? I had already been on ciprofloxacin for 2 weeks at this point.

    Are you a male?  I think you need to see a urologist asap.   Doesn't your GP think this is serious?  I don't mean to alarm you, but bloody urine is a big deal.

    I am male. And they don’t seem to be doing much just keep giving me different antibiotics. Blood test has come back saying satisfactory.

    The doctor should be able to say what the infections are susceptible to ie which antibiotics will kill off the bacteria.  You are very much 'allowed' to ask all you wish of the doctors and I would think in your case this is more important than asking us amateurs..........

    if you have a kidney infection and this sounds likely with your back ache your doctors should be monitoring your condition really closely.  If I were you I would contact them to make sure they know your condition and you are happy with the attention you are receiving.  I would write or email a letter to your carers to make sure they know categorically your symptoms right now. Or telephone them to state that there is a letter or and email on it's way. Best wishes but do not neglect to treat your plight urgent!
