Hi there.Thank you for your question.I will be helping you out with your concerns today.
Sorry for the late response.
Would you like me to help you out with your question?
Please let me know.
The best antibiotic would depend on the result of the culture i.e. the same report which stated that you have klebsiella pneumoniae. I am pretty sure that the doctor who started the ciprofloxacin was based on the culture report.
At least one week course of ciprofloxacin was required as far as I am concerned.

If you have any specific urology question that was unanswered, please post the question again as I may have missed it.
You need to give at least 3 days for the antibiotic to work i.e. 6 doses of ciprofloxacin after which if your symptoms have not improved, then we can consider changing your antibiotic.
It is very unlikely for klebsiella to have traveled to the throat to cause a throat infection.
If you had sepsis your condition would be much worse and you would not have been able to communicate with me on here and would be in the emergency.
Sepsis causes severe symptoms such as a high grade fever, may cause drowsiness, chills among other symptoms.
A bacterial can be resistant to one of the best antibiotics around. So the best antibiotic would vary from one bug to another depending on if there is any resistance of the bug to the antibiotic or no.
Your infection seems to be mild.
Usually cipro does not cause any side effects and whatever side effects there are, are very mild.
Rarely does it cause any significant side effects.
Yes a 12 hour flight is fine while on antibiotic.
After one week the urine should be clear of klebsiella.
You have to take the antibiotic for at least five to seven days even if the test does not grown any bug.
