Hi there,
Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Hoellering and pleased to help you.
I need some more informations, please. Is your doctor certain that there is still an infection? Did he find Bacteria in your urine? Did he order an antibiogram to find out if the bacteria are sensitive against the prescribed antibiotics?
How are your symptoms now? Did they change?

HelloI am d double board certified clinical doctor.first, your urine must be cultured if this has not been done, and checked for bacterial sensitivities to various antibiotics.If there is no bacteria, this is likely another problemFor example, interstitial cystitis.Your doctor has been over treating without enough investigation.I suggest you ask for a referral to a urologist at this point. OK, so that is an initial answer….Please use reply to expert if you have further questions. When you are ready, please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent].
