Thanks for your question.
It is still possible after antibiotic course to have bacterial infection.
The infection may not have cleared fully.
Hence, another course of antibiotic is required.
Sometimes, bacterial resistance is common, hence a different antibiotic may be required based on urine culture result.
Another possibility is the enlarged prostate and prostate infection like prostatitis.
Hence, these possibilities should be looked at.
A longer course of antibiotic ( levofloxacin, or doxycycline) should be helpful.
Please discuss with your doctor these options.
