Common Questions and Answers about Antibiotics for kidney infection


Avatar f tn I have an urinary infection but I'm really scared for my baby, tomorrow I'm going to the Dr for another fisit and I think he will give me antibiotics because I have back pain and under my belly hope it I'll be ok.
Avatar f tn I am hoping that I do not have to take them at all during this pregnancy as with my 8 year old I had to take them in 3rd trimester due to kidney infection and just recently my daughter had a water infection, two different antibiotics did not work for her, luckily the third cleared it up, I am worried my daughter has become immune to certain antibiotics due to me taking them in my pregnancy, it might not be that but it did put me off but it f you need them then there is nothing you can do
Avatar f tn Yup all 3 of my pregnancies I've had to take antibiotics at some point or another. Right now I'm on some for a uti I've also been on them for a sinus infection and a kidney infection during pregnancy.
Avatar n tn My girl is pregnant and was in the hospital with a kidney infection for 4 days- the gave her IV antibiotics and after her release they gave her more antibiotics to take- will these antibiotics treat the chlamydia if she was exposed? she is 6 months pregnant.
1840402 tn?1355436165 I took antibiotics awhile back for an upper respiratory infection, and baby is still doing well, highly active and everything. I know it's hard, but I do think the doctor wouldn't give you anything that was dangerous for the baby.
Avatar f tn Definitely take the antibiotics. Uti is something that needs antibiotics to cure and if it goes untreated then can develop into a kidney problem which in some cases can cause early labour. Much safer to take the meds. I've been on the same antibiotics twice during this pregnancy and am now 36+ weeks and baby is perfectly healthy.
Avatar n tn Last year I got unprotected oral off a sex worker. I went for test for G & C and both came back clean. However I still get doubts about it and anytime somethng out of the blue happens, the alarm bells start ringing. This week my wife got a letter to call her doctor to discuss something which came up in her post kidney transplant tests based on the results from the hospital.
Avatar f tn An apparent kidney infection had me down for the count. I was trying to wait until finishing the antibiotics to start up again, but I couldn't stand my shiney new Nike+ shoes going unused, so I decided to start small and work back up. Hopefully I haven't lost any ground!
Avatar f tn I have a UTI & my Dr prescribed antibiotics for it. I first noticed the infection when I got a backache, I have had kidney infection before so I knew it felt like that. I am starting my 5th day of antibiotics and had a.bad sleep last night. I woke up with my back really aching this morning (hurts to stand up for 5 mins). I am wondering if I should be worried that the antibiotics aren't working it if it's probably just the bad sleep.also, I am 28 weeks.
Avatar f tn no in doctors surgery they tested my water then it was sent off to lab been back to doctors today still in pain still got infection changed antibiotics to penicillin got to try them for a week
Avatar m tn A urine culture and sensitivity test may help determine the appropriate antibiotic for your infection. Check with your doctor to discuss the result and for proper management. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn I went to urgent care the other day because I was having really bad pain in my low back and could barely walk. The doctor said I had a Kidney infection and prescribed me antibiotics. My question is I have been taking them for 3 days now twice a day and been drinking lots of water, but my pain is still there it hasnt went away. Also when I woke up this morning I went pee and my right side hurt really bad for atleast 10 mins.
Avatar n tn If it's a kidney infection you really need to be on antibiotics. A kidney infection is serious. I almost died from one being prescribed the wrong antibiotics. My kidneys were shutting down and my lips and nails were turning blue. You should really get it checked out ASAP. It's nothing to mess around with.
Avatar n tn I have had two kidney infection's in one month . Had two course's of antibiotic's which finished 2nd one yesterday and still have pain and cloudy urine . Doc arranged scan for next week should i go back to her before scan to tell her infection still there .thankyou .
Avatar f tn Antibiotics for UTIs and kidney infections are often the same ones, so hopefully if it is a kidney infection it clears it up too. I've had a kidney infection before and it was terrible pain :/ Hope you get sorted out and feel better soon!
Avatar f tn I ended up in even more pain Saturday evening and they admitted me and finally realized it was a kidney infection. I spent from Saturday night until Wednesday afternoon. I was on iv antibiotics and iv fluids the whole time. I was discharged with instructions for modified bed rest and had to take macrobid the rest of my pregnancy to avoid it reoccurring. I ended up having my son at 35 weeks.
Avatar f tn Could this be something other than a UTI? Urine culture showed a bacterial infection. Is it common for this to take 1 or 2 courses of antibiotics to clear up?

Avatar n tn Is there anything to clear up a kidney infection without going to the doctor? I am prone to UTI and I have had 1 kidney infection before. Well I am having the same symptoms and pain again. I don't have insurance. I know I should go see the doc but I just don't have the money to. Any suggestions would be great!
Avatar m tn it sounds like a water infection you need to go to the doctors for treatment before it gets worse and causes a bad infection in the kidneys,make sure you are drinking alot of fluids to it helps to flush it away
2176548 tn?1340681417 It was than that I went to my doc's and had a urine sample done and found out I had a bad kidney infection. It is not easy for me to tell if I have an infection, cuz I am usually always in pain in my lower back due to Endo! I was put on Macrobid for 10 days. And I think the pain is subsiding now. Thank god! That did help tho!
1281752 tn?1271378313 Hello, my name is Loraine I am 19 years old in January of 2010 I was hospitalized for a kidney infection for 4 days. In two 2005 I was also hospitalized for severe right side pain then later I was diagnosed with a urine infection not a U.T.I. Just recently I have been on more antibiotics for a urine infection (my first 2nd to 3rd time) and till this day I continue to have uncomfortable pain that does not away. My concern is why do I continue to have urine infections? Is it because of my kidneys?
Avatar n tn Hi, wonder if anyone can give me some advice. I have had a bladder/kidney infection for about 4 weeks now. I am on third lot of antibiotics. First was suprax, which gave some relief for a few days, then levoxacin, now on ciproxin. I had a cytoscopy that revealed the bladder infection. I have very bad pain in sides, back, and abdomen and am on pain medication for this. I'm worried that this third course of will not work. Has anyone experience an infection that isn't clearing from antibiotics?
Avatar n tn I have had a bladder/kidney infection for about 2 months now. I have had four antibiotics.

I have very bad pain in sides, back, and abdomen and am on pain medication for this. Burning pain in urethra and frequent need to urinate. Last night I was in hospital with IV antibiotics.
4943237 tn?1428994695 Hi Poppy, To be honest, if you've not experienced any of the typical unary track symptoms along with it or even just prior, i'm really not sure if it all wouldn't more likely be related to your spine. The nausea has been going on for weeks right, so that's very possibly not connected to these new symptoms if you don't have a fever with it.
Avatar f tn Well I just found out I have a uti which I start antibiotics today. But what if it became a kidney infection. I mean ive been peeing alot since im drinking more water.
Avatar n tn Loads of sex and being unclean before and after (like not going pee or cleaning yourself up after sex) can lead to a urine infection, which if not taken care of can lead to a kidney infection. You probably had a urine infection. When it gets to your kidneys you should be running a fever and in so much pain you are physically disabled in pain. You can get some back pain from a bladder infection as well, but if it were in the kidneys you would be in extreme pain.
