Thank you all for the advice, it is most appreciated.
Veeka, kidney infections can have very serious consequences, even causing permanent damage to the kidney's so it would be wise for you to get retested to make sure the infection is gone. If you still have it then maybe the doctor can prescribe something more tolerable for you.
Too, sometimes pain in the abdominal region can seem like an infection in one area, but since all those organs are in such close proximity, it can be any one or the other causing the problem. The doctor was convinced I had a bladder infection, since some of the symptoms were alike but I didn't, he was wrong. I've had this problem before where they thought I had a UTI but it was bowel inflammation instead.
Good luck and hope you feel better soon.
