Sounds like an infection to me too. If thats the case the antibotics should do the trick, but it may take a day or 2 to work. How is Rick feeling this morning? Certainly if the pain continues to be severe, and he has a rise in temperature; you should contact your doctor immediately. I took my dad to the ER for his bladder infection because his doctor was unavailable, and the resident physician gave him an antibiotic which worked pretty quickly.
I hope rick is feeling better. Please keep us informed.
