Confusing question: You make a statement with no clear question.A general response would be that it takes time for any treatment to begin killing germs/tissue healing during the treatment process.If it persists, contact the treating physician.

Bladder Infection:: Anytime, we suspect an infection, we start a reasonable antibiotic, not waiting for culture results, as delay can do more harm. In case of uti, a dipstix urine test done in office; if abnormal, detail urine analysis, microscopy and culture ordered. Cx, sensitivity result take 48-72 hours. If different sensitivity, we change the antibiotic. Even with proper abx, it takes 2-5 days to get response.
