See below: Recovery from a uti, or for that matter any self-limiting illness, is dependent on many factors: age, severity of the infection, effectiveness of treatment, associated co-morbidities and other chronic conditions, your overall health pre-uti, attitude, diet, etc. All of which vary from individual to individual. Recovery from a kidney infection vs simple bladder infection will take much longer.
A 48-year-old member asked:

What to take for a UTI and for how long?

1 doctor answer4 doctors weighed in
Dr. Luis Villaplana
Internal Medicine 35 years experience
The answer depends: On duration of symptoms, what symptoms are you having, and the appearance of your urine sample either under the microscope or in an automated urine test strip. Typically, it also depends on the bacteria being treated, as well as how complicated the location of the infection is(bladder, urethra, tracts/ureters or kidney, as well as the actual antibiotic being used(5-10-14-21 days).
