Dr. Jovita Anyanwu answered

Specializes in Internal Medicine

Recurrence of UTI 2 weeks after treatment require evaluation. Pain in the back may be associated with infection in the kidney or kidney stone or unrelated to the bladder infection. Consideration may include imaging studies to evaluate for anatomical etiology of the recurrence.
