Will vary.: Kidney infections are serious and require prompt treatment with the right antibiotic. Flank pain is the most common symptom and can range from mild flank discomfort to severe flank pain with fever, nausea, and vomiting. If you think you have a kidney infection, see your physician as soon as you can for evaluation and urine culture.

No specific time: Length of pain depends on how bad the infection is and how good your immune system is. It also depends on how sensitive the infection is to the antibiotics and how soon you start the antibiotics. The faster it gets treated or the milder the infection, the faster the pain goes away.
