Pyelo: I am not sure what you're concerned over. If the antibiotics are working, then you need to wait until the infection is killed and hopefully you should start feeling better. If the antibiotics are not working, it usually becomes obvious within 3 days after the start of the antibiotic. If your condition is getting worse on antibiotic, you should go to the er.
