You should get checked out in person. UTI's don't cause damage that take over a month to heal.

Also get tested for Mycoplasma genitalium and trichomonas if not done previously.

Burning feeling in urination can have other causes than urethritis- which seems to be a self diagnosis , which are frequently wrong. No 'damage' is done by a one time UTI. Pl see a Urologist for proper management and yes 'drink water. Hope you do well
