Biochemical Test For Ecoli
Just had a follow up urinalysis after ecoli infection because im still in pain. new test says i have "morganella morganii" 10^8 clinically insignifica?

Most people recover completely and rapidly, with or without kidney involvement. Good luck! ...Read more

Ecoli UTI test of today showed only few bacteries, no blood, while im taking antibiotics (5days) but im having worse strong burning sensation.Wbc is 25
Need a culture: At 5 days you probably need a different antibiotic if it is getting worse. Make sure they do a culture even if the urinalysis is negative. A simple dipstick test is not enough if your having symptoms. That will give you a much better idea of what your dealing with and what antibiotics will work. ...Read more
