I have a kidney infection and started Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) on 6/5. I'm still getting fevers over 100 and this feeling of a "gurgling stomach" where my kidney is.

I have a kidney infection and started Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) on 6/5. I'm still getting fevers over 100 and this feeling of a "gurgling stomach" where my kidney is.

Need clarification : I am assuming you have pyelonephritis ( kidney tissue infection) and not simple bladder infection. How long are on Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim)? Did you get any urine and blood test. Gurgling may not be the infection. Taking some light food may help. Fever should get better in 24-48 hrs, if not reach out to your doc. Hope this helps. ...Read more

My son is 9.I took him to doctor he has low stomach pain/trobbing. He don't have kidney or bladder infection.Doctor gave him buscopan .any ideas why?

No drugs needed: I am a pediatrician in the US and we never use drugs like buscopan for belly pain in a child. I had to look it up. The most common reasons for belly pain in a 9 year old are 1. virus or too much sugar- crampy diarrhea or 2.not completely getting all the poop out. make sure you see his poops- if they are hard and he is not going every day then encourage more frequent sittings and relaxing. ...Read more
