Urine culture came back, protein urine +1, WBC urine 10-15, Bacteria Urine +1. On antibiotic for a UTI. Are these normal results just for a UTI?
Kinda, sorta: Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) DS is brand name for sulfamethoxazole/trimethoprim, an antibiotic used to treat bacterial infections.

10 days on keflex for strep b group uti, still symtomatic (bladder pressure/freq urinate/back pain)but urine clear, could this be a kidney infection?
Thoughts...: I'd want to know if the urine was clear looking or the urine culture clear. I would also look for other causes of your bladder pressure and back pain. Constipation can cause the symptoms you describe. Kidney infections can present with fever, one sided flank pain, painful urination and a positive urine culture, so what you're describing seems less likely to be that, but still possible. ...Read more

Does Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) have sulfa. I am allergic to sulfa? Which one is better for UTI Keflex or Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim)
Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) is sulfa: Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) contains a sulfonamide ("sulfa drug") called sulfamethoxazole. It needs to be avoided by people with sulfa allergy. Cephalexin (Keflex) is less reliable for UTI; many UTI bacteria are resistant to it. Ask your doctor about possible treatment with a quinolone like ciprofloxacin, levofloxacin, and others. ...Read more
