Pain in back side at kidneys and wave, tested CT scan results are normal, urine culture find klebsiella species. Dr prescribed ciprofloxacin. Not clear.
Back pain: Ct scan is done to look for kidney stones, however you can have UTI without having a stone. Positive urine culture confirms uti, so antibiotic is the way to go. I am not sure if the UTI though completely explains the pain. If the pain persists after completing antibiotics I would recommend you see an obgyn. ...Read more

If e.Coli is found in urine culture. Does this causes prostatitis or epididymitis or any other infections? What are the treatments for e.Coli?
Klebsiella: This is not normal. Whether it is indicative of a urinary tract infection would depend upon the number of bacteria per milliliter of urine, the repetitiveness with which it is cultured, and so on. You can have what is called asymptomatic bacteriuria in women that does not require treatment, but not in men. Best wishes. ...Read more
Self Brazilian wax if waxing strip pulled forcefully & wrongly can make heavy bleeding in urine. Kleibsella in urine culture 5 times in 6 months?
Not related: Waxing is optional, as hair removal is optional. Waxing is to remove hair which grows on the outside of the body. There is no hair at the urethra where urine comes out of the body. Thus, there should be no waxing done at the urethra and no relationship of a urine culture result to the waxing. (Unless there's an indirect relationship such as if waxing began at the same time sexual activities began) ...Read more

It is isolated in another culture and identified under the microscope or by specific chemical tests, small antibiotic discs placed hopefully slow the growth down and the best antibiotic will hopefully be determined. ...Read more
I just been diagnosis with klebsiella pneumoniae in urine, on kepflex. Can that spread to the rest of my body. I'm really nervous, I am also 22 weeks preg.
Antibiotic helps: When you have a urniary tract infection, there is the possibility that, if left untreated, it can spread up to the kidneys, causing a simultaneous kidney infection as well. However, since your doctor has put you on an antibiotic, the idea is that the medication will kill the klebsiella bacteria before it has a chance to make it up to your kidneys. Finish your med and drink lots of water! ...Read more

My vagina itches & becomes red when I have vaginal discharge. Small bumps in the vaginal opening. Urine culture report:1)e coli 2)klebsiella pneumonia?
See answer: It appears you likely have two separate problems: both a UTI (urgency, frequency, burning with urination) and a vaginitis (discharge, redness, itching/burning). Most common causes of vaginitis: yeast, bacterial vaginosis, and trichomonas. I would recommend appropriate antibiotic for UTI bacteria and accurate diagnosis of vaginitis with std screening to determine appropriate vaginitis treatment. ...Read more
