Rare bacteria moderate mucous snd protien in urine flank pain normal CT so what else could be wrong? Just got off meds for kidney infection

?? pyelonephritis. Was ct done with contrast? Could have missed pyelonephritis (pn), even if contrast was used, in absence of any gross changes. Were u on Macrodantin (nitrofurantoin) which sterilizes urine but does not get into the tissues ; thus no good for pn. Need repeat urine culture ; at least 2 weeks on an effective antibiotic as determined by bacterial sensitivities. Good luck.
Pain. Residual pain that persists after resolution of infection is often due to inflammatory changes that remain long after cure of the causative agent. It is possible that you have a residual focus of infection that has not yet manifested itself by the tests you have taken, but this is less probable. Give this a little time.
