In brief: Not cured.

These may be indicators that the infection has not been "cured, " which is more likely if your practitioner "emperically" gave you an anitbiotic, without obtaining a urine culture and sensitivity test.
If you are symptomatic, you should see your doctor, particularly if this study was not done.
