In brief: Makes sense

There are many diff bacteria that can cause utis and the type you had was resisitant, but the culture and sensitivity that they did will tell you which type of antibiotic should work.
I rarely use batrim as many bacteria are now resisitant to that one. I use Cipro (ciprofloxacin) - that usually works much better and u do not ahve to take it for as many days.
