In brief: A few reasons

Hi There are a few reasons.
If you completed antibiotics, if it was a very bad infection, sometimes you will have a little residual pain while the swelling/inflammation resolves. Another possibility is that you had a kidney stone that lead to the infection. Or if you are still sick, maybe the infection progressed to something like an abscess. Hope this helps
