ok all you medical folks -- i need your help. the back story is that daughter had a bad UTI, possible in the kidneys. she finished the antibiotics and still had symptoms so she went back on saturday. she still had the uti and now they thought maybe kidney stones. she is on macrobid, i think. now she is running a 102/103 degree fever, congestion in her head, head and throat pain and hurts all over. so am i looking at flu on top of a UTI/kidney stone? should she go back to the dr anyway even though she is on meds or wait it out?

she has stopped throwing up since getting the antibiotics, for several days now. she just says she feel like dying. what would you do?

I would go back to the doctor too. If it is in fact in her kidneys you don't want to let that go at all. She might need an iv antibiotic.

When I had that I ended up in the hospital with IV antibiotics.
Might just be flu on top of kidney stones though. Did they do an U/S or any tests for that?

I had a kidney infection and that is exactly how I felt. I ended up in hospital on IV too.

she was sent via ambulance to the hospital where we spent the night....all night long. they decided she had the flu on top of the UTI and did nothing about possible kidney stones. they had originally suspected menengitis. stupid dr. she out asleep on the floor upstairs right now and i am heading out to get her meds and pick up wyatt and get the dog from the groomer. sleep? ......what is that?!
