Patient :Hi. I have recently been diagnosed with pyelonephritis (kidney infection). Because of genetics I am very susceptible to UTIs and have had them frequently. My symptoms started 55 hours ago, and I started antibiotics 39 hours ago. My fever has subsided, but I still have tenderness in my back and achiness in the rest of my body. Is this normal timing for the healing process of a kidney infection? I am a 20 y/o female, and some input would be much appreciated!
