A:   Hello,
Thanks for the query.

Fever with chills, vomiting, weakness and pain abdomen could be the classical symptoms of a urinary tract infection. Headache is unusual and indicates a viral origin of a fever.
If the urologist is sure that no tests are required, then the doctor is confident that you do not have any major illness. Hence, the doctor has not advised admission. In case you still need an assurance, go for a second opinion. See a physician for a general examination and undergo tests like urine sample for routine and microscopy, blood for counts and culture, typhoid, jaundice and other causes of fever to be ruled out.
A course of antibiotics will help your mother better. Ask her to drink plenty of water daily and have a bland diet till complete recovery.

Hope this helped.
