  • Lingering flare after kidney infection

    My kidney infection has cleared up. I went to my uro last week and the culture came back negative. The kidney infection symptoms were mostly back and fever extra foul smelling urine. That's all gone but now I 'm dealing with a lingering flare which is driving me crazy. Constant urgency and a stinging urethra along with my usual leaking problem due to having MS. I can't win for losing. I was wondering how common it is to have flares after uti's and how long do they last. I want to feel "normal"again. Normal for me is still somewhat less than ideal but I a least have a few good days here and there. Right now every single day is a bad day and I'm not much fun to be around. Prayers are welcome.
