    Default Has anyone suffered from a kidney infection?

    I was recently hospitalised with my 1st kidney infection I am home now on antibiotics it has been 6 days since I initially started antibiotics in hospital and I have been home taking oral antibiotics for 4 days
    I am guessing they are working as the shakes and temps have stopped and even started getting an appetite back
    But my kidney still really aches and is sore!! I finish the antibiotics tomorrow and my question is should the kidney pain be gone by now? Or how long will my kidney ache for??

    Hi 2ndtimemumma,
    I have had multiple kidney infections blahhh they are horrible so I really do sympathise with you as to how long they ache i can't really answer as I have ongoing issues with mine compliments of ds. I was pregnant so i can't remember how long it ached originally but I was in hospital for 2 weeks and on oral antis for a further 2 weeks, then ended up having antis on and off for the whold pregnancy If I don't drink enough or if I get really cold or swim in cold water ect it still aches now, 8 years on.

    Did they tell you to go to your local GP within x amount of days after being released? That is what I would do.

    Agree with beebs, definitely see your GP, especially if you are still in pain after finishing your pills.

    You really don't want it recurring! They are the pits!

    Hope you are feeling a lot better soon.

    I had two kidney infections in a 3rd world country. OMG. put it this way, I don't know what was worse, the lack of medical care or the pain. I wouldn't wish the situation on anybody. and to top it off, a sibling and I got into an argument and all of a sudden out of spite he kicks me right in the kidney. I screamed the house down.

    I have had numerous kidney infections including kidney failure whilst pregnant with my DD2. To cut a long story short my kidney still is sore on occasions and she is just short of turning three. I regularly go to a kidney specialist and I told him about it and he said it is probably from the damage that has happened. Mind you he does leave me with ultrasound referrals and says if it continues to book in for one to check on things. I know that if I don't drink my 3-4 litres of water a day it will start to hurt again. Maybe just go and get it checked out to be safe. Good luck
