This sounds like you still have the infection. Did your doctor check to see if your antibiotics were correct for the bacteria you have based on the urine culture results? If not, you need to talk to your doctor about this. They may need to prescribe a different antibiotic to completely treat your infection. Hope this helps.
Yes. I can still be an infection. Only a true urine culture can determine whether or not there is residual bacteria.You only had a urinalysis done.
This is likely bladder spasms due to inflammation. Your doctor can prescribe oxybutynin to stop the spasms. Hope this helps.
No, I would not be concerned about IC. Spicy food irritates the bladder as does caffeine. Ibuprofen should not have any impact on your bladder.
Sometimes, this can be a permanent problem. You should avoid these items as long as they irritate your bladder. But sometimes, this overactive bladder can go away after a few months. You just need to start the medication and see what happens.
