Continue your antibiotic but plan follow up with your doctor should be turning to feel better by now ...your situation calls for follow may have a more serious kidney infection and not just bladder...
Possible that this UTI may have resistance to the antibiotic
These possible problems may be checked out ...
For now though continue your current antibiotic/ push plenty of fluids and may help to add vitamin C 500 mg twice a day
