Dear Marilyn,
Thank you for providing quick additional info.
Feeling the bladder is not empty right after urination is incomplete emptying. Due to muscle rigidity in the pelvic floor, the urethral sphincter may not relax quickly or completely which decreases the ability of the bladder to empty
A common complaint that indicates a difficulty in emptying the bladder in women is recurrent cystitis,because the problem reduces the normal protective mechanisms against bladder infection.
Normally,when you void urine,bacteria are washed away from the urinary bladder & urethra,but because the bacteria will stay there for longer and this result in repeat infection.
There may be weakness in bladder muscle or bladder muscle is unable to contract properly,as it should.
So it is quite possible that because of improper emptying of bladder,you still have the urinary infection/recurrent infection.
You need :
-A repeat urine examination
-Kidney x-ray
-Urodynamic tests-These tests involve and pressure monitors that record the pressures of the bladder and urethra.
Because of your improper emptying of bladder,you get urinary tract infection & there is probability of repeat infection & these bacteria gets resistant & so even after antibiotics you are having frequent & burning urinataion.
So for confirmation,I advice you to make an appointment with your urologist to have these tests done so as to know the exact underlying cause & then treatment will be done accordingly.
Hope this helped.
My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back, I am happy to address follow-up questions.
Thank you *****

HelloCipro can no longer be considered to be a good first line antibiotic for UTI, there is too much resistance.So your next step is a urine culture, to identify sensitivities of the bacteria to the correct antibiotic
Sorry my post was interrupted.
The culture needs to be done today.
Untreated infection, as you have, can become a kidney infection.
Any doctor can do the culture.
A urologist would take weeks to get into.
Go to urgent care, call your doctor etc.
OK. If you have further questions or details, use reply to expert.
