Thank you for the input.
Fever may continue for a few days.
Give her Tylenol or Motrin if the temperature rises to 101 or above.
Do not give Motrin in empty stomach.
Give it along with some food or after food.
Antibiotic can take 2-3 days to have its effect.
It has been started last night only.
Usually supportive measures are needed.
Please keep good hydration.
Rest and sleep are good.
Give her liquid, semisolid food.
In fever, urinary infection more fluid is needed.
If the pain abdomen increases or her symptoms get worse, I would suggest to get her an examination by doctor again.
I hope this information will be helpful.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
