Question: Cipro may not be working?


 JoyS - Mon Feb 09, 2004 7:33 pm

Have been taking Cipro since Friday after seeing my regular physician re: pain in lower left back and temperature around 100F. Pain in my back is no better, and may in fact be worse. Am still running a temperature (about 99-100). Is there something this could be besided a kidney infection? Pain is so bad I cannot sleep at night.

I have had an ovary removed after a tumor engulfed it. I am concerned I may be having similar problem now, is that possible?

Thank you!

Joy

User avatar Joy,
Have you done a urine microscopic analysis and a urine culture and sensitivity test? How have these turned out?
