    Absolutely! Unless the bacteria is completely destroyed it will continue to attack your kidneys.

    What antibiotic did they put on? If it's Levaquin. Go back to your doctor and tell him to give you a different drug. Levaquin is bad business and should be taken off the market.

    I can't remember the name it has to be pregnancy safe since I'm in my 3rd trimester. I don't think I've ever taken Levaquin I know at least not recently I haven't I have heard a lot of bad things about Levaquin
