Hello Heather
Am so sorry you are so panicky, but understandable,

How many days were you on the AB's and which one, this will help anyone looking in, to offer you some advice hopefully.

Did the Doc say he was concerned about Bone cancer?

I am sure you will have read previous replys to you and others by Moderator Susan.

Have you tried D, Mannose ( if it was e. coli) or Oil of Oregano. Wonder if they may offer some relief, before your next visit.
I know it is not easy, when you re so worried, also have you also tried a warm hottie or wheat bag around the kidneys.

Hi. Sometimes first Antibi given is general choice if they don't work should do further test and prescribe more specific antibi ASAP. Although taking them is not what you want may be necessary evil to clear kidney infection. Try taking probiotics alongside to try to restore some good gut bacteria for general health. Regarding panic and anxiety would highly recommend seeking some CBT. Cognitive behaviour therapy which can be extremely helpful. Hope you feel better soon.
