Re: Kidney pain with UTI

Hi Ken
(I presume it is a long-term catheter?)
Just a few things to keep in mind
1. Treatment (in catheterised patients) should always be based on symptoms and positive urine culture
2. Urine culture has been done
3. Renal tract ultrasound to rule out kidney or bladder stones

If UTIs persist despite that then a cystoscopy should be done along with bladder washout which might be helpful in some cases.
