Hello and welcome

I appreciate your concern

If there is fever despite use of antibiotics for the UTI (Urinary tract Infection ) then its likely that the infection has persisted and not responded to the antibiotic therapy. Empiric therapy with broad spectrum antibiotics can be started after doing repeat cultures and subsequently the antibiotics can be tailored according to culture results.

Wishing you best of health

Thanks
