RBC 25-30 /hpf in Urine

In my urine there is a presence of RBC 25-30 /hpf. I also have a high fever ranging from 102 to 103.4 (max recorded) with unbearable headache at the back of my head. Is the fever a result of the RBC in my urine or is it vice-versa. I have consulted two doctors, one who asked to get all the blood and urine tests done, and the other who asked to get the urine test done again. As per the second doctor's prescription I am taking- • Switch 200 • Aceclofenac and Paracitamol (Alock P) • Cefpodoxime Proxetil Tablets (Switch 200) Due to holidays the retest result of Urine would only come on Tuesday. And it has been 5 days since fever (non pathological, as per the report) and as soon as the effect of medicine wears, the fever comes back. Please suggest as till now nothing seems to work. Even Paracetamol has not helped a lot in keeping my headache controlled. Ibugesic Plus did get my fever and headache down for around 5 hrs, after which the pain comes back.

Repeated Urinary Infectio

Dear Doctor, The problem is with my 1-year-old Niece, currently in Dubai. She has been having repeated urinary infections and after further checkup, the doctor there determined that she had a blockage in the upper part one of her kidneys which was causing her repeated infections. The doctor there recommends she have that portion of her kidney removed. Until then she is put on daily dosage of Septrin- Paediatric Suspension (Trimethoprim-Sulfamethoxazole). I would like to get a second opinion on the same and would be glad to follow up on the same towards the second week of October when they are visiting India. I am attaching copies of a nuclear scan (99mTc DTPA Diuretic Renal Scan), micturating cystourethrogram, and CT abdomen & Pelvis. Would be great if someone can help us out on this.
