I have e coli from last 2 months even after continuous medication. My current urine culture report have 100000 colony count of bacteria. Sensitive medicines are ciproflaxin, gentamycin, cephalocin (first line of medication). Is anything serious in having colony count 100000 and what should be the course of medication.

I don't understand why you should have this Colony count even after 2 months of treatment. Either the treat is not being taken fully or there is some other reason. This count means a full blown infection. Get a USG done of kidney and urinary bladder to rule out any other pathology and a blood sugar test done to rule out diabetes. Do not take it lightly. Take a lot of fluids orally and contact me.
