Kidney Infection?

Had an upper UTI (starting to effect kidney) diagnosed on Monday (first noticed UTI symptoms last Thursday, but by Sunday I was starting to get lower right back ache).

Have been given a 5 day course of co-amoxiclav (although they slipped up and there is actually 21 tablets in the pack - 7 day course). So I am now on day 4 of those (3 a day, started Monday PM). UTI symptoms cleared up overnight, but right kidney still acheing. Actually I would call it "throbbing" now. A bit worse (noticeably), but not loads worse (no pain). More noticeable in the afternoon and evening (after I have been dashing around). Temp is 99'F (so nothing worrying).

Should I be seeing a decrease in the discomfort I my kidney by now? Original antibiotics will complete Sat AM (but they mistakenly gave me enough until Mon AM).

Can you call your surgery and ask if the GP advises taking the extra tablets?
