Duration of a kidney infection can vary depending on several factors. If caught and treated early, the symptoms of a typical kidney infection can subside within a few days. However, if medication is not properly taken, your immune system is weakened by other underlying conditions, or your infection is resistant to the antibiotic your doctor prescribed, then it might be a little longer. If you have chronic kidney infections, the duration will be longer, as will the treatment.

What is the duration of a kidney infection?
Honor Society of Nursing (STTI) answered
Where are the kidneys located?
Normally, humans have two kidneys. To get a sense of where they are, place your thumbs on your lowest ribs, then slide your hands backward around your torso toward your backbone. You have a kidney located there, on each side of your lower spine at about the same level as your lowest rib.Helpful? 1 person found this helpful.
What complications can arise from kidney damage?
Mehmet Oz, MD, Cardiology, answeredKidney damage can be particularly problematic because ironically, among the many jobs the kidneys perform, is blood pressure control. If blood pressure sensors in the kidney malfunction, a vicious cycle of uncontrolled pressure ensues. Kidneys can slowly collapse, eventually progressing from mild chronic kidney disease to kidney failure or end-stage renal disease (ESRD), where they just stop doing any good at all.
