Kidney infection? Kait. 3 kids; Iowa 2345 posts

I'm 90% sure I have a kidney infection. I used to get them a lot after I had my kidney mass which resulted in kidney scarring. I've been taking Macrodantin 50mg once a day every day since then to prevent any more scarring. The past 4 days I've had pretty bad kidney pain and now today they are just miserable. I started running a fever a couple hours ago as well, and having chest pain. Does this sound like a kidney infection?

If so, what is the dosing for Macro to get rid of an infection? It's been a few months since I've had an infection. I will call my doctor Monday to get put on something stronger for the time being, but I just want to get through the weekend with some sort of relief. Thank you!
