So glad to hear your home .
Sounds as though chemo hit your body hard but I am also hoping it gave the cancer a big hit too!
Rest well and speedy recovery. You have endured a lot the last couple of weeks .
This statement is a bit misleading.Green Tea wrote:For example, if your initial IV antibiotic was Flagyl (metronidazole), then it is for Gram-positive bacteria only and will not work at all for Gram-negative bacteria. If your abscess is caused in fact by a Gram-negative bacteria, then something like Meropenem might be more appropriate.
Metronidazole has activity against protozoans like Entamoeba histolytica, Giardia lamblia and Trichomonas vaginalis, for which the drug was first approved as an effective treatment. Anaerobic bacteria which are typically sensitive are primarily Gram-negative anaerobes belonging to the Bacteroides and Fusobacterium spp.
