I found preliminary results of a stool test that was sent STAT to my chiro. What scares me is that he said that the lab NEVER sends STAT reports before the rest of the lab results are in....he said that this means that my infection is very serious. I have a rare infection of:
Aeromonas sobris and aeromonas cerviae.
Have u heard of these? God only knows what else is brewing, but the lab said that the only cure is Cipro. I'd rather avoid such a heavy-duty antibiotic, for that may cause more harm than good.
There isn't much info out there, but it is a Gram-negative, non-spore-forming, rod-shaped, facultatively anaerobic bacteria?
Good overview, treatment, presentation, causes. Maybe my "MRSA" infection was actually the aeromonas, but it didn't show up on the culture sample.... I still get flareup of cellulitis in my hand at random times (not to mention the Acne and GI issues). Did the Vanco make it worse?
Does anyone have any knowledge on this? Any suggestions?
Should I do the Cipro, or is there another alternative? I'm afraid it might cause secondary infections....should I take an anti-fungal with this to prevent candida?
