    Interpreting culture report: MIC and resistance

    A recent culture was positive for klebsiella pneumoniae that recurred after a course of ciprofloxacin (PO). I have two sets of questions about the culture report:

    1. Gentamicin had a MIC of 4 ug/mL; meropenem of 1; and ceftriaxone of 1. The urologist suggested a course of IV gentamicin...

  • Thank you for the information KLD.

    I have not yet seen my PCP. I have been mainly focused on a UTI right now. The particular new foot ulcer did heal on its own, with dressing.

    Ok thanks. I looked it up and honestly that sounds kind of scary, a tube going next your heart. I don’t think I have the courage for this disease.

    Olive oil

    I've been finding that olive oil, a lot of it, is an effective stool softener. Much better than docusate sodium which had no effect.

    However, it is hard to eat that much olive oil - lots and lots and lots of pasta - and, more importantly, I am not really sure at all that the olive oil is...

    Multiple ulcers appearing on foot and I don’t know why

    Over the last month I’ve had three or four incidents of ulcers appearing on my right foot. Each has been about an inch in diameter and looks exactly like a stage two pressure sore. After several weeks care with Xeroform & polysporin, the first group seemed to heal, but a few days later a new...
