one day at a time . . .

Flagyl

OK… so today I started a new antibiotic, called Flagyl. It’s an antibiotic effective against anaerobic bacteria. Anaerobic bacteria are single-celled, living organisms that thrive in environments in which there is little oxygen.

It’s just something my doctor thought to give a try. Apparently, in CF, these bacteria, because they are buried so deep in the lungs, cannot be found. So, if you have them, they don’t know. So, since I’ve been having so much trouble for 18 months and not much success – it was worth a shot.

I am SO hoping this helps.!

4/8 – well, don’t know if this would have helped, had to stop it once I started my IVs. Maybe we’ll try it in the future…
