So last month I took large doses of two antibiotics to cure the endometritis which is "resolving".
On Monday I was working in the garden and got stabbed in the knuckle joint with a rose thorn. 48 hrs later it was hot, swollen, and very painful. Rather than go to the ER I waited to see my PCP this morning. He belives my joint is infected and if I don't respond to the large doses of two more antibiotics, then I'll have to go to a hand specialist for surgery and further treatment. I'm worried about taking so many antibiotics lately. With my medical and microbio background, I'm not usually one to take meds. I'll let colds/sinus problems, even upper resp infections clear themselves over time w/ supportive care. I can see that these two infections absolutely must have meds, I just regret it and worry about the close time frame.
Will it be ok to take 4 different antibiotics in two months?
First two: Cipro and Flagyl
Second two: Bactrim and Doxy
