Discussions that mention clindamycin

Rare Disorders board


In 6-02 I had a discogram and was infected with this rare bacteria, Doc just got back from Africa and done in shared mini-hosp,(outpatient) with gastrointestinal practice, colonostopys being done in next room while he is sticking needles in my back!!! It settled in my L-3-4 level which was good disc that he compared internal pressure from, and I have herniated and torn discs at levels L-4-5 band L-5-S-1. Osteo surgeon did emergency surgery in 12-02 to remove disc at L-3-4 with fusion and debridement. Fusion never took cause infection still present, Now he wants to do it from posterior and put in hardware but wont address original bad discs until I get discogram resultss that he is supposed to have, I've been trying and trying to get them but no luck yet, I will not let him cut me again unless he fixes all bad discs. Does anyone know what will kill this rare bacteria? I have had 2 pic lines ,first with IV rocephin, then oral flagyl , the second with IV cleocin and then oral clindamycin to no avail I still am infected and it's eating away my spine. Any responses would be greatly appreciated Thanks and God Bless

I don't think the doctor having just come back from Africa has anything to do with it BTW
