    I've tried a few others, but it's worth trying even more kinds to try and get this issue fixed. Thanks!

  1. Thanks Wayne. You being able to beat it helps me. I have been in a panic.

    Hello,

    I was put on vancomicyn, which is an IV drug. It got rid of it. I got it again and that time my ID doc used an oral antibiotic and I haven't had it sense.

    Don't panic . . . like I did. MRSA isn't as bad as they make it sound. It's treatable. I have a sp now so I drink a gallon of water a day and I instill 30 to 40 ccs of Vetericyn into my bladder every day. I'm doing great now, as far as avoiding UTIs goes.

    Hang in there, Melinda!

    Keep me posted, okay?

    Wayne
