    Thanks Eileen. I figured I should but they'll give them to me again right before surgery in 3-4 wks. I don't like taking them too much. kwim?

    Thanks crypticgimp me too!

    It's OK for you to have two courses of antibiotics in this time period. Personally, for me taking antibiotics only means that I also better have some Monostat handy because I never seem to be able to do antibiotics without it affecting me in that specific way.

    Yes, you should finish up the antibiotics, even tho you are symptom free, if you only take part of the course, you have only killed off the weak bacteria, and if you leave just the strong stuff, not a good thing!!
