Sputum Results

Due to the findings of Stenotrophomonas Maltophilia in my last culture (read here), I went back to give a sputum culture right before Christmas in hopes to find that the Bactrim got rid of the bug.  Unfortunately, I heard from my doctor today, and I still have the bug.  That sucks!

We knew it wasn't a guaranteed thing, but I was definitely hopeful.  However, I guess my lungs are more welcoming than I want them to be.

What's the plan?  Nothing right now.  Just going to be keeping close watch on my PFTs and how I feel.  Fortunately, I feel great!! My next appointment is in February, so hopefully all goes well!
