Staph in Urine Culture - Was Given POISON Pills

    Just came back from Urologist where I was supposed to undergo a cystoscopy, he looked at the results of a urine culture test I'd done in the ER last week, showed me the results - Staph hominis 100,000. He gave me Macrodantin which is absolutely the wrong thing ever to give to someone with my issues which is Hemolytic Anemia (IT CAUSES IT), connective tissue dis-ease (have fibro and osteoathritis, carpal tunnel) and on and on. He said to take it and return tomorrow for this test.

    I'm thinking and intuiting that this was a tainted sample they took in the ER and I do not have a staph infection. I've felt the same all week since visiting there. I did take onne of these vicious pills and then of course googled the side-effects. FTS I am not taking anymore.

    MMS? Oregano oil? Just to be on the safe side. I have to watch these doctors like a hawk and double, triple check everything they want to throw at me.

    @missbliss - I don't know whether you have a staph infection or not, but this states that staph hominis accounts for 89% of contaminants: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC104986/
    I don't know if you would feel comfortable sharing your concerns with your doctor about contamination and, if you do have a staph infection, the appropriate antibiotic. I've had doctors try to give me fluroquinolones 2 or 3 times for minor UTIs and I refused them, and requested a different drug. They weren't happy about doing this but that was too bad and in each case I got an older safer ABX.
