I SEEM TO THINK THAT MORE YELLOW YUCKY DRAINAGE MEANS THE CIPRO IS BECOMING LESS EFFECTIVE??
I'M VERY SCARED.
I'M AN RN AND AM READING WAY TOO MUCH ABOUT PSEUDOMONAS-IT'S SCARING ME TO DEATH!
I would suggest steam inhalation for symptomatic relief for the time being and continue with your treatment as advised.
The treatment of sinusitis has a good prognosis in most of the cases so you should not worry much.
DOES INCREASE YELLOW SMELLY NASAL SECRETIONS MEAN THE CIPRO'S NOT WORKING? OR COULD IT BE THE STUFF WAS IN MY SINUSES FOR A WHILE AND JUST CAME OUT?
HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF BEING ON AN ANTIBIOTIC FOR A LONG TIME DUE TO A SINUS INFECTION?
Probably the nasal secretion contains dead wbc along with the debris and suggest that there is a fight between body immune system and the bacteria.
Drainage from swollen or infected sinuses may be thick or discolored and don't suggest that cipro is not working.
And Pseudomonas Aeruginosa causing sinusitis is usually difficult to treat and require a long term antibiotic course.
If you have any gastrointestinal upset then you should start probiotics and metamucil.
