You definitely do not need the cefuroxime. The Bactrim is sufficient and I don't even send my patients out in any prophylactic antibiotics unless there is sign of infection at the time of surgery. Taking cefuroxime will only increase your risk for a severe bowel infection called clostridium dificile. Your doctor has sent you out of the correct regimen. Hope this helps.
