Hi,

Klebsiella urosepsis ( if it is by ESBL strain), then requires treatment for 10-14 days with the appropriate antibiotic (imipenem or meropenem etc.).

The indwellinmg catheter should be changed ofcourse.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
