Thanks for your question.

You may take pepto bismol for the vomiting.You should not repeat the dose as we do not know how much of ciprofloxacin got absorbed.

When you go for the biopsy you should inform the nurse that you vomited after taking ciprofloxacin and they can give a preoperative or intraoperative antibiotic through intravenous route.

Feel free to ask any follow-up questions.

Do take a moment to honor my work and time by ratingmy answer, hopefully, 5 stars.

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.
