Antibiotics and yeast infection?


Recommended Posts

Hi all again,

I have been reading Dr. Ortiz book Lap Band for Life and saw that other than pain meds, they give you antibiotics to make sure no infections surface after surgery. Well, I am concerned because I am prone to yeast infections and usually am able to ward them off by eating yogurt every day while taking them. Problem is, you have to consume only liquids after surgery for a couple weeks or so and so what am I gonna do in case a yeast infection comes to haunt me. I hate those buggers...lol

Thanks for any input.

You'll probably be fine. I've gotten yeast infections from antibiotics but only the ones that I had to take over the course of several days. The antibiotics administered during surgery are a one-time thing and didn't give me any problems. However, if you are still concerned about it, you can get some Monistat and have it on hand (so to speak) in case of an outbreak, or you can talk to your doctor and see if they have some type of medication they would recommend.

Hey Judy...I'm like you and prone to them too...I didn't get one, but you can have yogurt as early as day 4, so try not to worry too much. :D

As a male, I should not be anywhere near this topic.

Just FYI the ABX given before or during surgery are usually powerful, broad spectrum, surgical strength IV ABX such as Ancef, Rocephin or other similar drugs. You could look up these drugs to see if they have any undesireable side effects that may affect you.
