Thank you for the well wishes! I too very much hope that we can clear up this discharge soon. It's been going on for so long, and has cost quite a bit of money ...

But researching a little more about staph I found one article that said that staph (and other bacteria as well) will grow well where there is scarred tissue (less blood supply there?). And since she has a stricture in her vagina and possibly scarred tissue as well, I was thinking, maybe she's just very prone to getting infections in there because of the climate in her vagina that makes it easy for them to settle there ... ??? Because in June she had strep in there, now it's staph, made me think. We don't know what caused the discharges before June, because we never did a swab before, might have been other bacteria as well.

If this is true, she might always have problems. Again and again ... Because she's prone to it.

And that would mean antibiotics again and again, which is also not good. What if she gets another disease at one point and antibiotics won't help anymore?

*sigh*

Btw, there are several antibiotics that help with staph, I had at first read about a particular strand that is very resistent and only ONE antibiotic still helps with it (HUGE problem in American hospitals I read). I hope she doesn't have that strand.

So, I guess we will be able to clear it up once more, but as I said above, if my theory is true, she might just get something new again. Poor girl!
