Cyst Infection Allergic To Fluoroquinolones

Postby William_T » Sun Apr 22, 2018 10:00 am

I am having reoccuring problems with kidney cyst infection. Just spent five days in the hospital on Zosyn antibiotic IV and was sent home on a two week regimen of Vantin. I am allergic to fluoroquinolones (had a rupture Achilles Tendon and Neuropathy in both feet from the last round of them). Also had three cysts drained via needle aspiration.
Has anybody had cyst infections and been allergic to fluoroquinolones? What antibiotic/s were used to get rid of it?
PLEASE HELP. Two five day stays in the hospital, one trip to the ER and two minor episodes at home in the last 4 months.
