My daughter was recently diagnosed with Pseudomonas Aeruginosa and has been treated by 4 different antibiotics. (fortaz, nafcillion, unison and zithromycin) She came home with a central line and continued on the nafcillion for 2 weeks. She is now off all antibiotics. (She was hospitalized for several weeks 6)
What are the chances of this coming back.
 I should add that She has speical needs and is not able to cough on command or clear her secretions well. She doesn't walk, sit or talk.
She has severe cerebral Palsy.
Does this ever go away? And how do you think she got it in the first place?
thanks for your reply
Sue Hamilton
