pg  IS rare but it is  associated with crohns as is eryethra nodosum ..sp..
unknowingly when i was hving severe outbreaks of the pg i kept getting put on vanco iv for weeks at a time
this is what caused me to lose part hearing n then total hearing

Sorry, Lyn. If there's something worse than dealing with the medical problems, it's feeling that they could have been avoided :-(

I'm so sorry Lyn! I hope your lawsuit brings about better warnings for patients. I suffered permanent damage from Levaquin. The FDA put a black bow warning on it 6 months after I was injured by this antibiotic. Hearing loss is far more traumatic than my injury. My thoughts are with you. ~~Ides

thanks to both of you
yes it is scary what some antibiotics can actually cause in longterm health issues
levaquin n rocephin are also high on list for health issues with long use

if i get monies out of this will def be going to deaf awareness drugs awareness n the rest to ccfa or ccfc
any monies wont get my hearing back but i do want it to be well documented n docs made aware of long time usage health n physical issues
tk care n again ty
