I didn't know Flagyl is effective for Bartonella.
That's great that your daughter has her gallbladder surgery scheduled...
Hope all goes well!
There's a load of technical info in the link, so here's the important part: "Metronidazole and Clindamycin
Metronidazole is a small lipophilic compound that is active against most anaerobic bacteria penetrating well into most tissues, including abscess contents. In animal studies, metronidazole readily penetrated the blood-CSF/blood-brain barrier, and data regarding the entry into human CSF and brain abscess confirmed this finding (93, 101, 258). Metronidazole is part of the standard therapy of bacterial brain abscess...."
I tried to find two links that would tie in to each other, but that could take hours trying to 'ask google the right questions'.
There is plenty of evidence even here on this board, going back even to 2012 where people were experiencing "Bart rages", while in treatments not necessarily specified. But my point is 1st, Bart rages are known to others other than myself. Given that these rages are ramped up during treatment and are likely herxes, logically to me that means the Bart is getting hit with something.
I have tried to find medical evidence to support the fact that my experience was not unusual.
My friend didn't give me a source link to read.
