  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • Started Cipro this evening after getting results from Dr. today. Neither one of us knew what the bacteria was. Came home and looked it up, and supposedly only three people have had it. Usually kills fish. I have not eaten the things that cause it, so wonder if medically related.
