Hello. I am 43 yr. old and had a total abd. hysterectomy 9 weeks ago. I have been on 5 antibiotics since that time... cipro and then cephalexin for UTI that cipro did not take care of. I also had a severe yeast infection - dr. put me on diflucan for 10 days did not cure so he put me on Ketacanazole for 10 days along with monistat 7 day treatment. After 4th day of monistat abdomen hurt so bad had to go to emergency room. Said I had a vaginal bact. infection. put me on flagyll. I had been having diarrhea off and on ever since I had hysterectomy. Flagyll oddly enough gave my stools shape. I had to go back to ER 4 days after finishing flagyll. Blood test showed I had some low levels including low neutrophill% and low potassium level, WBC normal. Put me back on Flagyll three times a day for 14 days... they think that I have C. Diff. infection. Went to DR. for follow up two days later and my resting heart rate was 102 (normally in 60s) blood pressure up to 135/100 (normally around 111/67). Dr. sent me to have an ecg. ecg results came back with normal sinus rhyth. Nonspecific st abnormality / abnormal ecg. Vent. rate 87 BPM , PR int. 152 ms , QRS dur. 76 ms. , QT/QTR 356/427 ms, and P-R-T 49-23-2. When I went to exercise today abd. hurt and only did mild exercises for 18 min. I usually go about 1 hour. Checked blood pressure and it was 135/109. Is all of this related. Should I see cardiologist?
