Was diagnosed with actemycosis in March 2014 ... Treated with pencillin vk for 18 months & disease went dormant & has been every since... Recently I believe it has come back ... But like before I was misdiagnosed for 6 months as the bacteria grew & smothered my organs... They done emergency surgery & said I was eat up with cancer... Got a biopsy..sent it to Johns Hopkins & it grew for 6 weeks & came back with actemycosis... I have been hospitalized Twice in this month... Levaquin & flag il did not work took for 21 days... Finally prescribed 30 doses of pencillin vk 500mg.. Within 36 hours ... I was filling wonderful.. Now after 28 days off of it.. I'm sick again... Question is can you treat diverticulitis with pencillin vk ?
Penicillin VK is not commonly used to treat diverticulitis. Metronidazole and the other antibiotics listed in the link below are commonly used. However, because you did not respond to metronidazole previously the doctors may have had reason to prescribe Penicillin.
