    My husband was given Gentamicin in his Dialysis fluids. Over the month of June it was prescribed for 21 days It was in his last bag of dialysis fluid which he would then do well or hold and his peritoneal
    cavity until the next Dialysis the next day
    He has a list of problems now and hallucinations are becoming part of that problem

    Recently he has felt as though they were cats running across the floor last night there was a black electric cord on the floor from a fan and he thought they were snakes all on the floor I Need to know if this is the type of things you are encountering and any suggestions I've left word with the neurologist and primary care thinking about going to mayo clinic

    I first took Gentamycin for about 3 days in IV (piggy backed) along with Rocephin IV which I took for 4 more weeks IV thru Picc Line at home after taking it IV twice daily 12 days in the hosp in Telemetry- I had Strep Sepsis ..was near brain death in midst of having a Strep Embolic Stroke when my husband got me to ER in 2013- I agreed to Gentamycin Injection also INTO my right eye (injected into retina/macula area by a Vitreous Eye Surgeon) try to get the right eye infection under control so it would not spread to the left eye- I agreed to the injected Gent b/c it was determined that the Antibiotics given thru IV could NOT get into the infected retina/macula area of eye- My right eye infection WAS killed by the GENT..leaving huge floaters of Die the Vitreous Surgeon weeks later removed the Jelly of the eye to remove most of the big floaters- Sadly I have been taking Gent every 6 months with Anesthesia when I am sedated for swap of double kidney/ureter stints- (Gent given supposedly as Cardio protection for back heart valve that was badly infected when I was septic) - I strongly believe Gent hits the biliary area..just AS Gent did severely affect my grandmother's kidneys in the 1980' the drug was finally discontinued- My grandmother began with Severe Bile Duct Blockage too after taking Gentamycin for bad bone infection (after knee surgeries)- Blocked Bile Ducts killed my grandmother... I never had Biliary/Gallbladder or Pancreas symptoms prior to being given Gentamycin- Like my grandmother's effects from kidney function was found not totally normal anymore...a bladder WALL mass was found...and my old Breast Cancer of 1982 was determined to have invaded my bone- I'm awestricken to see the article mentioning FDA reports showing reports of Gentamycin believed affecting the Pancreas..with Neoplasm, focusing on those whose cancer has spread to BONE- When hospitalized in Oct. 2016, I had emergency Gallbladder Surgery (after it was found totally nonfunctional..all blocked with sludge)...and had ACUTE PANCREATIS- I realize that my symptoms of sudden onset of Biliary symptoms..rolling gas pains high..then their moving down..til diarrhea set in..No Nausea, but sudden vomiting from PAIN.. before it left me each time...have been repeated attacks of "chronic" pancreatitis that became ACUTE in OCT 2016...problems SINCE taking GENT in 2013..& taking it since..EVERY 6 MONTHS for Swapping stints in kidney stint surgeries- My gallbladder biopsy done in the gallbladder removal in Oct 2016..showed that my Gallbladder WALL had become Malignant ! Bottom of my gallbladder fell put the bile duct at risk..& made the surgery difficult..caused need for overstitching..& need for old time drain left IN after watch for leakage- Now my pancreas & liver are suspected (by my oncologist) as possibly malignant ..maybe a reason for the Acute Pancreatitis, High Lipase, etc- Sadly I'm up for another kidney stint surgery in less than 3 days..when I would be given Gent again- I will tell the Anesthesia team I do NOT want Gent...& SHOW them a print out of my reason WHY-

    Hello, I am 89 yrs. old and was on Gentamicin-Heprin at home intravenous treatment for 6 weeks. Before treatment I was mobile and driving now I have to use a walker to get around. I've had complete testing from an optometrist,audiologist, cardiologist and neurologist. They couldn't find anything wrong. Went to an OT for 2 months this kept my legs strong but no relief in walking and stability. Anyone else experience this or have a doctor admit it was possibly caused from the Getamicin
