Infections?
Can you tell me what Klebsiella pneumoniae & Streptococcus milleri group are?  

I had an abscess develope about a week after a colonoscopy. It is on the left buttock, close to the recturm area. They did the lance and draining, and sent off for a pathology report, it came back as these two infections. They started the antibiotics for the K. pneumoniae, but did not closely read the pathology report, so seven days later dr. office calls and tells me there is another infection (streptococcus) that should also be treated. There is still pain and the abscess is still painful and firm. They have drained twice. My question is did they wait to long to treat the streptococcus? Could this spread?
