I guess I wouldn't have any way of knowing if there are already spores. But I am going to vigilant when I go to clinicians and wash my hands really well during this treatment time. A good practice no matter if in treatment or not. Hoping for the best.
PS Jan: Have you heard of anyone here having surgery for the hiatal hernia and not being able to burp or throw up again? It was something I read a while ago and it stopped me from looking further into that option.
