Sue, Does the Mayo Clinic lab provide a colony count? I have not been told how many colonies I have.

My tests are done by the Minnesota Dept of Health, with the sensitivity testing done by NJH (National Jewish Health.) While the colony counts are not given to me unless I ask, my doc has them – so I don't know which lab provides them. Instead the report I get says one, few, some or many… Labs that specialize in cultures do colony counts, it just depends on who it is reported to – you or your doc – and how is is communicated on to you.
Another example of how we have to stay on top of things with these ailments and ask a lot of questions.
