      the reading is that (as we know so far) they maybe there, but if they are they are encased in a biofilm surrounding the aortic graft. If that is the case (and we don't know) then this is not ideal as they may well be slowly digesting the materials they are on ... leading to a bad future outcome.

      I believe we need more research to clarify this.

      I remain on antibiotics and await more input
