Patient : Hello doctor, i'd just like to ask, i was infected by gonorrhea but was only treated after 5 or 6 years. Can you please help me know if it still dangerous for me or what laboratory test should i need to undergo to check my current status of the desease? It's very important to me to know if i'm already safe out of it. I was treated by 1 single injection of antibiotic drug and took oral medicine "levofloxacin" for a week. Is the medicine enough for me to be confident that i could be free of bacteria? My latest urinalysis result is okay and clear. But i'd like to know if i needed some more specific tests. Thanks in advance!
