Hi, my friend is 53 years old and he is in the hospital waiting for operation on his bowel. He told me that he is taking two types of medications Kanamycin and Lincomycin. I would like to know something more about these two drugs and what is their goal. Thank you.

Hi, both of these two drugs are antibiotics, first one is stronger and is usually given to prevent possible infections if it appears after surgery on bowel. Lincomycin is also antibiotic which may be given to treat spread infections. However these two medications are given to your friend as preparation for surgery which will come.
