That's a bummer. Is it MRSA, or just a generic Staph? MRSA is a mofo, I've seen it at work a few times. Either way, I hope you kick it's ass and get better (pun intended).
If I heard the infectious disease specialist right, it's MRSA. It's really nasty stuff.
The antibiotic I am on is some heavy duty stuff with some nasty side effects of it's own. I have to take benadryl 30 minutes prior to being hooked up to an IV of it or else my head swells up, face turns bright red, and I go to itching everywhere. The nurse called this effect "Redman Syndrome" and said it's somewhat common with the antibiotic as well. I had it happen in the hospital and the nursing staff was unaware of this side effect since they seldom use the antibiotic I am on. When I first reported the side effects I was having they stopped the treatment and shot me full of benadryl. However but the doctor and myself agreed that since this is the only stuff going to kill the infection, I would rather take the benadryl and deal with any remaining itching than not take the antibiotic.
The funny part is when the home healthcare nurse came out to show me how to install the IV, they also taught my 17 year old daughter how to do it as well. She wants to go into nursing so I told her it would be good practice. She found it fun because she gets to jab stuff into me. Guess it's sort of her revenge. Fortunately she is not having to start a needle in me just hook up the IV tubing and such.
The reason they didn't teach my wife if anyone is wondering is because she is too squimish about such things. She can't handle the sight of blood or doing anything like dressing a wound, let alone handle the idea of incerting tubing into a PICC line IV. It would freak her out too much.

Well, I hope you get better, that stuff is NASTY. Any idea how you got it? I've read some pretty startling things about staph, some of it downright scary.

Man, sorry to hear about that, but modern medicine does wonders every day, and I bet you'll be up and walking on two legs in no time.  You seem to have a good attitude about it, too, that can't hurt!

I honestly have no idea how I got it. I know it started off as a small pimple on my knee that just started getting bigger until it was a knot the size of my thumb. Then it drained and turned into a hole followed by a second knot below the hole. That second one then drained and it also became a hole. I first thought it may of been a spider bite but it wasn't.

Best wishes my friend. I've currently got a bad infection in my toe, which I have to wait a month for surgery with, it's not looking (or feeling) too great right now. Hope yours doesn't end up being "amped".

With Circus Circus, along with KYGOTC, and myself all fighting really bad infections, I think it's time to wash the board down with bleach and everyone immediately wash up after each visit. Sure you can claim it's a coincidence but it's a freaky one.
Circus, best of luck with the toe. I hope it's not bad and does not have to be removed because toes play a bigger part than you would think when it comes to balance in the human body.

The rest of you learn from us and avoid infections that might result in body parts being cut off. Between Circus' fight for his toe, KYGOTC's fight for his arm and my fight for my leg, the rest of you should learn something.

Yeah it does. Getting it removed on in a week or two. It's already screwed my balance up and even if I gently run my finger across the toe, I end up howling in pain.

I wish you all the best of luck. We can usually ignore all our body parts until they stop functioning, then it becomes very obvious how much we rely on them.

I hope you pull through, that's not fun in any way whatsoever. Just remember, you're strong and you can handle anything that life throws at you.

This is sad news and I think it's a good time to send you an Afrikaans greeting for strength in times of adversity, meQal:

Baie sterkte [meaning: strength, lots of it] to you, my friend.

I should find out later this week about how long I will need to be on the IV antibiotics for this. It is looking as if it's clearing up but at the same time it hurts worse now. Also while the skin is not as red it is peeling again which concerns me a lot. Granted this might be just more dead tissue that has just managed to work it's way to the surface finally and not some new symptom. I will know for sure on Thursday when I see the infectious disease specialist who is treating me.
Also I will be glad when I can finally stop the IV antibiotics. They make me sick to my stomach. Granted it might be a blessing in disguise however because I need to loose weight anyway and have dropped a good bit since being on them. Just making sure to take vitamins because I am not eating much these days.

Keep up the good fight, meQal. I just read up on MRSA after reading this thread and my heart goes out to you. You'll beat this thing. Stay strong.
