Actually scrap that. I have just had to redress my bandage myself as it was smelling really bad. (I am supposed to be getting a dressing done by the nurse tomorrow) I took it all off and looked at my toe. It was black. It smelt horrific and is now really hurting after I wiped it. I've put some more dressing on, but I'm really freaking out about it now.  Bluesad

Holy crap. Tell that to a doctor. Sounds like you need something for your toe.

Yikes! Is this the same foot that had the run-in with the spider in the shower?  Yeah - call the doctor!

Just been guys.  Bluesad

They said it was infected badly round the edges of the toe, so they've cleaned it up and put more iodine on with a new dressing. The nurse rang the pharmacy straight away to order more antibiotics and told me to go home and rest it properly for at least a week. I'm back on my codine painkillers (It's excruciating at the moment) and currently "relaxing" on the sofa.

The sucky thing is, I need to get out to get more tablets, pay the rent and get some food. Kinda screwed there.

Circus, ouch! You are the second person I know of who had a bad infection in their toenails in the past couple of months that just won't go away. A friend of mine on another site jsut got home from having two of his toes removed because of one. Let's hope it doesn't get that bad.

And speaking of going back on antibiotics, I will be sometime today I suspect. Not the leg this time however. Due to a kidney disease I have, I am subject to get unrinary tract infections and yep, got one. Been running a fever and feel like someone has kicked me in the groin, yet it's not as bad as the staph MRCA I had in August.

Circus - good to hear you got that taken care of!  Those infections can be bad news.  Looks like you'll just have to kick back and watch some bad movies for a while  TeddyR

MeQal - man, if it isn't one thing, it's another, eh?  Hopefully they get you taken care of with some antibiotics.  Time for you to rest up and take it easy too  TeddyR

I had a chronic prostate infection back in the 80s on and off for about two years. Finally went to a new doctor and had kidney xrays and a cistiscope, ouch! Not really they gave me the happy juice and didn't care.   Anyway ended up taking Bactrim (a sulfa drug) for like three months.

By the way I've  never mentioned that my ortho doc released me back in September from my shoulder surgery.

Ask someone to get you some food and pills.

That really is the best idea that I have. Lookingup

I had to get a taxi round to a few places, as I don't have anyone to do that for me. I got some shopping delivered, so I'm alright for now.

Hey all. The last few days I've been laid up in the hospital due to a severe staph infection over my left knee. The problem is it's a nasty one that won't go away. I got home today and will be on IV antibiotics for at least 4 weeks to try to clear it up. If however this does not work, I have been informed by the doctors treating me for this that they will have to amputate my left leg above the knee. So for now it's a wait and see thing.


Oh, my God!  That's terrible, I hope things work out okay for you!  :(

I do have a question though, amputate?  I mean, can't they try maggot therapy or something?  (And no, I am NOT making that up.)

http://www.usnews.com/blogs/thinking-harder/2009/03/31/maggot-therapy-how-to-find-a-doctor-who-will-prescribe-maggots.html

Granted, I don't know if they work on a staph infection, but I guess it couldn't hurt to research it.  Either way, hope you get better.

EDIT: Shoot.. didn't realize how late I was to this discussion... anyway, hope things are going better now.

Circus, hope you feel better soon as well!

He's okay dude. That post was from last month. His antibiotics kicked in and did the job.  Thumbup

Maggot therapy is gross. Saw a video where it was done half-assed in some eastern european country and the dude's leg was crawling with flies and he just died in some tent.  Buggedout

I suggested that to my docs when they were discussing the amputation and they were not willing to try it. However fortunate for me, they didn't have to amputate the leg either.
