does this stuff ever really go away?
I was diagnosed back in 2005 with MRSA. At first I did not know what the stuff was. I went to urgent care and the dr on call said I just had a staff infection, put me on some antibiotics and sent me home. I went away for the weekend and when I got home this stuff was worse and I had one in a not so wonderful location. I went to my gyn except my regular one was off so his partner helped me, and I use the term "helped me" loosly. He took a swab and kept me on the anti biotic I was taking and told me to return in a week and to use anti bacterial soaps until then. This stuff went crazy on my body, but I kept on keepin' on. When I returned to the gyn he showed told me the test results showed I should be on a different kind of antibiotic, but told me to just continue taking what I was taking. I questioned his reasoning, especially since the paperwork said I should be on something totally different, but he would not prescribe what was on the paperwork.I went home, I felt like I was dying within a few days.I decided to go to my family dr. of 30+ years. He took one look at the paper work, told me the good news was the "dirt cheap" antibiotics was the prescribed medication, but he told me to go home and make sure I had someone with me, and go look up MRSA. I did not have a clue! When I realized that first dr. almost killed me I was pissed! BTW, he never did send me a bill...go figure. I do not remember the name of the antibiotic, all I know is within a month I was not suffering with anymore sores. My dr. said I was on the other side of the illness, but I am wondering, does this stuff ever really go away? I know I experience issues with my skin now that I never did before, like eczema, alot of hives, and the hives drive me crazy with itching! Anyway, what do you all believe? Do you believe this stuff ever really goes away, and if so, does anyone else suffer side effects from it?

I was diagnosed with MRSA a few months ago. I was shocked and really not sure what to do. I did some research on it but there really isn't much info which is very frustrating. I was put on antibiotics for 2 months to take care of the initial infection. I was hoping that would be the end of it but since no one really explained it to me and I wasn't able to find much info about it, I didn't...

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
