I went to get my bellybutton checked by my Dr. I had a surgical entry point split open and got infected. I didn't notice it for about a week because I have no feeling there anymore having had 2 surgeries use it as an entry point there is almost all scar tissue there it is numb. When I discovered it, I had my DH look at it since I can't see it very well (I am overweight) and he said it was split wide open. I went to the Dr. yesterday and she said it was really bad and couldn't believe I couldn't feel it while she was draining it and irrigating it.
She is having the scab tested for confirmation, but she is pretty sure it is MRSA. She is treating me aggressively as though it IS MRSA with antibiotics. She told me that if I had waited another few days I would likely be in the hospital! She then freaked me out when she said "another week to 10 days - you might not even be here".
Ok, I know that MRSA is bad, but is it really that life threatening?! I am just a little bit freaked out by how close I came to losing my life!
