I'm being admitted into the hospital today..... I don't want to be and I'm scared.
So let me say, this isn't a TROLL post. I'm ANON because I have some CM's on my Facebook that don't know I'm living with this...
Anyway, for the last almost 2 years I've been dealing with MRSA. I've done EVERYTHING to keep from getting abscess sores. But I still get them. We replaced our bed, we got rid of the couches and got leather so we could wipe them down with wipes, we replace socks, underwear, sheets and towels EVERY 3 months. I do bleach baths 3 times a week, I use Bactroban in my nostrils twice a week. I've been tested for EVERYTHING and no matter what I keep getting them.
I had 4 lanced on my butt and 2 on my legs just 2 weeks ago. They numbed, lanced them and then packed them. Put me on antibiotics at home (Doxy and Bactrim) but did a dose of IV Vancamycin.
A few days ago I had new ones come up. I still had the PAIN of the last lancing fresh in my mind so I didn't go in... This morning I woke up and the one abscess on my lower butt cheek was HUGE. The sore is as big as a tennis ball.. I went to my Dr and he made me go to the ER.. I get there and they decided to admit me for IV antibiotics and pain control. They want to surgecally remove the abscess because it's SO big.. I'm SO scared. I didn't think I would EVER be admitted for these... I'm at my wits end ladies. I can't handle this anymore. I've done EVERYTHING I've been told to do and I still get them.
If you pray and even if you don't can you PLEASE pray or send good vibes to me? I'm so scared right now. I can't breathe from crying, I'm shaky...
Have any of you had to deal with MRSA? If so, how did you keep from having so many outbreaks? ANY idea is welcome.. PLEASE!
