Can anyone tell me if this will be a problem now that I have just undergone 6-1/2 months of chemotherapy for breast cancer and need a mastectomy within the next month or so, and just found out that the abscess I thought I got from an ant bite is now MRSA.. what will happen when they go to operate on me? Will the staph infection get worse once they open me up to do a mastectomy? Will they be able to later on go in and do reconstructive surgery which will be longer operating hours? Will I ever be rid of this MRSA?
I just found out about this today and am still in shock and feel as doomed as I did the day I found out I had cancer!
if anyone knows if I can be operated on now or not, please let me know, if not, I will end up dying of cancer or will I end up dying from MRSA now??????

ARGGG!!!! I thought I had finally licked this thing, but I haven't. I developed yet another infection a couple of days ago. Last round I developed an alergy to Bactrim (which seemed to be helping) so my doctor put me on Tetracycline this time around. Anyone have any luck on this?

I'm going to an infectious disease doctor next week. It's never gotten serious, but I've been battling skin infections for a couple of months now.

MRSA possibly living in body tissues?

Understand the logic of "air-borne" transmittal, but I have been fighting this for almost a year now, and all cultures of skin, nasal passages, vagina, rectum, you name it, have tested negative for colonization.

I am working with a medical doctor/researcher at Emory in Atlanta as of last infection three weeks ago and undergoing voluminous blood tests (MRSA not present in blood -- but looking at complements, proteins, etc. that are not within normal range).

Testing theory started by my OB/GYN that infection IS (despite prior medical consensus to contrary) able to live within the body, perhaps endocrine system and effectively "hide" from antibiotics.

Does anyone else have any comments re this idea? Would appreciate any advice/comments. Have tried IV vancomycin, rifampin, zyvox, herbal treatments, vitamin therapy, variety of other antibiotics - to no avail. Infection has become debilitating at times, but for some reason even as it has invaded muscle tissue, it has nev... read more

I visited someone in the hospital about a week ago and I touched the area around her wound with my bare hands. I washed my hands after that and I disinfected them; after a few days I found out that that was an mrsa wound... Can I be infected? Please advise!

Please be advised;

The individual posting as "Dr Ese Callum" is not a doctor, and actively promotes dangerous or harmful procedures. He has promoted the drinking of [toxic] colloidal silver as a cure for bacterial infection, the application of electric fields to cure all forms of cancer [which he also claims are also all caused by the same micro-organism found only on the Asian sub-continent], and the direct application of high levels of ozone to open wounds to speed healing [high levels of ozone are actually corrosive to flesh].

I understand that you do not know me, or have any reason to believe me, but please heed this warning. "ese callum" (*not* a doctor of any sort) has been reprimanded on the BBC boards for making these kinds of dangerous claims.

MRSA: new research findings.
Posted by Robert G. Wood-Smith & Partners.

Started July 6, 2005 at 13:36
Ten years research ~ concerning the reasons why DNA will in certain circumstances propagate 'abnormal' genes, chromosomes, RNA, proteins and cells (matters the Partners now understand in detail)~ throws light on the reasons why new hospital infections (abnormal bacteria) are forming: one such infection is MRSA. Given such an understanding, it would appear probable those infected can be treated with success.

In the 'background to the above statment' ~ relating to AIDS, there has been a successful clinical trial, knowledge of which has been suppressed under the influence of a powerful vested interest. Cancers can and have been treated with success rates of 90% to 95% ~ but who will listen to the underlying science which supports such results? A Motor Neurone Disease Research Study, advocated by a respected European professor in the field of medical research, produced positive remedial benefits for the patients: publication has been hampered due to an illogical lack of co-operati... read more

Information on MRSA

I have read a lot of comments saying people can't get enough information on MRSA and as a retired microbiologist I am perplexed about that. I just did a quick search with with the string "What is MRSA" and found a lot of authoritative information from US and UK. Am I missing what peolpe are looking for??

Another thing I have noted is that people feel there is not enough visibility re: MRSA and superbug infection - here I agree and I was wondering if this group could take on the creation of a universal symbol designating superbugs and perhaps a differentiation for - "deaths by superbug" and "survived superbug infection". The more visible such a symbol would become, the less likely it would be to sweep the MRSA problem under the rug!

I have a little cartoon superbug that says:

"Before the evening sun turns red another 22 Canadians from superbug infections will be dead". That makes an impression on people - (for US it would be 110)
