MRSA abscess on spinal cord
Started by Naomi Thompson
Posted: October 3, 2017 at 04:02
I have someone who has a MRSA abscess wrapped around his spinal cord.
Surgery removed most of it, left the front portion as impossible to reach. He has
been left paralyzed from the chest down. Much pain and horrible spasms. The
plan is to contain the abscess until it runs out of food with vancomycin and
ceftroline $500/day. This will continue for months in a nursing home. Is this a
good option? Any others?
Other factors are diabetes and marginal kidneys. He weighs 320 pounds yet after
gastric bypass this past May. This causes malabsorption issues.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
