My question is are there lasting effects on a person's body long after the MRSA is treated. Such as extreem tiredness, lack of energy etc.

phip had a brilliant idea following my call for a list of hidden mrsa victims in an earlier posting...we need more names and details of all those that have been affected by MRSA mainly to try and show the government that their stats are way off...please i know its hard but there are plenty of people posting on this site with their horror stories..the only way to try and get rid of this bug is to try and present them with the real facts..we are the ones that have the true facts they do not they HIDE them
my mum was amongst the hidden victims..it was surgical site wound and was not mentioned on the death certificate

MRSA diagnosed before surgery - help
Posted by Brad

My father very recently had hip replacement surgery. Before his surgery during normal pre-op bloodwork, he was diagnosed with MRSA (what I assume is the CA version). He was put on antibiotics which were expected to rid his body of the infection prior to surgery. His doctors failed to re-test for the infection before he went into surgery weeks later. They did take a swab however immediately before his surgery began and not until after the surgery did they discover that his body still had the MRSA infection. Now everyone who goes into his room must be covered head to toe so they are not at risk for acquiring the infection. So, can my father experience serious health setbacks because of this clear doctor error? Is there serious danger in this? Will his recovery take longer? Or is this a mild, common thing? I appreciate response from anyone with insights.

Fight MRSA with a vengence

I just wanted to share some of the things that has worked for me in fighting mrsa with my family. I feel bad for people who seem to not really know how to treat mrsa and wind up in and out if the hospital.
Rule 1: As soon as you see a red bump, treat it as MRSA. Do not wait hours or days because the infection will only get stronger and cause you more pain and suffering. Here are some of the things I do that I shared with another poster. I copied and pasted it for everyone:
MRSA first came into my life through my daughter 4yrs old. She started getting these bumps that would turn into boils and puss out. At first I didnt know what to do do or what it was. Then when I found out it was MRSA I started attacking it with as vengence. I worked 12 yrs as a nurse aide and knew first hand how bad mrsa can get if not checked fast. The thing is as soon as you get a bump, you have to start attacking it. You cant wait a few hours or days, because that gives the mrsa time to grow stronger. So as... read more

Returning to work after MRSA

Hi There

I have been negative of MRSA for a few months after the birth of my daughter by C Section. My maternity leave ends in Jan and I am discussing with my work flexible working. Due to my wound still not being fully healed, I am unable to return to work for the 30hrs that they want and have put forward a suggestion of 25hrs, which I think they are going to refuse.

My Employer is writing to my Doctor for verification of my current situation, which I find an insult. What I really want to know, are recovering MRSA patients covered by the Disability Act or Similar???. I just want to rtn to work and be normal again, but I am still receiving weekly nursing care to check my wound. I cannot believe that they are being so difficult as I have always been a loyal member of staff and now I feel discriminated against due to my illness.

Any advice would be really welcomed as I am so upset about all this, and have not got the energy to fight anymore!!

MRSA and Iraq
Posted by Amy
Last Reply July 30, 2014 at 20:02
Started August 21, 2006
I am a 33 y/o female in Washington state dealing with MRSA.
My fiance (healthy 34 y/o guy) developed mrsa while he was in Iraq. Nothing really popped up again until November of 2005. He was treated w/antibiotics and had the boil drained. In February of 2006 I developed a boil under my arm, had it drained and received antibiotics. Since then both of us have developed a boil at least once a month. Presently he has one in his groin area and I have one inside of my vagina. When the boils come to a head and start draining on their own, we have found that rinsing the area with Betadine helps speed up the healing process. But these things keep coming back!!! We are frustrated beyond belief that this disease does not seem to be going away. This is disgusting, painful and highly annoying. This disease does not care who you are, how healthy or clean you are, it will attack. Does anyone have any experiences dealing with this in Washington state? Or anyone in the military who has seen this in... read more

Treating after effect nasal MRSA

I have struggled with MRSA since before 2006 and was diagnosed and
treated in 2007.Essentially I stayed in bed or chair for three years
after MASSIVE year long antibiotic treatment. The MRSA is apparently
dormant nod but I have after effects that are becoming increasingly
hard to handle. I have trouble maintaining my balance walking, often
when I walk I become lightheaded and have fallen many times in public
and knock other people down. Sometimes the the lightheaded feeling is
so severe I must either sit or hold onto a walk until the feeling
leaves. No doctor can understand what I'm trying to tell them about my
symptoms, apparently because they have never faced this before with a
patient. I am becoming a huge liability for my wife. She has to do so
much for me when I'm having a bad day. Has anyone who survived MRSA in
the face ever recovered and experienced symptoms similar to mine, and
how was it treated by your doctor?

I think if you have MRSA you should tell every person you come into
contact with. so they can protect themselves as well. I have been
working as a care assistant to a woman. dealing with her lesions and
she never told me she had it. I have done the infectious diseases
coarse and worked on barrier work. but if you do not know how are we
supposed to protect our families. its air born. sticks to your cloths.
I have a husband with eczema and do not use gloves to apply cream.
because he was tested at hospital and clear. I had no idea the lady i
was working with had it. My gran child fell over in our garden. i
picked her up her knee touched my top. I garden and have gone to work
with scratches on my arm from rose bushes. not knowing they could get
infected by this selfish woman. and she is int elegant. she was just
concerned about getting a care assistant that was reliable and just
kept it to herself for her own gain. I feel so used. and when i asked

The Phage Center may claim 95% success rate with treating impossible to cure
infections.

The one in Georgia is most famous.
Georgia seems to have an agency in Tijuana, Mexico
You also have a Phage clinic in Poland.
And a few in Russia.

command=static_ptwhitepapers&language=0

Type: Phage therapy or Phage center plus the country you look for.

Costs are between $4000 and $7000 without flight and accommodation and treatment
takes often about four weeks.

Inform yourself about this type highly successful treatment if you are in danger.
Most (also terminally ill declared) patients return cured.
Only few need to return for a follow up.
