I got MRSA from Chelsea and Westminster Hospital after surgery. The attitude of the staff was was shocking and they seemed unbothered when I found out (by accident) that I had MRSA. I was off work for 3 months and 4 years later I am clear but still very tired.
I had to return for further surgery after 18 months and I was dreading it as it was the same ward. I have to be fair and say that it couldn't have been more different. Everyone seemed to take handwashing etc really seriously.
I was very traumatised and bitter about it for some time but I guess life goes on and the resentment didn't affect anyone else-just me.
I get regularly screened and am pleased to say I haven't had a recurrence.
Good luck everyone.
