just curious
« on: April 15, 2006, 03:19:04 AM »
i posted here a while ago, but then stopped. now im just curious, does anyone happen to know anything about MRSA?

about 2 weeks ago my knee became huge and red and i also had a very high fever so went to the er and was admitted for about a week, then got sent home with a PICC line, and thats where i am now. was it just a wrong place at the wrong time kinda thing? ive had a few surgeries on this knee, does that have anything to do with it?

i am not a doctor nor anything.But i suppose you must have had somekinda infection in your knee.That would explain the swollen knee and also the fever.You should probably give the knee rest.Did anything happened before the knee got swollen?

There is a lady in the urgent  section below this one who has MRSA. YOu should contact her for information and help. I also think that Teresa S, has some information on it. Be careful and take care, from what little I know, this can be VERY SERIOUS.
best wishes.
