HI ALL-JUST GOT HOME. DR ON TOP OF IT ALL. HAVE ALL MY QUESTIONS TYPED OUT AND GAVE HIM BUT BEFORE I LOOKED AT IT HAD ALREADY TOLD ME ALL THE ANSWERS...HE JUST KNOWS WHAT'S GOING ON. GOD BLESS HIM,

BOTTOM LINE

1. DOESN'T WANT ME ON ANYMORE ANTIB...THINKS IT LOOKS BETTER BUT...AND A BIG BUT...SINCE I WAS MOVING FURNITURE AT 12:30 ALONE LAST NITE...(THE CARPET LOOKS WONDERFUL AND FAMILY ROOM IS A PLACE I CAN RELAX IN NOW AND WILL SLEEP THERE AS COOLER AND GET LEG UP CONSISTANTLY ON SOFA.) .THIS AM WOKE UP WITH THE KNEE BENT AND FOOT DOWN AND SWOLLEN..GRRRRRRR.

2. HE WANTS A SECOND OPINION FROM VASCULAR SURGEON..NOT FOR SURGERY BUT FOR CUSTOM MADE COMPRESSION STOCKINGS OR A LYMPHODEMIA PUMP TO GET THE SWELLING DOWN.OR WHAT EVER HE THINKS I NEED OTHER THAN THIS..

3. CONCERNED THAT THERE MIGHT BE A TINY INFECTION OF CELLULITIS BACTERIA LEFT AND INCREASING CIRCULATION IS THE ONLY THING NOW THAT MIGHT HELP. LUCKILY THE SURGEON IS BEST FRIENDS TO ONE OF MY BEST FRIENDS...

MY DR SAID IF I HAD TROUBLE GETTING FAST APPT TO CALL HIM BACK & HE'D CALL..CALLED SURGEON OFFICE AND THEY WERE GONE FOR THE DAY BUT LEFT A MESSAGE TO CALL ME TOMORROW WHEN THEY GOT IN..MESSAGE SAYING NEEDED TO GET IN AND EXPLIANTION OF WHY ...ASAP...FORGOT THAT IT'S GOING TO BE A LLLLLOOOOONNNNNGGGGG 4TH WEEK END.. AND WANT THIS ADDRESSED SOON.

4. TOLD ME TO KEEP EYE ON TEMP AND ELEVATE OVER HEAD 100%.. IF THERE IS A CHANGE IN TEMP ESP..CALL ME RIGHT AWAY. HOPE HE'S ON CALL THIS WEEKEND BUT HOPE MORE WON'T NEED HIM.

5. WENT TO SEE CHIRO SO SHE COULD SEE WHAT HE SAW..SHE AGREEDED WITH ALL HE SAID AND DIDN'T THINK THE CELLUITIS IT SELF WAS ACTIVE BUT ADEMA WAS A REAL ISSUE. KEEP IT UP AND REST.THAT'S WHAT I'M GOING TO DO.

6. SHE WANTS ME TO TRY THE 'CONTRAST THERAPY' TOO. I WILL....WORTH A TRY

7. MY DR'S OFFICE JUST CALLED. TERRY NURSE JUST SAID DR CAN'T FORCE THEM TO SEE ME BEFORE FRIDAY AND IF ALL GOES WELL AND NO FEVER OR OTHER PROBLEMS...I CAN WAIT TO SEE THEM NEXT WEEK SO GALD IT'S NOT AN EMERGENCY TO GET IN..HE MUST HAVE FELT I WAS BETTER :)

PLAN--KEEP LEG UP AND FORCE FLUIDS SAY INSIDE AND COOL AND ENJOY CLEAN HOUSE.....HAPPY 4TH TO THE 'OLD FARTHS' EXCITING WEEKEND. :lol: WILL ALSO DO THE CONTRAST THERAPY .....

8 WELL GUESS THAT'S IT...DR DID SAY HE DIDN'T WANT ME ON ANY ANTIB B/C OF MY INTOFFEREANCE

DID SAY IF FEVER GOES UP HAVE TO GO TO HOSPITAL AND HAVE IV..ASKED ABOUT HOME CARE WITH IT AND HE SAID NO...HAD TO BE IN FOR A FEW DAYS. WE DISCUSSED WHY THIS WOULDN'T BE GOOD FOR ME BUT WE'LL HOPE THAT DOESN'T HAPPEN

THANKS FOR THE PRAYERS AND IF TIME...PLEASE KEEP THEM COMING. I'M OPTOMISTIC ...THINGS ARE GOOD NOW AND PRAY THE ANTIB WILL HOLD AND KEEP ME SAFE WHILE I HEAL WITH REST...AND THE CONTRACT THEARPY...

LOVE JUDY

Hi Judy:

I hope this finds you feeling better. Does anyone know what to do about these huge like boils I keep getting on my face? The doctor said something about a staph infection and gave me a topical cream to put in my nose? She said that is where it comes from. The prescription is MUPIROCIN and states do not get near your nose, eyes or mouth so I am a bit perplexed and unsure about how to proceed.

Can you say Overachiever???? No more moving furniture! You may push your progress back... On that note--I would be in danger of doing the same in your position. My mom would have had to come over and clean up the juice stains. (Last time I was really sick that house ended up getting so dirty b/c I was keeping up on it and I "went off" on dh--This house is a mess! I can't stand it anymore!! He said I must be feeling better!)

Your doc does sound like he's on it--that is good. Glad he has ideas for the edema. My prayer is it all keep improving quickly and that you don't have to keep moving forward...but if so, that the other docs have wisdom and choose the right treatment.

You're not an old fart silly :) Or maybe I am just one too ! "Staying in" is the best kind of weekend to me now-a-days!

I'm praying for perseverance and healing friend...

SHE CALLED LAST SUMMER AND SAID " HUBBY OF 29 YEARS DIDN'T WANT TO BE MARRIED ANYMORE"

:blink::huh::o:o:ph34r:

OK -----WHEN SHE WAS PACKING UP THE 'MIC MANSION' IN A NEW HOME (MOVED FROM OUR NEIGHHOOD) I WENT FOR 4 DAYS AND HELPED HER SET UP THE GARAGE SALE TO GET RID OF 3/4 OF EVERYTHING SHE HAD ACCUMULATED FOR 29 YEARS...HER OTHER BEST FRIEND WHO LIVED IN HER NEW NEIGHBORHOOD...IS THE WIFE OF THE VASCULAR SURGEON WHO THE OFFICE SAID COULDN'T SEE ME TILL JULY 7TH

The prescription is MUPIROCIN and states do not get near your nose, eyes or mouth so I am a bit perplexed and unsure about how to proceed.

This is just my opinion, but I would ask for a second opinion, and fast. If it is staph, then it is a BIG deal, and being confused about your cream is not good. I would go to a derm if I were you. And quickly. Take what info you have and get a second opinion. Thats just me.

(I double checked the med, and it is used for bacteria, and staph is a bacteria, and accorinding to the manfacturer, it is ok to use around the nose, so that maybe a pharmacy warning, BUT I would still see a second doc for a second opinion, because staph can spread and cause a lot of problems internally. I saw a man who had a splinter, and ended up with a staph infection growing in his elbow, and had to be in the hospital for weeks, and have surgery to remove large parts of the muscle that was damaged. Since then, I am a nut about Antibacterial cleaner and stuff like that. Please be careful! I am going to PM you a link that I think you should read about staph and your face boils....)

SO "WHAT GOES ROUND COMES ROUND" AND GOD IS GOOD.

LOVE AND HUGS FOR HEALING TO ALL OF US.

JUDY :):):):)

I totally agree! I am so glad that you are getting in to see someone! You take care of yourself! You are the only Judy in Philly I have! I have a Judy in Russia, but she is far away! I hope they are able to take care of that cellulitis that is left (if they are right about that) with your anitbiotic problems. You feel better soon, and let your friend take care of you! You do it for other people all the time! Big Hug! (and I would bring you food, but PA is a long way from TX!! It would be cold by the time I got there!)

If I had your address, I would send you one of those paper boats made from news paper! But I don't, and since it is the thought that counts, I am sharing my thought with you! Here is a paper-boat-thought! <_{*_> Ok, tried to get a sail looking thing....don't know if it worked!

That is so great that your friend got you an appointment for tomorrow morning. July 7th is just to long to wait. You are right, what goes around, comes around. I can't believe that she called him in surgery. I am nervy, but not that nervy. I am glad that she was and cares so much for you. KEEP YOUR LEG UP. Love and many Hugs, for more progressive healing.

I also love the boat. I emailed you to see if you were one of the ones who had to evacuate. I was concerned as you would not need that also, with what else is on your plate.

I had something similar to this a year or two ago--just one mild boil, but the doctor took a culture, said (with some surprise) that it was staph, which shocked ME, as I've only had strep throat once in college, otherwise I never got it, even when everyone around me got it). He gave me mupirocin cream, and it cleared up very quickly, but the coloring on that one spot (on my cheek) has never looked exactly the same as it did.

judy- I'm so glad you'll get in tomorrow. STOP MOVING FURNITURE- you're such a punk (I speak from experience as it's something I would do and hubby would kill me too :P ). Get as much rest as you can. Wish I could send you central air conditioning in addition to the boat (don't think I can draw it on line tho :D ).

Let us know how it goes tomorrow.

Sally, definitely stay on top of the staph infection. They can be really vicious.

I'm sad everyone is having such a hard time right now. judy, armetta, karen and sally- lot of prayers and hugs and health to all! Beverly

Hugs,

Tanya

Thanks for asking. Meg's not feeling too well, but the D seems better. She felt a bit better tonight, so I hope that is a sign that tomorrow will be better. Thanks for asking. glad you're enjoying your clean room. I don't think it's work hurting your leg over, though. I'm one to talk, though. Hard to point at you when 3 fingers are pointing back at me. :P Take care and hope you feel better tomorrow.
