Yep--I had no symptoms--it was just routine for them to take a culture during the sinus surgery. I do MRI scans in a hospital, and I have been exposed to patients with MRSA. Take all the precautions I can, of course, but evidently I became a carrier with no symptoms.
Also, last year when my husband developed non-Hodgkins lymphoma, he ended up with an MRSA, too.
Have an appt with GI doc in a couple of days to discuss options. Guess I have more than one reason to be glad I had the surgery!
I was given Bactrim and gentimyecin--a six week course.
It's very important to get the right antibiotic to kill your particular MRSA. My ENT doc cultured the infection and then they tried various meds on it to see which one would work with this particular strain.
I feel like a Typhoid Mary right now. Have an appt with the eye doc today and will be sure to tell them about it.
