I have been reading posts for a while and have found this forum so informative and helpful , I think you guys are amazing. I havent posted before, but have a question that I wondered if anyone can help with, particularly those of you in the UK. I have UC, and have been in remission for over a year (fab!), but am still on 125mg of Azathioprine, which obviously effects my immune system.
Last weekend, I travelled 250 miles to visit my very sick Grandfather in hospital, admitted with a heart attack, got progressively worse with an infection. I found out today that it is MRSA, the hospital apparently knew this a week ago, despite us visiting daily, and phoning twice a day too, they didnt let us know! Whilst, of course I don't regret having visited him, if I had known it was MRSA, I may well not have been kissing him, feeding him, and wiping out his dry mouth when he was nil by mouth.
My question is, have I put myself at risk, should I be getting myself checked out?
Thanks in advance to anyone that can advise
