Well just had a wonderful experience--sinus surgery! If they didn't get it right this time, they won't get another chance, believe me! Not fun.
Problem is, they found I had a good MRSA going in my sinuses and I didn't even have any real sinus problems. The surgery was to stop severe nosebleeds and fix a deviated septum. May have picked it up at the hospital where I still work parttime.
Now -- I'm due my 4th remicade infusion in a few days, and my ENT doc has put me on a 6-week antibiotic regime to try to kill the MRSA. Anybody out there had any similar experiences? Judylyn, was it you that had sinus infection problems?
I'll be contacting my GI doc tomorrow, and in the meantime, I'm gonna double up on my probiotics for sure!
