I went back to the doctor's office today to have my bump inspected. She is not happy with the progress so far. Leave it to me to get a drug-resistant, drug-resistant Staph infection. She has now got me on another antibiotic that is supposed to be 85% - 95% effective in killing this bug. Not sure why she didn't use it first. She said it was more expensive but it cost me the same - I guess my insurance is absorbing the cost. I hope it works since the next antibiotic is an IV drip.
During the changing of the packing, I experience probably some of the worst pain ever. It was a sharp pain and is soon calmed down to a moderate pain. Thinking it wasn't so bad I opened my eyes to see that she had stopped doing anything to the bump and was waiting for me to calm down. I could have swore she was still probing around. Not encouraging. Next time we numb that sucker.
I go back on Friday and we may have the lab results by then so we can be sure what I got myself into.
