This is the second time for me too, the first time was so painful I couldn't walk and went to the ER where they cut my leg open to get the poison out, I didn't hurt by that time cause the skin was dead or dying, all I felt was a gushing of hot liquid from my leg.
This time I caught it the same day I got bit, and they put me on strong antibiotics, but 3 hours later had the 102 fever I wrote here about.
The area around this one is so hot and swollen, I know all that skin is going to die off, but better the skin and another scar than me dying from it.
Maybe I am not supposed to have back surgery!!
To anyone here who doesn't know about the brown recluse spider. Take a #2 pencil, tap it on a piece of paper and BINGO! You just made the size of one of these killing machines!! (But get the pain drugs ready, you get ALOT of pain for ALONG time).
move back up north, boohoo. I can't even garden here without SOMETHING trying to kill me
PM just called, they moved me up Monday morning at 6:30am for the ESI & Facet injections. This should be gone soon, considering what I am taking and that I caught it early (last week), it is beginning to open itself up and drain, my leg should start going down soon as well.
Thanks for listening all,
