Have had MRSA x3 osteomyelitis x 2, first time was after I fell and fx my L shoulder about a week after the intial surgery,I spent about a month in and out of the hospital 4 surgies in 30 days awound vac
, something left over the the concentration camps , so painfull it took 35 mg of IV morphine to change the the dressing every 2 days , it basically speeds up healing by debriding the wound with giant pieces of what you would use to scrub (scrubbies) your BBQ grill , it is hooked to a vaccumn that you drag with you .It is about the size of a toaster and weighs about ten lbs . I'd guess. second time was when I had elective surgery tarsal tunnel on my L foot . it took about 3 weeks before the MRSA showed up .vanco and a trip to the hospital , wound vac again . but then a few weeks later I got it again .this time surgery to clean the wound again osteomyelitis and vanco .that drug is awful makes you as sick as a dog .I was so sick to my stomach .question is
does osteo weaken the bones?am concerned about my ankle since now I've develpoed neuropathy in my foot and can hardly feel my L foot am afraid I will step wrong and break my ankle.I live upstairs .though am careful things happen.
