How long hospitalized for cellulitis/staph?
I'm a post-surgical patient (last week was surgery) and I'm showing possible signs of cellulitis (possible staph) under the skin at the surgery site. My doctor wants me to come straight into be admitted, sight unseen, just in case. I think that's excessive -- shouldn't doctor look at me first to determine whether I'm actually having a problem? I'm so tired of the hopsital, have been there for over a week with the surgery, and I"m just wondering how long IV antibiotic treatment for cellulitis usually lasts.
