    Re: Systemic MRSA Staph

    Just type in systemic MRSA stap and lots of information should come up. Basically it is a MRSA infection that has spread systemically throughout the body - it can involve the joints, heart, muscles, bones, spleen and the lungs.

    She has Methicillin resistant staph aureus. You might try doing an internet search on this and see what comes up. What kind of symptoms does she have?

    My husband had a staph infection in 2001. It wasn't MRSA (at least not that I know of - this was 6 years ago) but he was very sick and in the hospital for 10 days and on central line IV antibiotics for 6 weeks at home afterwards. When he first got sick he was complaining of pain in his back behind his shoulder blade. Turns out he had a deep abscess behind his shoulder blade that he required surgery for to clean it out due to the MRSA.

    I'm glad to hear she is in the hospital hopefully getting the best possible care she can. My husband had a very high fever for quite a few days before the antibiotics started kicking in and clearing up the infection.
