Staph Infection - What to do next

I have a feeding tube that was surgically placed in my stomach. It was placed in March and since then I have had 3 staph infections with this current one being the worst. I was started on Bactrim last Thursday but was taken off of it on Friday because it was making me sick. I was then put on Augmentin and it is doing the same thing.

I am a stomach sleeper and it hurts too bad to sleep that way so I started sleeping on my side and now I can't even do that because it hurts to bad. Even changing the dressing on it hurts which I do several times a day because of all the drainage.

What should I do next I am at my wits end.
