Has she been diagnosed Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) infection previously?
I dont think so. She was in hospital in June 2011 for 1 week with swollen painful feet & legs (she could hardly walk) with blisters all over. They told us it was cellulitis.
What did the culture test show?
Dr.are you referring to current infection or 2011 one?
I am assuming so. We see the surgeon today for those results. Can I resume our conversation later today or tomorrow after seeing the surgeon?
The culture test would identify the bacteria and also tell about the best antibiotic to cure the infection.
Let me know what surgeon said.
