    Please continue to pray for me

    Hi my brothers and sisters, been MIA for a bit. As you may know I was facing surgery for some issues. I was diagnosed with melanoma on my right knee, upon prep for surgery getting a "nuke" scan on me, it was diagnosed along with the biopsy done, it was most definitely melanoma and it was malignant. The "nuke" scan also revealed other malignant melanomas were in my body and they were very aggressive . The doctors went work in removing those turmors. What as to be like a 2-3 inch incision turned out to be approximately 7 to 8 inches. Ok...fine just get this stuff out of me. 1 day after the surgery I had drainage seeping from the wounds and the pain was around a 9 to 10 level. I was directed to get to the ER ASAP. I got there, was immediately admitted, taken back to the OR where they discovered that MRSA has attacked my wounds and was spreading. This MRSA is extremely aggressive and I was advised that it was life threatening (not what I wanted to hear). I not only had/have MRSA (which many do whether they know it or not) I'm also a carrier, which means simply I can spread it and will ALWAYS have it and any infection I may get is dangerous. I underwent more surgery, have a GAPING wound now with a WOUND VAC attached to me now too. If you don't know what this is it's not a fun device to have hooked to your body, the 2nd I've had. Anyway, please continue to remember me in your prayers and my family too. My wife is torn up but I keep telling her it will be fine, for my faith relies wholly in the GREAT HEALER. I won't be on much for a while, but will check in from time to time. God bless each of you, I truly love each and every one of y'all.....Your friend.....GUNGUY49....Tony

    GG49,

    I'm praying for you, your family and your healthcare professionals. Continue your trust in God, get well soon and get back to us when you can.

    I refuse to tiptoe through life only to arrive safely at death!

    I shoot to support my reloading habit

    Until HE comes, or calls me home, here by the power of Christ, I'll stand.

    I'm so sorry, I cared for my mother for many years and she too had MRSA. Wound vacs can do a lot of good, as much as you will probably hate it. I've had two relatives that had their MRSA wounds heal after using wound vacs, although it did take a long time. Be patient, and have faith it can heal.

    Tony you have been moved to the top of my prayer wheel. A tuff fight but you can beat this. To think I complain every time I have to go in for another stent. Rest and heal.

    Tony, having been a victim of MRSA myself, having a total of 14 general anesthesia procedures over the course of a year, and a thirty day regimen of Vancomicyin I.V's twice a day, I have a pretty good idea what you are going through. The debridement s, are a b---- when the morphine wears off and you haven't had anything for pain because you were in the surgery waiting room for an extra hour and the anesthesiologist forgets to give you a heavy dose of pain killer before you wake up. If I had a gun in my recovery room, I would have shot the sorry sob and then myself, the pain was that bad. It took morphine, a shot of toredahl and a fentanyl patch to get me out of pain.

    Most likely, I got the MRSA infection in my first minor surgery. I highly recommend the Vancomycin if it still works as a silver bullet for MRSA infections. Like you said, the infection can live in your body and then return as skin lesions, or attack the heart valves.

    Hopefully, the so called doctor who wouldn't remove a cast from my hand 20 years ago to check for infection, and gave me a speech on how there was no way my hand could be infected is dead now, so I don't feel the urge to shoot him if I ever see him again.

    My heartfelt prayers go out to you.
