They put me on IV antibiotics. Sent me back home with picc line. Had me on vancomycin. Was ok for a while. Since 2009, I've had outbreaks ever since. The past year I've been on bactrim, this did not do anything. Then he put me on this new drug in December 2014 called sivextro 6 pills taken once a day. The infection is in the lower part of abdomen. It came back week after I finished taking it. Doctor put me back on it in January 2015. after taking it, infection came back 6 days later. The surgeon who who did my hernia was the only one who has been treating me. I'm going to see an infection disease doctor in hope she can help me. I'm also diabetic. Don't know what else to do. Any suggestions.
I got mrsa in a hospital after a hernia surgery in 2008. was sent home & had to return with fever?

He's not treating you long enough. it can take weeks of vanc not days to get rid of it. All that is being done is its being suppressed. The silvextro should have put a dent in it. MRSA is a b@#$# to get rid of, for anyone. Being diabetic is a strike against your healing too. The one thing you can do besides see the infec disease dr is keep your blood sugar down.
