Just wondering if anyone else has ever been told they have MRSA in there sputum!! i saw my asthma nurse on monday and thought i had a chest infection as couging up really horrible gunk and also some blood! they sent of a sample and started some levofloxacn, my gp phoned today and told me the sample showed MRSA however she wasnt sure if it was colonised or active infection, she told me to see how it goes over the weekend as the only treatment would be iv antibiotics and she knows i hate hospital anyway i am not sure what she wants me to look for as i allready feel like i have an infection but not to bad! she later phoned again and left a message to pick up a prescription for some trimethprim, which i have done.
anyway enough rambling:
my question is could this be why my asthma has been so horrendous? could of the infection been there for ages? also has anyone else had this? should i push to have it treated more aggresively?
i am currently under the RBH and i am supposed to be going in in three weeks, should i let them know?
I am really confused about it and this doesnt help when i allready feel rough and in a lot of pain from chest!!
any advice gratefully recieved
