Well i'm going to give in!
« on: November 14, 2016, 07:33:04 am »
Going to the hospital this morning. Leg is still red and swollen, painfull, to touch and walk on. Had a spot off redness show up under my left eye last night. Don't really want to go cause I think they will hook me up to a iv andkeep me a few days. I have wood to haul and no one to drive my truck.

  You gotta set priorities, staying healthy/alive should be near the top.

next time you get a prescription try GoodRx.com to see where you can get it cheapest.

did that for my Mom's Med's. Walmart with her discounts came to $125, with GoodRx it was $71

Still setting home, It seems a little better. Swelling is down, redness is going away, still sore to touch. Raining hard here so I guess its a good day to do nothing. I am hauling wood Thursday and Friday. ;D

Well one month later and I spent today in hospital again! Never really went totally away, so now im on horse size antibiotics! Did a bunch of lab work and all it showed was a infection. 10 days of these , hope it goes away.

They scanned for blood clots both times, non there. Blood work shows signs of infection. Not as bad as when I went before but still red and swelled up some. Cellulitous can be hard to get rid of.

Yes, it can be very hard to get rid of.  Did they do any cultures to identify the specific pathogen?  With some of the drug resistance issues popping up, being able to identify exactly what is infecting you, so the most effective medicine can be used is becoming much more necessary.

Good luck.
