They checked my blood, everything looked good, wbc way up at 22000 thanks to Neulasta, and no indication of systemic disease. However, they think I have MRSA
(very resistant staph infection
) and put me on Minocycline for now but it looks like I have to go on Vancomycin, the last ditch antibiotic, intravenously, tomorrow, as there is little improvement (pain is gone, chills are gone, swelling is worse; no fever).
Has anybody had a staph infection during their chemo?
