Surgery - AGAIN?! Well-my darn foot required ANOTHER surgery last weekend!!! My foot started swelling and VERY painful after going to Disneyland over that weekend. I went in to my doctor and he thought I broke it again. So the next day, I went in to my foot surgeon who said no it was not broken, but I had developed cellulitis. So I was put on oral antibiotics. Well, 3 days later the redness has spread to the rest of the foot and starting to go up my calf. So I had to go to the foot doctor the next morning-who had to lance it and then straight to the hospital for IV antibiotics. If that wasn't enough-the next morning he had to open the foot back up and do a antibiotic wash and make sure the staph had not gotten under the hardware. Thankfully we caught this before it got to the bone or my blood. BUT-now it is such a SLOW recovery. The oral antibiotics are chewing my stomach up. We are going back and forth on putting a PIC line in and having IV anitibiotics at home every day. So it is a daily process. Thanks to my lupus and the drugs I am on to treat it-I can no longer fight infections and that is why this whole thing happened. Funny that MAY is Lupus awareness month huh?! All I do is sit on a sofa with my foot up or sleep. I have no energy! So I am hoping the next couple of weeks will bring some good news with this foot!
