Good morning all. Sorry to change the subject but I feel this is very important to me but to all of your guy's on here. I just got my report back on my culture. I have a infection called Staphylococcus Epidermidis which is a UTI but this infection is different. It is dangerous because it does not respond well to antibiotics. Most of the common used ones. This bacterium species normally is not harmful but just like others it can become pathogenic. At risk are individuals with weakened immune systems. The vast majority of cases are observed in people with catheters and other devices including artificial heart valves. They usually contract the infection in a hospital setting. This infection can show up in different parts of the body. The infection is usually developed during the surgery but the patient may not experience any systems for up to a year. Besides fever and fatigue, systems also can have night sweats, unintented weight loss, chronic cough, shortness of breath, pale skin, blood in urine, and red spots on the skin. Well I have had all of theses at one point or another. If you guy's remember I had a heart monitor put in a couple of years ago. Also November of 2016 I had a 9 hour heart ablation. A week later I had Pneumonia, Last year in November I was in the hospital went in with cold sweats and could not breath. Heart was fine but kidneys shut down and my bladder was inflamed. Also been seeing red spots all over my body. Look like a pimple but no head. Also over the last year and a half lost 110 pounds. So when did I pick this up. When I had the monitor put in or when I had the ablation. My urologist is putting me one Bactrim 800/160 Don't know what else is in it. I will see when I pick it up. I am writing this because I want all you guys to be careful. I never new this could happen. You go in to get help and you can pick something up that can kill you if you don't catch it in time. Take care and God help us all. Ken
