    PostPosted: Wed Sep 26, 2007 1:37 am    Post subject: MRSA Information Reply with quote

    Rog,

    Your daughter should be evaluated for MRSA. I do not know whether or not you have been informed on MRSA so here is an excellent site with information on MRSA. http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/mrsa/DS00735

    These infections are not likely due to the Lyme bacterium, but rather risk factors associated with a chronic illness. Typically, Lyme disease patient's immune systems are weakened, making them easy targets for bacterial and viral infections. Because we are ill, we are exposed to more medical procedures where there is the potential for infection. Some also believe that there are risks involved in the overuse of antibiotics.

    As your daughter's advocate, you need to be clear on her diagnosis, potential health concerns and risks and proper treatment methods to ensure her safety and well-being. MRSA can only be treated with a limited number of antibiotics, therefor it is important to know whether or not she has it, and the proper way to treat her infections.

    Regarding antibiotic therapy, one always needs to weigh the risks vs. the benefits. There are consequences for both, so it is important to track the negatives and positives regarding any treatment. If the list of negatives outweighs the list of positives for anyone, that is not the suitable treatment for that person. There is no cookie cutter treatment... everyone requires individualized treatment protocols. I would encourage you to have an open dialogue with your daughter and make it clear to her that she does have a voice in all of this. Encourage her to share how she is feeling with you. Always be supportive of her sharing, as this will be the best indicator regarding treatment success or failure. She needs to feel as though she can share any information with you.

    I hope this has been helpful. Best of luck to your daughter in her pursuit for good health.

    Peace.
    Edie
