Is anyone dealing with soft tissue MRSA. I had a knee replacement and MRSA was found after the new knee put in. I went through the vanco IV, etc. and now on antibiotics for the rest of my life..... anyone else dealing with this or have found any other forms of treatment? This is a new diagnosis (6 months).. so I am concerned about long term effects of use of antibiotics and what other options are available.
