@migizii I have been fortunate to not have experienced this (yet) but got an email yesterday from NTM Info & Research that had an article that new NTM guidelines have just been released. Perhaps you can find it online as I have no idea how to get it from my email to this site…..
I hope everything goes well tomorrow. It sounds like you have great faith in your surgeon and take your time at you follow up getting further guidance on how to proceed with your recovery. You are so very brave!
@migizii I guess my typing was pretty bad last week…..anyway, I had my follow up appointment for my foot surgery, stitches were removed and I was transferred to a boot (to walk on my heel only for the next 4 weeks). Everything looked real good and there were no signs of infection, so the fever I had was unrelated to the surgery and the antibiotics alleviated that and some of the foot pain…..progress in increments😊
If possible, I would opt for an airline that more strictly adheres to distancing guidelines as much as they can. American Airlines is now filling all seats on their planes, while Delta continues to keep spacing. Also, of course, masks, gloves, sanitize and bring whatever you need on the plane yourself. Just my ideas. I just got home from Rochester. We stayed at the Hilton, Mayo area, and it was wonderful. Couldn’t have asked for more!

@sueinmn Thanks so much for your concern. It seems to be going up and down now in the normal to mid 99’s, which is progress, so they are less concerned now. However, pain continues at a high rate so will need to continue pain medication until I have name follow up next Thursday. I’ll let you know if anything changes for the worse, but hopefully it will get better from here!

I liked Jon Stewart’s comments about face masks. He discussed that if the people who refuse to wear masks have surgery, then they should tell the doctors to take off their masks when operating on them as “there is no reason for it”

@sueinmn That’s a good idea to discuss at my follow up appointment. Right now I’m struggling with a fever and increased pain. I hope it’s nothing too concerning.
